Card of the Week: Happy Birthday Candles

August 20, 2012

This week's Card of the Week is a birthday card that never goes out of style: the Happy Birthday Candles card

When I was creating my first collection of birthday cards, I wanted a card that was cheerful, fun, and could work for both genders and pretty much any age. I also knew that I wanted to design a card that featured candles. I began hand drawing a number of little candles and decided that I preferred them scattered rather than in a uniform pattern. I also like how each candle is a little different from the next one.

I played around with different colors and used a mix of bright and bold colors with some lighter and muted pastels. What resulted was a bright and cheery card that showcases Happy Cactus' hand drawn style and love of color. Shop the Happy Birthday Candles card here!
