Light the Candle


It's Anja again. December is here. All the lights are out and slowly Christmas spirit is starting to feel.
Can't believe how fast this year ran by.

As we light the first candle in our Advent wreath, I wanted to use the candle as my main motive today. And this is what I came up with.

For this card I used:
-  Cottage Cutz dies (Country Candles, Pierced Square Set),
- Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Black Soot, Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass),
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- craft paper for die cuts,
- silver card stock for background (14,5x14,5 cm and 8,5x8,5 cm),
- patterned paper for background (14x14 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- white pigment ink,
- glossy accent,
- adhesive foam pads,
- paper glue.

First I cut all the pieces and colored it. I cut more greenery.

The I cut all the elements for the background. I used second largest square die.

I cut other background elements out of silver and patterned paper.

I used adhesive foam pads for the smaller squares.

I used a bit ow white pigment ink to make the glow.

And then I just arranged and glued the candle and the greenery on the card. I used glossy accent for the red berries and my card was finished.

Before I go I just want to remind you that there are some new dies available in the store. Go and check it out.

I'll be back next Sunday. Have a wonderful day and the whole week.
