Tea Light Birthday Cake
It is simple to make, I created this one on my own and then discovered a tutorial on splitcoaststampers after. My design is a bit different I did want a clean circle around the flame.
The side is a strip of designer series paper. The top is two parts, the first being the 1-3/4" scallop circle with a 3/4" circle punched out of the center. Attach this piece to the top. Then I took a 2" x 2" piece of card stock and punched a circle using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (118309). That is where the "flame" will fit. I then took the 1-3/8" circle punch and punched around the tiny circle, your piece will look like a washer. I slid this circle over the flame and attached it to the scallop. I tried to mask the seam with the red glitter but it isn't necessary.
And look, it even lights up! Love it! The base is the 2-3/8" scallop circle. To be sure it is sturdy I layered a piece of the dsp cardboard backing under my card stock. There is a switch on the bottom for the light and I just used the Itty Bitty circle punch there again. To get it placed right I made a quick template with printer paper.
Paper: real red patterns dsp; real red and pool party cardstock
Accessories: 2-3/8" scallop punch, 1-3/4" scallop punch, 1-3/8" scallop circle, itty bitty shapes punches; red fine galaxy glitter and basic rhinestones
