Christmas Candle

Good evening everyone!

Today we will go through a Christmas Card....its a teabag design and to be honest in class last week the ladies had their choice of 4 different teabag designs – everyone seems to go for anything purple and most avoid anything to do with Christmas...

But I enjoyed making this one up and so did my friend who also opted for this design but changed the layout to suit herself.

So the sheet was from and was designed by Dawn Hill, the sheet number should you wish to purchase it is 246390_351

The sheet comes with the base image, a little 3d decoupage and 8 teabag tiles.

I printed direct to my 128gsm matt photo paper which worked well with the image and the teabag folding.

I used an A4 sheet of white card, added a piece of green Christmas themed paper to the bottom 2/3rds of the card then glued the base image to the upper part of the card.

Added the 2 pieces of decoupage and then started the basic fold of the tiles. Once all 8 were folded I made my medallion and popped a pretty pearl brad through the centre. I used a strong glue to attach the medallion to the upper corner of the card.

As I was left with a big space at the bottom of the card I used a lovely Christmas sentiment it was in rich red with gold text and I believe its from HunkyDory

To decorate the card I added a few tiny red gems as berries on the holly and used glossy accents on the candle and just a small sprinkling of glitter around the card.

Three slightly bigger coloured pearls were stuck to the top left corner to finish
Not the most exciting card but I was pleased with it and its 1 less to do at Christmas.

Thank you for popping by again...
