Candle Border Punch Birthday Card

Candle Border Punch.0217Well, vacation is over and it’s time to get back to work!  I had a great time up in the mountains doing pretty much nothing.  My cousin got me hooked on HGTV again and that’s probably not a good thing.  I usually don’t watch much TV and now I seem to have it on constantly.  The one good thing about that is that I haven’t bee reading too much.  Hmm…it’s sounding like I have trouble staying on task…..

This is one of the 8 cards that I’ve designed for my All-Occasion Card Buffet Class next week.  I think it’s pretty fun.  A person can never have too many birthday cards on hand, right?

Don’t you love the row of candles punch on the bottom of the card?  They’re made with the new Candle Border Punch found at the bottom of page 7 in the Occasions Catalog.  It’s easy to miss because it’s so small.

I punched my row of candles first before running the Daffodil Delight card stock  through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  That way I could figure out how to place the card stock on the embossing folder.

I used the Stylized Birthday stamp for my sentiment.  This is one of those stamps that was collecting dust on my shelf.  So glad I found a use for it finally!  It’s a great size to be the focal point on a card.  I’m not sure why I haven’t used it before now!  Sheesh!

If you’re in the Denver area and would like to attend my Card Buffet next Tuesday (morning or evening session) just let me know!  There’s plenty of room!  🙂

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
