Birthday Candles

Hello there, if you have been following me for a while, you will know how much I struggle with male cards. I made the effort the last few days to try and make some more of them. I have used the candles from the PTI Birthday Style die collection as the focal point for these cards.
 

For the first one, I took the candle die and cut this six times. Three using blue paper from the LF Pint Sized Patterns: Beachside collection and then three using yellow paper from the LF Let's Polka collection. These dies come attached, as in the flame part and candle are together. So this is why I needed three of each colour. I cut them apart and then added them to a white card panel.
 
 
The panel was added to a Bazill Blueberry Sour card base with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment, from the WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments set, on to a separate piece of cardstock. This was cut with banner ends and then added on top of the candles with more foam tape. I finished off by adding Glossy Accents to the flames on the candles.

For the next card, I pretty much kept it the same, apart from I used the light blue/aqua paper from the Pint Sized Patterns: Beachside collection.
 

I also used SSS Surf Blue cardstock for the card base. The sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted Many Mini Messages set.

I think you could make these cards in a number of colours, for both male and female recipients. Many thanks for visiting me today. I hope you all have a great weekend!
