Christmas Candles

Good Monday Morning!  I did manage to find some crafting time this past weekend and I worked on my personal stash of Christmas Cards.  From now until Christmas, I will be sharing what I've come up with.

Today's share is the Christmas Candles card.  I've been coloring a lot lately for Design Team projects and I'd forgotten how satisfying paper piecing is. I used dies for the candles and the foliage (the candles were cut from Glitter card), and pieced everything together.  I embossed the white mat and added a ribbon and charm for interest.  This is a standard A2 sized card.

I hope I've inspired you to get into your craft space today and revisit a technique you haven't used in a while.  Create something wonderful for someone - or even yourself.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
