Crazy Card Party Challenge #1 - Celebration

I am so excited to be a part of a new Challenge Blog called "Crazy Card Party" with a bunch of my very cool friends who decided they wanted to keep the momentum of creating going by starting a challenge blog! 
For the first challenge I wanted my card to really reflect the 1st post of the Challenge Blog so I decided to create a #1 Shaped Candle Card!  I used my Cricut Expression to create the following card:

  1. From White cardstock cut 2 of the #1 on Page 65 of the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge at 5”
  2. Cut another # 1 from the Patterned Paper and trim the candle flame from the candle
  3. Cut another  #1 from the Yellow Cardstock.
  4. Score one of the white cuts 1 ¾” from the top and glue the top portion to the other white cut to create the card base.
  5. Using the cuttlebug & the PTI Tiny Tags Die cut a small tag from white cardstock and apply “Life is good sticker").
  6. Stamp “Let’s Celebrate” using Black ink on white cardstock and cut out like a banner shape, then ink edges in pink ink.
  7. Glue the yellow candle cut to the front of the card base.
  8. Tie a Pink bow around the patterned paper candle, using green  twine attach a blue button and the small tag to the bow.  Add the flower sticker and some bling to the button.
  9. Attach sentiment banner and pop dot the patterned candle to the front of the card base.
  10. Add some Yellow Stickles to the flame on the candle.
