My husband’s birthday is this coming Monday so I decided to make him a card. I had seen this pop up card on a blog and thought I would give it a try. Of course my stamping skills and color choices still have a lot to be desired, but I think the more I try the better I will get at doing this. So, here it is…
I stamped My Love all over in red and then used my candle stamp across the front. I also added blue ribbon and little brass brads to the corners. I then distressed the candle part and the bottom below the scallop with gold rub paste and I roughed up the candle part by scraping it a bit.
On the inside I stamped some hearts at the bottom and top and then stamped candles, colored them and cut and placed them on each tier. You can’t see it in the photo’s but the flames have glitter on them.
Here is a side view of the little pop out steps. I also stamped the red hearts inside before assembly.
I give myself a B+ on this card. It isn’t perfect and it took me an hour and a half to finish, but it was made with love for my hubby! Not too shabby for my first greeting card…that is… totally out of my imagination.
