It's a Wrap

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Hello. So glad you joined me.

I have been enjoying making cards to match gift bags lately, so when I saw this challenge, I had the perfect idea. I went and found some gift bags that I wanted to use, and make cards to go with them.

I started with my favorite bag and am making a card by using Simon Says Stamp "Make Your Mark" stamp set to stamp the candles at the bottom of a Neenah Solar White cardstock panel in different colors of Stampin' Up! inks. 

Then I used Copic markers to add some stripes and polka dots to some of the candles. I also used a white jelly pen to add details on the candles.

I put double sided adhesive on the back of some gold glitter paper and used from Altenew "Mini Blossoms" dies and W Plus 9 "Southern Summer Floral 2" dies and cut leaves from it. And then cut some of the edges with some little craft scissors to vary them so they all did not look the same. I adhered them to the panel and then took a black Copic Multiliner pen to draw the wick between the flame and the candle.

I drew a line in pencil where I wanted to write Happy Birthday, and then wrote it in pencil first and then with the Copic Multiliner pen.

I masked off the Happy Birthday with some Post it masking tape. Then I took Tonic "Beautiful Bokeh Essential Stencil" and taped in on top of the panel. I spread Ranger Distress Collage Medium Matte over the stencil where I wanted it, and then removed the stencil and added gold glitter to the panel. I then made sure to clean the stencil so the glue did not dry on it.

I adhered the panel when everything was dry to a white card base.

I hope this gives you lots of fun ideas as well.
