Need a fun idea for a milestone birthday card?? I think you’ll love this idea with 75 and 50 candles!!
Be sure to WATCH THE VIDEO at the bottom of my post today to see how I made them!
I made these cards for Joy and Marcee and they loved them!! They are so fun to open and unfold and unfold and unfold!! 🙂
I settled on candles that were 1/2″ x 3″ cut from a variety of Stampin’ Up! designer papers, and found that 8 fit perfectly on a 1/2 sheet of cardstock, so 16 fit on the 4-1/4″ x 11″ card. I hinged the card bases together with designer paper – see the video for those details.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to use for the flames, and found the little wing on the Songbirds Builder punch was PERFECT!! Thank goodness because I didn’t really look forward to the idea of die cutting that many flames!! 🙂
I have several Milestone birthdays to make cards for this year, and I had the idea in my mind to create lots of candles for each card, then I saw an idea on Instagram shared by “didyoustamptoday” and knew exactly how I wanted to make these cards. Thanks for the awesome inspiration!!
