F un birthday card using some retiring accessories from Stampin' Up!
Cut card stock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Emerald Envy Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 1/2" x 1-3/4" from Peekaboo Peach Card Stock
- 1-1/4" x 1-3/4" of multi-colored dots on Blushing Bride background design from Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack
Pick out the block of candles thinlit from the Window Box Thinlits. Place the Whisper White rectangle on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the block of candles thinlit on top so it is centered from side to side and about 1/4" from the top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Mount the image that reads "HAPPY" in brushstroke looking letters from the Happy Celebrations Photopolymer Set on Block I. Ink it up with the Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the bottom of the white rectangle about 1/2" up from the bottom.
Mount the image that reads "HAPPY" in solid letters from the Happy Celebrations Photopolymer Set on Block I. Ink it up with the Blushing Bride Ink Pad. Stamp it over the previously stamped word.
Mount the "birthday to you" sentiment from the Happy Celebrations Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Emerald Envy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the word happy along the bottom edge. Let it overlap a bit.
Tear off a 4-3/4" strip of multi-colored dots on a white background of washi tape from the Playful Palette Designer Washi Tape. Adhere the washi tape between the stamped sentiment and the bottom of the candles cut out.
Flip the white rectangle over and put some SNAIL Adhesive around the edges of the candles cut out.
Adhere the small strip of Peekaboo Peach Card Stock to the back of the white rectangle so the peach color will show through the candle flames on the front.
Adhere the small piece of Playful Palette Designer Series Paper to the back so the dotted pink side will show through the candle cut outs on the front.
Add more SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the white rectangle and adhere it to the front of the Emerald Envy card.

Cut a 7" piece of Emerald Envy Solid Baker's Twine.
Tie the baker's twine to the center of the sequin trim piece using a small bow. Trim the ends of the baker's twine and pull a few sequins off the bottoms of the sequin trim.
Adhere the baker's twine/sequin trim piece to the upper right side of the piece of washi tape using a Mini Glue Dot.
