Candle box/card

Hello my friends!  There is a bit over 11 months until next Christmas. It's right time to start with Christmas cards :) Actually I made it last year. It's a card and a tea light candle box in one. It's super easy to make and is lovely gift to give

Candle box holds three tea light candles. I used two coordinating pattern papers to decorate my box and card. Wisteria EP is used to heat emboss flourishes from Flourishes Two stamp set to the pattern papers. Edges of the papers are inked with Faded Jeans Distress ink. I pierced tiny holes near the edges and draw lines between them with white gel pen to make faux stitches.

All sentiments are stamped with Versamark ink and sentiment stamps from Holiday Foliage stamp set. After stamping I covered sentiments with Silver Detail EP and heat embossed them. Sentiments are die-cut with oval die from SB Radiant Rectangle set. While die cut piece was still in the die I dry-embossed it and inked inside of the oval with Milled Lavender and Faded Jeans Distress inks. I applied less ink to the center and more to the edges. I needed three ovals in total. One empty oval is for place to write something personal for receiver.

Rolled flower and Scalloped ovals are cut with my new Silhouette Portrait. I added some leaves made with SB Foliage and Memory Box Fabulous Phlox dies. Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourishdie cut is inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP. After that I cut it in pieces and used it in various places.

To the corners of the acetate window  I added some Brushable Glue and sprinkled Diamond Dust glitter on top.
