Christmas Blessings Candle

I think Pinterest is the biggest "enabler" around for crafty goodness, don't you? So many beautiful cards, so many new products, that I just want them all!!!

Thankfully, my pocketbook keeps me in check :-)

But when I saw a card made with this lovely Memory Box die - called Tall Tapered Candle - I couldn't resist purchasing it!


I had a holiday table centerpiece in mind while putting my card together, so had to hunt in my stash of dies for the appropriate die cuts to place at it's bottom. This is what I came up with:

The Tall Tapered Candle was cut from a pearlescent white cardstock. I left the "ribbon" section empty, but re-added the pearlescent pieces for the candle sections. I used Stampin' Up's Old Olive cardstock to cut the Memory Box Glowing Candles die (see below), then I proceeded to cut off the candle sections so that I was left only with the leaf & sprig sections:

The wee poinsettia die cuts were added using Poppystamps Small Blooming Poinsettias die set - the perfect size. 3 white pearls were added to their centres (3 mm & 4mm sizes).

The sentiment was heat embossed in gold using PTI's Signature Christmas stamp set, which matches the glittery gold cardstock I paper pieced into the candle's flame.

Hope you have a fabulous day - thanks for popping in!
