Today's card has glitter!
This card was totally scraplifted from Lawn Fawn's 07/09/12 blog post. When I saw Chari's card, I knew I had to make one ... and Melisa, conveniently, was having a birthday! So, she got a glittery candle border card.
I recently purchased a pack of cards & envelopes from a big box store, for super cheap (8 cards & envelopes in the dollar bin!). So, I decided to use one of those. I used the one with the scalloped edge. I layered a blue panel over most of the front of the card, and left the scalloped border. I also ran a thin strip of the same cardstock color on the inside bottom of the card to help accent the scallop.
To decorate the card, I used Lawn Fawn's Chevron Backdrops and versa mark inked the cardstock panel with the thin chevron border. I stamped "happy" with Quinns ABCs and filled in each letter with blue glitter glue. I also stamped "birthday" from Sophie's Sentiments. Then, stamped a string of colored candles from Bake Me a Cake set.
I topped off the card, just like Chari, with a cute little party hat from Hats Off to You collection.
This was a really fun card and I hope Melisa enjoys it and has a wonderful birthday!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
