Light the Candles for This Simple Birthday Card

Create this Birthday Wishes Card using the Cake Fancy Stamp Set with the Opaque Faceted Gems by Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

One of the most gratifying parts of creating today’s birthday card was placing the adhesive backed Opaque Faceted Gems (Calypso Coral, Pecan Pie, Pool Party) on each candle “flame.”  The gems add so much color and personality and inspired the color combination.

WHAT I LOVE!  Check out the fun and funky die cut “stitching” on the 5 x 3 3/4 Calypso Coral layer.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Stitched with Whimsy dies to dial up the details.
