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.
