How to Make a Cardstock Strip Candle Card

Kate took out her strips dies (but you could cut them on a trimmer or free-hand) and cut out several strips in both 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch sizes.  She owns a flame die, but you could easily cut the flames free-hand as well.  You could even search through your die stash for a bird wing or leaf die that resembles a flame.
