MCT 22nd Edition Release Blog Hop: Happy First 29th Birthday!

by Veronica

Well, hello there and Happy New Year (almost)! Welcome to the My Creative Time 22nd Edition Release Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Tracy's blog, you're headed in the right direction. If not, head on over the Emma's blog to start this Hop from the very beginning.

My BFF, Stephanie, will be celebrating a BIG birthday in January. No, she's not turning 30 - she's turning ALMOST 30!!! I've decided that instead of her EVER turning 30, we'll just celebrate the anniversary of her 29th birthday every year. So this year will be her first ever 29th birthday.

This cute little card is 4" square and uses very simple layering to achieve a bold effect. Here's a quick little cheat sheet on the stamps I used:

Happy, "TH", and banner die: Chocolate Greetings (the "TH" was masked using the "BIRTHDAY" stamp)
FIRST: Label Font
29: Circle Font
BIRTHDAY: Vintage Sentiments

Most of the layers were popped up, and I hand-cut the candle and flame. I used my white gel pen to make the stripes on the candle and my Copics to color in the flame. I then glittered the flame with Star Dust Stickles.
