Seize the Birthday - Candles

Hello again! 

I have one more card to share today, as it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday
The Toppings option for this time is CANDLES

I made a card with candles but you may enter any newly created birthday card, if you don't want to take our Topping.

My card is a shaker card with six shaker candles.

I started off by making a cutting file for the candles and cut them from a pink cardstock with my Cricut. To create the background I marked the position of the candles on a separate white cardstock and blended DIs in rainbow colors on the area for the candles along with masking. To make the candle flames I adhered double sided tape and rubbed yellow and orange glitter on it. The sentiment from SSS was stamped in purple on the front panel. I then started assembling the shaker card. I used small beads in the same color like the background as shaker elements. For more interest I drew stripes on the candles using a white glaze pen.

That's it from my side. Hope you hop over to the Seize the Birthday to get more inspiration from my team mates and our surprise party guest, Kristie Goulet! And don't forget to play along!!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Have a great day!

What a great idea to have each candle as a shaker, and I adore the glittery flame on them. A fabulous design TaeEun. x

I have trouble with one shaker element and you have 6, TaeEun. It must have taken a while but so worth it. This is such a wonder-filled card.
