Belated birthday card ....

...  First up - Happy New Year to you all.  It's been quite sometime since I posted anything on my blog.  I was very busy last year with renovations on our house and I found it almost impossible to get into my craft room.  However, I made a resolution that this year will be different.  I've spent the last few days getting my craft room tidied up and have finally done it - a card!

Stamps: Concord & 9th - Birthday Stacks; MFT - Bitty Birthday Wishes
Inks: Versafine - Black Onyx; Gina K - Onyx Black
Dies: Concord & 9th - Birthday Stacks
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Copic Markers; Nuvo Aqua Shimmer - Clear; Clear Embossing Powder

Sadly, while I've made a card, it is going to be late! Still it's the thought that counts.  I'm submitting this card to Perfectly CAS - PCAS#4 and to Fab Friday - FABF#180.  Please excuse the photo above - the light wasn't great last night.  I'll try to take a new photo tomorrow and change the photo.

I cut a panel of white card, stamped the candles, coloured them with Copic markers, restamped in Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  I added the sentiment, and then used the co-ordinating die to cut out the candles.  I layered the panel onto a black card base.  I added sparkle to all the candles using a clear shimmer brush. On the inside I cut another white panel, slightly smaller than the card, added a simple greeting and another row of candles at the bottom of the panel.

I took a close up of the candles to show the colours slightly better - you can clearly see the sparkle in the photo above!!

This card will be in the post tomorrow and the recipient will get it when she gets back from her holiday.  That's all for this evening.  I hope to be back tomorrow with another card. Bye for now.

This is great, I love how that die cut edge pops against the black. And it's gender neutral too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Perfectly CAS, Anita x

Love the way the candle flames show up against the black, it intensifies the effect.
