MCT 35th Edition Sneak Peek #1: Wish Big Candle Card

by Veronica

Welcome, welcome to another Release Week with My Creative Time! We're kicking this week off with a sneak peek of Fun Vertical Greetings. This stamp set coordinates well with the Embossed Gift Card Holder Die, but I've used it on a card here.


I stamped the "Wish Big" sentiment from the new set onto the birthday candles that I fashioned using two dies that weren't originally created to be candles. It's so fun to look at dies in a new way!

The candle base was created using the medium Stitched Decorative Banner Die. I extended the die to allow for the sentiment to fit. (There's an easy-to-follow video made by another crafter on extending dies here.)

The flame was created with the ornament die from Warm Holiday Fun. I cut it out in white and colored it with my Copics.
