Build A Birthday with Candles on Top

Today I have a super little card, that could also be used as a gift tag, using the Brights Colour Collection of classic ink pads to create a unisex card suitable for a child or teenager
The Stamp set is a newcomer to the Stampin Up! Catalogue


This card really highlights where Stampin Up! comes into it's own, and that is with their co-ordinated colour collections
This takes all the worries out of what colour to put with what, as all the colours in a collection mix and match with one another.

Perfect for the novice, or for those moments when time to plan projects is limited and you just want something quick and easy.

And here are the products used today

I have included the recommended Acrylic Blocks on the list too

Table built using Product Table Builder by The Crafty Owl - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

The rectangular patterned stamps in the set, can be used to make a cake on a stand, (as in tomorrows card), or like today, to make birthday candles as well as creating a background fir the card.

I used 2nd & third generation stamping (this just means how many times I stamp onto the Whisper White cardstock before re-inking my stamp), to create a more subtle conal effect for the background. I then mat (layered) this onto a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock, and them onto a panel of Pacific Point cardstock

The same inks were used to stamp the candles, but this time I used just first generation stamping.

I then used the tag topper punch to make a decorative tag and threaded through some Jute Ribbon, tied off with some Melon Mambo Ribbon.
Next I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock approximately 2cm wide, and used the Triple Banner Punch to create banner ends to the label,
This was then attached to the tag using Stampin Dimensionals
I then mounted the tag onto the card front  using Stampin Dimensionals for that 3D effect.
