Five Big Candles

This is another masculine birthday card made with a Silhouette Designs called Sarah Bailey Candles.  The design has two layers to the candles, a solid base layer and a top layer with different graphic shape cutouts.  The base layer was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock and the top layer for scraps of colored cardstock.  All were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  The larger candles are solid elements, even with the cutouts, but the two smaller candles are small stripes.  In order to not have to individually glue each stripe to the base candle Press ‘n Seal was used to lift them from the cutting mat.  This allowed all of the stripes to be glued and adhered together.  Each candled was assembled and glued together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  The word happy from WPlus9 Happy Trio Die was cut from the mirror cardstock.

To assemble the card a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was cut using the rectangle from WPlus9 Gift Card Layers.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller and adhered to the back.  The rectangle was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the candles, which were then adhered to the upper two-thirds of the card.

The sentiment was die cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock using the WPlus9 Happy Trio Die.  It was placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment is from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The die cut word was then adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.
