Candle Birthday Wishes

Hi there,

Today I'd like to share with you a card that I made using two of the new fun Tonic Invite Dies: Celebration Candles and Happy Birthday.

I die cut the Celebration Candles from white cardstock twice and colored them with all three sets of the new Nuvo Glitter Markers. This gave the candles a nice sparkly appearance.

Nuvo Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops were added for the flames. The two candle pieces were set aside to dry, while I worked on the shaker portion.

I die cut the Happy Birthday from the center of a piece of black cardstock.

A piece of tulle was taped down with 1/4" Tearific Tape behind the Happy Birthday and then I made a "well" for my shaker with mounting tape. Shaved Ice was put into the well. The taped area was then covered with white cardstock.

The candle pieces were glued on to the top and bottom of the front panel with the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. This has a fine applicator so was great for just running along the backs of the candles.

The front panel was layered to white cardstock and then to a black card base to finish off my card for today.

Hope you've enjoyed my share today. Below is a list of the products that I used that can be found on the SNS website:
