Happy Birthday to my sweet friend.

The card that i am showing today is what i made for my sweet friend Tracy… it was her birthday yesterday.. :)

I decided to use one of my new hanglar images for her card as she has started to make what i call Proper cakes.. … not out of a packet!!!! hehe.. bless i am a terrible tease..  but she knows that i love her to bits..

I coloured the image with copic markers… surprise surprise..







I also wanted to make one of the candle holding cards that i have seen all around  blog world… the template that i found was here… but when i tried to make it.. my tea light candles wouldn’t fit in the space so i set to making my own sized card along the same lines as the template… but seeing as i was altering the sizing i thought that i would also alter the style of the card by making the holder for the candle sit along the bottom of the card and to also add ends to the holder so that i didn’t have to add the ribbon to hold the candles in place… hope this makes sense as i am rambling again… hehe.

this is what i mean when i said that i wanted to add ends… rofl..

well this is the card that i ended up with….. my poor brain doesn’t do measurments and this was a real job trying to work out the different sizes that i need to make the card work from a A3 piece of card stock… talk about headache… but once the sizes was worked out it went together really well.. and the little box along the bottom holds 4 Yankee candle scented tea light candles wonderfully so i was a happy bunny. :)

i used some magnolia papers and sentiment stamps from catslife press and cc designs. The friend die cuts were from quickutz rainbow classic alphabet set.

Thanks for dropping by enjoy the rest of your day…
