I'm over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today
to share a Christmas Card I created combining
dies from Memory Box and Precious Marieke.
If you've not checked out the products available at
you need to!
I gathered my materials to include the 4 die sets I used
plus a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base, patterned paper,
a blue matte metallic card stock, green metallic card stock,
white card stock and some iridescent glitter glue.
Next, I did my die cutting.
I cut the frame and sentiment out of the blue card stock.
I cut the candle die 3 times, using the white, blue and green card stocks.
I cut 1 large flower, 3 medium and small flowers.
I assembled the candles using the white die cut as a base
and adhered the blue next. With the green, I snipped off the
candle portion, just leaving the foliage and
adhered to the blue layer. I ended up coloring the
flames of the candles with gold glitter gel pen.
I then layered the flowers, making 1 large and 2 medium sized,
using brads with gem centers.
I added some glitter glue to the flowers of a little sparkle.
Next, I assembled the card base by matting the patterned paper
with the blue matte metallic card stock and adhering to the card base.
Next I added the frame to the background
and layered the candles on the bottom edge.
I added the flowers to the candle foliage
and lastly, cut and matted a thin strip
of white card stock, adhered the sentiment
and applied to the lower portion of the card.
