Hello My Fellow Crafters,
Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for our niece Riley. When you live in Florida you get your drivers license when you are sixteen. So I wanted to make a super cute card that had 16 candles plus some kind of car to celebrate this special birthday.
I wasn’t sure on the color theme so decided to just make it really colorful since we are celebrating a sweet sixteen birthday 🙂
I used the Cricut Expression to cut the image of a zebra driving a car from the Paisley Cricut Cartridge. Then using the new Sizzix Big Shot Plus machine and a thin metal die of a candle, I cut out 16 candles on white cardstock and then stamped the outline of the candle in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored each one with all different colors of Copic markers. (the stamp set and metal dies are from The Stamps of Life)
Now for the fun part. Putting all these pieces together using all different size pot dots to layer the candles and the car onto the base of the card for a really “pop off the card” look. I think I accomplished what I wanted to do 🙂
~ Happy Birthday Riley ~
