4th of July Card ~ Candle (post #2)

Welcome everyone!
This is my second card today.

I'd like to thank Lori snd Kathy D from Clearly iStamps by Clearly Digi Stamps for this CUTE digital set that included the outline for this candle. I won it in June on their monthly Clearly iStamp blog hop.

This will be a short post so I can use my Cricut and Silhouette to make some cuts before the husband goes to bed. lol

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in. and stamped with a CTMH firework stamp using CTMH Real Red and Indian Corn stamp pads.
*Stripe strip cut at 5 x 3 in. from Reminisce design paper.
*Banner cut at 4 in. from the Cricut Pretty Pendants cartridge, embossed with the stripe folder from the Cuttlebug  Retro Kitchen set, then the top was punched with the  EK Success Starry Night corner punch.
*Candle from the Eat More Cake Clearly iStamps  digital image set.
*Candle base embossed with the stripe folder from the Cuttlebug  Retro Kitchen set after ink from the Real Red ink pad was rolled on the folder.
*Candle flame embossed with the Cuttlebug Daisy Blast folder then sponged with the Indian Corn stamp pad.
*Sentiment stamp is from CTMH.
*Foam tape added to give dimension.
*Edges sponged with the CTMH Real Red and Indian Corn stamp pads.

May your day always be filled with love.

  14. What fun! i love the card background paper - it sets the scene for the embellishments that follow which are adorable! Your interpretation of a firework fuse exploding is so great! You have an "explosive" thread that runs throughout the card and the small stars add a playful "boom". great work!
