Birthday Candles


Hi everyone,

The Stamps of Life are releasing three new stamp sets today…. morecandles2stamp; morechalksayings2stamp and candycorn2cut.

Today I am featuring the morecandles2stamp stamp set which coordinates with the candles4birthdays stamp set and the coordinating die set.


For my first card today I created a Gatefold card using the Sizzix Royal Stand-Up Card Framelits and the Sizzix Royal Labels Framelits. You can see how to create this style of card using the Stand Up dies in a video created by Stephanie Barnard here.


Here is the inside of my card, I added a sentiment and the candle border which is also from the morecandles2stamp stamp set.

For my second card today, I have used the Sizzix Elegant Stand-ups Card Framelits to create a Stand-Ups card. I have decorated the card using TSOL Candles4birthday; Morecandles2stamp and the coordinating die set.

Here is a side view of my card so you can see how the Stand-Up section works

Here is what my card looks like when it is closed, ready to be placed in an envelope.

One last card for today ... this is a fairly simple card, we all need those on occasions right! Again I have used the Candles4birthday; Morecandles2stamp and the coordinating die set.
