The Paper Players Challenge-PP62

Birthday Cards.........add to your stash this week by joining The Paper Players Challenge!

I've seen this a few times on other demo's blogs and wanted to try. I think I first spotted this idea on Carrie Gaskin's blog. These are actual candles that I covered with "Just Add Cake Designer Paper":

How cute is that huh? I used Sticky Strip and just rolled my candles. The decorative matching trim at the bottom was created with my Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim Die. Quick & Cute!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: So Saffron, Pacific Point, Whisper White
  • DSP:Just Add Cake
  • Accessories: Taffeta Ribbon in Whisper White, In Color Designer Printed Brads
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Ovals Die, Tasteful Trim Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
  • Stamp Set: Bring on the Cake
  • Inks: Wild Wasabi
  • Misc: Birthday Candles
