40 Candles

I made this card for a friend at work who turned 40.  The front of the card I ran the green through the embossing machine and finished with sticker 'Happy 40th Birthday'

I made one of these cards for my SIL a couple of years ago when she turned 50 and just thought it was the right card for my friend.  So I cut forty strips of paper from my Stampin Up collection of papers.  I used theses papers as I knew they would all work well together.  I attached the strips then stamped the flame with a shape I had cut from foam.  I stamped first in a yellow colour and then added orange to some of the flames.

I layered up some white card to the rear of the card so I could add a verse etc.

Thanks for stopping by.
