Wow! So Many Candles.....

Wow! So Many Candles.....
Made this card for my manager who share same birth date of the colleague I made the mini card earlier. My manager should have reach the retirement age but he is still strong and likes to run marathon! Salute to him!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #209
I adopt the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #209 as shown above by rotating it counter clockwise as I decided to participate in Loves Rubberstamps Challenge 63 - Skinny Cards - 4"x9".

It is a simple sketch where a green card stock is trimmed accordingly and attached onto a blue card base. Then, a polka dots pattern paper is trimmed and attached onto a green panel.

Close-up : The candles
The candles are stamped onto the white card stock. Five (5) candles are stamped on the first row and six (6) candles are stamped on the second row to represent his age, 56 (hopefully I guesses his age right! :P). The candles are colored, first row in blue and second row in red to differentiate. It is then distressed on the edges before attaching onto the card as in sketch.

Close-up : The postage frame
The postage frame is die cut and the edges are distressed as well. It is attached to the card using pop dots to create dimension.

Close-up : Sentiment
The sentiment is stamped onto a white circle. The circle is distressed as well before attaching onto the card as in sketch using pop dots to create dimension.

Wow! So Many Candles..... - Inside
Inside the card, another sentiment is stamped directly onto the card, just to add some spice to the card. ;)

Dimension : 10.16cm x 22.86cm or 4" x 9"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None with stamped sentiment
