The More Candles, The Bigger The Wish

 Hello crafters!  I just love these All In One designs, they are so quick and easy!  So here is another one for you.  I started with a piece of pixie powdered card from my stash.  Unusual colours for me, Mango Blaze and Golden Mint, but I rather liked the brightness of it!  I cut The More Candles, The Bigger The Wish die out of it.  I cut it again out of black card and shadowed it and added a white backing the same size.  I used the fall away letters and paper pieced them back into the banner.  I added glitter to the cupcake top using Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut the scalloped backing in black and glued them together then added foam mounting to the back.  Next I embossed a piece of white card with the Moroccan Tile embossing folder.  I ran a bead of dries clear glue around the edge and glittered it and allowed it to dry.  I added the All In One to it in the centre.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now.

Hi Sue and a bigger creamier cake to hold them all right? Looking at this sample as it loads made me think that anyone receiving a card made with this die will have nothing like it, and that's what I love doing for people - making a one off, something no- one else will ever own and that's down to you for giving us the tools to make people smile (although its really hard to think of 20++ totally different designs for one order) I love today's inspiration especially the thought of a bigger cake lol. STAY SAFE KEEP CARING xxx 💖

Hello Sue and all
Fabulous colours of pixie powders really make this card bright and happy. I am really enjoying making backgrounds at the moment now that Christmas cards are finished and will definitely try these colours.

Hi Sue. A great super quick card today and the best thing about this design is that by using different colours it can be made for either gender.


Tressa said...

A very different colouring today. Unusual. I like it!


Crafty Cruiser said...

Nice card but I think the black mounting detracts a little. For me, maybe a plain mustard would have been better.

Great post, love the all in one dies as they make it so simple to create and effective card....

Wonderful quick and pretty birthday card. Don't we all need those? Is the background EF Moroccan Tile? I thought it might be the more modern poinsettia? Could use that one if not.
Everyone, a good Tuesday. I am going to venture out to the post office and get some packages mailed. Always fun.

Hi Sue
Your all in one dies are great for a quick card but it’s all the other touches you add that makes the card so special. Love the pixie powder colours, I’ll definitely try those together

Love and hugs to everyone
