Die-cut out of Mint Julep cardstock one candle and out of Sorbet cardstock one candle flame from the Birthday Candles die set.
- Die-cut out of white cardstock the letters “O N E” three times each from the Bold Alphabet die set. Stack each letter and adhere them together with liquid adhesive to create a dimensional sentiment element.
