Hello blog friends! Today, I’m sharing a Foiled Candle Birthday Card that features NEW 3D Foam Strips. They are 1/8-inch strips of 3D Foam with permanent double-sided adhesive. Can you see where I’m using them?
The three strips of the 3D Foam Strips make the foiled candle. Simply cut the strips to size and apply blue foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors to make a shiny candle! And the flame, that’s a leaf shape from 3D Foam Leaves that I covered with Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors!
Making the Layers of the Card Base
To make this card, I stamp stars on a gray card base. For the card panel, attach patterned paper to a white mat and then to the card base with E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser.
To make the blue foiled mat, apply Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch on one side of a piece of white cardstock. Die-cut the cardstock into a rectangle shape. With the blue foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Variety Colors, foil the outside edges colored side up, rub with your fingertips to transfer the color, and remove the foil sheet. Reapply as needed.
For the next layer, die-cut a smaller frame rectangle shape with white cardstock and rub the front with gray ink to color it.
Using the gray rectangle frame as a guide, cut a piece of white cardstock to fit behind the opening. Stamp a grid pattern and stars with gray ink.
Using the E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser on the back edges of the stamped cardstock and center on top of the foiled layer. The exposed Adhesive Sheet in the foiled layer will help secure in the center.
Finally, use the new 3D Foam Strips on the back of the gray frame and center it on the card front. It’s perfect to add dimension to a narrow frame like this!
Add the Foiled Candle
Now the fun part, adding the candle! Carefully peel three strips of the 3D Foam Strips together off the sheet and cut to length. Place them on the card front on top of the stamped white cardstock, remove the liner and foil with the blue foil, colored side up and rub to transfer. To add the flame, add the leaf shape from the 3D Foam Leaves, remove the top liner and foil with the gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors using the same steps as above. See how easy it is to make a foiled candle?
Completing the Card
To match the layered card panel, stamp the same grid pattern on white cardstock for verse piece and edge it with gray ink. After the ink dries, stamp It’s Your Special Day! in black ink and clear heat emboss it. Stamp a grey star as well. To make the foil borders at the top and the bottom, add Premium Double-Sided Tape ⅛-inch, remove the liner and cover with blue foil. Pop it up on the card with 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
For the Make a Wish sentiment, stamp on a scrap piece of white cardstock with black ink and clear heat emboss. First fussy cut around it. Then create a foiled mat by adding a piece of Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch to another piece of scrap white cardstock, peel the liner off and cover it with the blue foil. Attach the Make a Wish sentiment to the foiled piece with E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Fussy cut around edges.
Designer’s Tip: use a blue marker to color edges.
Then fastened to the card front with 3D Foam Squares White Mix and you are done with the Foiled Candle Birthday Card! This bright card is a great masculine birthday card. Change the colors of foil and paper to make it appropriate for any birthday.
