Good morning! Here is a similar card to yesterday but with different words.
Good morning and happy new year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. 🥳
The two cards today show different ways to color the EE53 skinny candles. One of our favorites is a gradient and the other is to add stripes/dots. With both, we start with the lightest color marker and then add the darker color. White paper is dull gloss. The pink striped background paper is from a paper pack. The green striped background we created using the HH28 dots and lines border stamp.
Here is a quick card! Cut out the center with a scallop die and stamped the words on the back paper in the center. Distressed with an ink pad all around the top paper. Stamped and colored the candles on the bottom. Then used pop up dots to attach to the card. Just need a scored card and 2 pieces of 4×5.25″ white paper. I haven’t added an insert to this card yet but will probably add a happy birthday to the inside at some point.
For this card, the alcohol inks had some funky color combinations that came by accident. Maybe it is just me, but I like them! Wanted to add some more interest with the inside insert so added the candles and the wish big stamped on a kraft sticker.
Hope everyone is doing well! Glad for technology to stay in touch with loved ones. Anyone getting creative with the food in their pantry? Recipe ideas welcome!
We are still traveling and will be making it home later today. Love traveling but it sure is good to get home too. Whew! Especially after being in the car for so many hours. Here is a quick simple card with the EE53 candles. Copic markers used: R32 Peach, YR15 Pumpkin Yellow, BV13 Hydrangea Blue (looks purple to me), BG01 Aqua Blue
