Build a Birthday card for SB113

Hi everyone, it’s time for another Stamping and Blogging Sketch Challenge 🙂 and this week I decided to use the Build a Birthday stamp set.  I love how Stampin’ Up! have designed this set so that you can make a layered cake or use the same stamps for making candles, pretty cool huh.  Anyway here is my card for SB113.

I used the 1/2″ Circle Punch on the corners of the card that the saying is stamped on, and then added some of the new Gold Metallic Thread to add a little interest behind the saying.  I can see myself using this thread a lot, so fine but ever so pretty.  You may be wondering what stamp I used to create the background on the card, well it is not a stamp lol, I inked up the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and used that as a stamp.

Using a dauber is a great and easy way to add a two-toned effect to the flame.  All I did was ink up the flame stamp using the lightest colour first (Crushed Curry) and then lightly daubered some Tangerine Tango around the bottom and edge.  I then popped the top end of the candle up on a dimensional to create a little dimension.  As you can see I stamped the inside of the card too 🙂
