Birthday Candles Card - Woodware USA Challenge #31


Pin It Monday means a new challenge at the Woodware USA Blog! This week we are challenging our customers and fans to create a birthday card. As soon as I started planning this card in my mind, I knew I wanted to incorporate real birthday candles. After finding these pretty pink ones at Hobby Lobby, I got to work using Woodware USA's Special Wishes stamp set.

I hope you will check out the details of the challenge HERE and play along with us this week. I will be back in about a day with a blog candy that is sponsored by Woodware USA!
Just the details… (1) Stamped the sentiment onto vellum so you could see a bit of the candles and colored paper underneath it, (2) Adhered the candles to the card with some glue lines and tied some teal twine around them for decoration, (3) Used foam dots to adhered the 'frame' for the candles.

Challenges used for this card:
 Woodware USA - WWUSAC31 Birthday
