A friend of mine is turning 30 in a few weeks so I made this card to give him.
The card is 5"x7" and made from a suede colored cardstock. I cut some green polka dotted paper at 4 3/4"x5 3/4" and added it to the card base. I cut some white cardstock at 3 1/4"x5 1/2" and stamped my candles on it. The candles and their faces are both stamps by Peachy Keen. I then paper pieced the colors onto the white cardstock. I used some foam tape to pop up the last candle. I added glossy accents to the top part of the candle to make it look more like melted wax. I matted the white cardstock with three mats. The green polka dotted mat is cut at 3 3/4"x6," the tan mat is cut at 4"x6 1/4" and the final white mat is cut at 4 1/8"x6 3/8." I added it to the card, which left enough space on the bottom for my sentiment. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
I also finished the inside of this card. I cut some white cardstock at 4"x6," then some tan cardstock at 3 3/4"x5 3/4." I then cut some suede cardstock at 3 1/4"x5 1/4" and more of the green polka dotted paper at 3"x5." Finally, I cut some white cardstock at 2 1/4"x4 1/4." I used a Fiskars stamp for the "happy" and "birthday" part of the sentiment and a stamp from the "Chuny Alphabet" by My Craft Spot for the "30" part of the sentiment.
