My little nephew turns 3 this week. I made a quick card for him with 3 candles in boyish colors. I used an 8.5×11 sheet of dark blue cardstock folded in half for the base of the card. On top of that is a half sheet of white trimmed to show 1/4 inch of blue. The candles are each 5.5×1 inch. The flames were cut free-hand. The Happy birthday was printed in dark blue on white paper and placed on a piece of the same orange that was used for the flames. If I had an appropriate embossing folder I would have used that on the white to make the background more interesting. Since I did not have one, I left it plain.
