Candle Birthday Cards by Lesley

Hey everyone. Lesley here with a couple of birthday cards for you.
Now.......i don't make cards. Can't remember the last time i made one.......but we are talking a good few years!

I attacked these in the same way i attack my journal pages.
Armed with stencils, paint and stamps.......i got creating!

I used Kraft coloured card blanks. Using my fingers i smeared paint straight over the card blank.
And then i built up the layers using stencils, more paint and stamps.

I snipped the candle parts of the candelabra, painted them white with a yellow flame and then heat embossed the white part.
I added white fabric tape and a sticker to finish.

I had another another card had to be made!

Paints and stencils were used. And a couple of stamps.

I painted the candles in the same way as the previous card........but rather than heat embossing them........i added two coats of liquid wax. Really tricky to photograph......but they do look like actual candles with the wax on top!

More tape was added and a sentiment stamp to finish.

So, if you need a quick and easy birthday card......make sure you have these little candelabras in your stash!

Thanks for reading.

Ingredients used.
