This is a great versatile birthday design as it can be used for a range of ages. You can also use the lilac candle background paper together with the matching motifs on the free downloadable.

An A6 hammer white card blank has been used here. Print the blue candle background onto hammer white paper and cut a 9cm piece to fit the front of the card blank. Stick with double-sided tape. Cut a 10.3 x 1.5cm piece of blue corrugated card and finish one edge with fancy scissors. Stick it to the card blank with d-s tape.

Print this onto hammer white card. Cut out one of the 6.5cm wide candle motifs with a trimmer or cutting knife and ruler. Stick it to a larger piece of silver metallic card with double-sided tape and then trim it to leave a 2-3mm border. Apply sticky pads (or fun foam and double-sided tape) to the back of the motif, leaving the bottom centimetre free so that it sits over the corrugated card nicely. Press it into place. Such a simple and versatile design - try making a few so you've always got that last minute card available!
