Pretty Candles

The Card Concept #145 {Festive Celebration}

I am down to making the last three Christmas cards and I chose to do another of the side folds I had done weeks ago. Using some PP from my Reminisce package and some dark gray CS I cut and scored the card and then added the PP. I notched the top and bottom of the side part and tied some gold twine around it. Using a GKD die set I cut a small stitched frame rectangle out of gold foil and adhered onto main section. From the same set I cut some candle pieces in different scrap papers and added the flames in a different gold foil. Then I die cut the foliage using Sissix dies and glued it strategically at the bottom of the frame and candles. I added some berries and a sentiment (from CTMH) that I had stamped a while ago and not used and to which I added some gold sparkle with a pen.

I am uncertain of how to classify the style as it fits several on the Card Concept list, but to me it is more Shabby, Chic and vintage but could also fit into the Mixed Media as well. In addition it could fit the Freestyle collage. I leave it to you to decide which you believe it fits best. It does look much better in reality than on the photo.

  1. Thanks Lisa and you are right it is the same fold. I did a few earlier but they were slightly different in design to this one.


    1. The tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers explains it the best in my opinion. Glad you like it. When I did the first ones the instructions I followed were not a easy to follow as this one.


  2. LOL…we must be on the same wavelength, Johanna. The card I just posted to my buddies blog uses the same fold. Love your take on the sketch and that gold patterned paper showcasing your candles turned out beautifully.

  3. I find that often happens when people are friends. We seem to get the same kind of ideas. Haven’t checked the buddies blog this week so must do so in a minute. Glad you like my effort.


  4. Thanks my friend, It has already been delivered to recipient as she lives on my street and I hand deliver to my neighbors.
