Pop Up Hybrid Birthday Card for Jack

This card all came about 'cos I wanted to use the candles sentiment from the SU! Whimsical Words set. I have a candles stamp but the thought of repeatedly stamping with a positioner and colouring in didn't appeal very much right now with my lack of stamping mojo! Hero Arts had a video on their blog this week showing how to use digital images with Microsoft Word so I checked out their digi images and found the candles. It was so easy to resize and copy and paste in duplicates that I had this printed out in a jiffy. I did feel like I was cheating a bit though LOL!

The card is A2 size. I took the colour scheme from the candles, opting for Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and a touch of Real Red. I've added yellow Stickles to the flames to add some sparkle and the candles panel is popped up. To finish off the front, I added two rows of punched stars.



Then I decorated the inside with a pop up gift, punched stars and a die cut sentiment. This will be sent to our friend Jack for his birthday next week, hope he likes it!

Stamps: SU! Whimsical Words set, candles image from Hero Arts Candles Digi Kit

Great card! Thanks for the inspiration--I'm off to get that candle digi image, as I, too, hate lining up all those candles....
