Build a Birthday

CCMC359Happy Thursday everyone!  WOW…I can’t believe it’s Thursday already!  I sort of lost track of time this week.  Of course though, I’ve been busy getting things designed for Create with Connie and Mary LIVE that is coming up in July!  Are you coming?  I HOPE SO!!!  We have such GREAT projects and so much fun planned for you!  Head over to Create with Connie and Mary to sign up NOW!

Oh…let’s get back to my card…I had a card class this past week and we did the candles like this one a card.  I REALLY liked the look of the candles and decided they would work perfectly with today’s sketch challenge…and they DID!  Don’t you just LOVE it when that happens?  I do!

Here’s the details…

  • Bermuda Bay – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Polka Dotted print (Cherry on Top dsp) –  one strip 5 x 1 1/2 and one 4 1/2 x 1 1/4, add strips to card front
  • Whisper White – 2 3/8 x 3 5/8, run through Elegant Dots Embossing Folder and layer on Watermelon Wonder 2 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp candles – largest/Watermelon Wonder, diagonal striped/Cucumber Crush, Dotted/Bermuda Bay, flame/Crushed Curry.  Cut everything out and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black on Crushed Curry 5/8 x 8, cut into a banner on both ends and add using dimensionals

  1. What a fun celebration card with all the bright colors! Love those three candles!

  2. Love the colours – such a cheery birthday card! Love the embossing folder too – both you and Connie used it and I didn’t even notice it in the new catalogue!

  3. So cute! I love that embossing folder…like Joanne, I hadn’t even seen it in the new catalogue so thank you for showcasing it on your card. 🙂

  4. I am loving all of the bright colors I am seeing with this new paper! What a super cute card, Mary. It is bright and cheery, and stands on its own without embellishments. Love that!

  5. Can you tell that I am drawn to these colors, too!? Your card is so celebratory and fun! Love it!

  6. What a festive birthday card! I love the bright colors; those large candles are such fun and work great with this sketch!
