Sparkling Candlelight

Hello, Shirley posting today! Wow can you believe that Thanksgiving is here already? This month has flew by way too fast.

I sure have a lot to do to prepare for our Christmas celebration.  I am happy that I have so many Christmas cards made, and today I am showing you the latest one I have made.  It is my newest favorite Christmas card.

I used a black card base layered with white card stock, followed with red foil paper from the Foil Paper - Textured Patterns 1 package. I adhered the white and red layer to the card base.

I cut a gold scallop circle and followed with a black circle with dot embossing. I used white card stock  and the Memory Box Pillar Box Candle Trio die to cut the candles. I repeated this step again only using red foil paper. I took the negative pieces and filled in the white candle outline.   I used Art Institute Clear Adhesive to glue the candles on the black circle. I then adhered this circle to the gold scalloped circle and adhered it to the red foil.

I used the Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment I chose said, "Wishing you a very Merry Christmas".  It was too big for the space for my sentiment, so I used tape to cover the words I did not want to use, and stamped the Merry Christmas on white card stock.  I used an oval scalloped punch on black card stock to put behind the sentiment.

I used a die from my collection to cut the gold paper for the sentiment.  I adhered these pieces together and placed them on the card.  I finished my card by adding the glitter dots that I have had in my stash for quite some time.  I had actually forgotten about them so I was happy I ran across them, they were perfect for this card.

Thank you, for coming by to look at my card.  Tune in again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team!
