Cycle Celebration Sweet Birthday Card

Easily, one of my very favorite new stamp sets is the Cycle Celebration.  Fun, fun, fun.  I love the bicycle in this set but I also love the candles.  Well, really, I love just about everything about this set.

I wanted to group three bright candles together as the focal point for this card so I used the Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper for color inspiration and chose Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie and Strawberry Slush for my candles.  Using Paper Snips I had no trouble trimming these out in a snap.

Also, I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter shimmer to the flames with 2-way glue.  And I added a sliver of dimensionals under the tops of the candles so they would stand out from the card a little.

Because I chose the bright colors for the candles and I wanted them to stand out on the card I chose a paper from the pack with a monochrome pattern to complement the candles and the message.  The paper backed with a piece of Island Indigo cardstock is lifted off the card with dimensionals.

To create the “sweet birthday” oval tag I stamped with the Strawberry Slush and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder mixed with a touch of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Then clipping it out was super fast and easy with the oval punch.
