I've been running low on birthday cards so I thought I'd ramp up my supply using some dies from Dies R Us. And since there's a new challenge starting today, this is the perfect opportunity to share what I made:
I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Birthday Candles and Banners to create a couple of quick and easy cards.
I cut the base of the candles out of white cardstock and added the top layers, cut from pastel colors. I heat embossed the curvy banner with white embossing powder and popped it up over the candles with pop dots while gluing the tails of the banners directly on to the paper to add dimension.
This card uses the straight banner. I like this banner set as it comes with four different banner styles so there's always one that works for what I need.
I hope you'll visit the DRU Challenge blog to see more inspiration from our amazing design team and join in on the fun. While you're there, be sure to sign up for their newsletter so you can be one of the first to be notified of their special order events.
