This has recently become my go to birthday card design. It really showcases wonderful designer series papers from Stampin' Up!. It is a simple design that I can change to each individual birthday by changing the paper that is used.
The background blocks are done with various Prints Designer paper colors and the Big Birthday Candle is stamped on to some scraps of Jersey Shore dsp. The flames are stamped on shimmery white cardstock so they have a pretty sparkle to them in real life. I found this sketch in my notes and it was so specific that I am pretty sure that this is practically a case of someone’s work, so if it is you please let me know so that I can give you the appropriate credit.
