Have those January birthday’s crept up on you? You’re only just over Christmas yet those January celebrations are looming? Here’s a quick and easy card!


First of all, grab a birthday cake shaped card, or maybe cut one out of your scan and cut! Shaped cards are still very popular and can be found easily in packs of 5 or cut it out by hand.

 Next, grab a die that’s a great background. I’ve used my favourite ever birthday die from Tattered Lace which I think works really well here!

 I wanted to make be candles look lit, but I am rubbish at colouring and wanted a bit of sparkle! I used rhinestones here.


Last of all, I wanted the candles to stand out so I used some chevron style washi tape, this particular one is from La-de-Dah.
