It's the little things........

I totally fell in love with the teeny tiny candy die from the latest Waffle Flower Crafts release - it's such a fun little thing so I thought I'd have a go at making it the star of my card.

I thought it would look really fun to have rainbow of candles covering the card front so I set about cutting out a LOT of candles using the bright rainbow papers from MFT's Graphic Grid papers to which I added stick-it prior to cutting to make it super easy to apply all those candles!  I cut 6 of each colour and had 3 rows of candles on a panel I cut with stitched rectangle dies

I wanted to pair it with the fun new birthday sentiment set also by Waffle Flower Crafts called "eat cake".   I embossed the eat cake today in gold powder onto a strip of vellum folded behind the panel.  I know sticking vellum can sometimes be tricky, but if you totally cover your strip with stick-it the glue isn't visible when you adhere it to the card.

I decided to use the other sentiment in the same set on the inside of the card and thought a few more candles would work there too.  I think we sometimes forget we can stamp on the inside as well!

I used the gold embossing powder again for the sentiment and just added a few candles to either side.

You could do similar card with other tiny dies - lots of tiny hearts for a wedding or anniversary, or even rows of tiny stars or circles - why not check out your stash and get sticking!


There will be quite a lot of new releases this month:

  • Our Neat and Tangled shipment is in transit - we hope to have those in store by Tuesday.
  • There is a new Reverse Confetti release tomorrow but we have yet to get our delivery but again, customs willing, we will have it mid-week.
  • We received one of 3 boxes of our Altenew restock delivery but sadly the other 2 are still stuck in customs - again we hope they will clear tomorrow and we'll have them mid-week.  We will put it all live when the rest arrives.
  • We have had our delivery of stamping platforms from Tonic so will get them online shortly with some other restocks.
  • Avery Elle have a new release on the 11th May and our order is in transit so hopefully we'll have that on release day.
  • Mama Elephant have another super cute release on the 15th
  • Lawn Fawn also have a new release this month - their sneaks start on their blog on the 10th and the release is on the 18th.  Our order is in and we normally get that just ahead of release but it has yet to ship. 
  • Concord and 9th have another release on the 9th (the clue is in their name lol!) but as always, our delivery from them never ships until a few days after they release so we won't have that until later in the month.  We will have more triangles coming with it though!


  1. More C&9th triangles, yay! Can't wait. Loving this fun, colourful card! The rows of candles are so fab and looking very stylish with the vellum sentiment.

  2. Gorgeous card - love this little die and you have used it to perfection! xxx
