Morning Friends and Crafters. Today I am sharing a sneak peek at a super new Signature collection from Sara and Crafter’s Companion. A lot of you may remember the boxed cards that we used to get in the 1970’s. I think it was one of the biggest reasons that I have ever liked Candle Christmas Cards. This beautiful collection of papers, dies and stamps has totally changed my view. Within this collection is a stunning die ‘Candlelit Christmas’. It’s a lovely delicate design and an ideal die to create those batch cards we all need to make. By adding a little embellishment and dressing it up, it becomes a real feature for a special card.

You will need:
  • A Winters Tale ‘Words of the Season Die and Stamp Set
  • A Winters Tale ‘Candlelit Christmas’ Die Set
  • A Winters Tale ‘Scattered Holly’ Embossing Folder
  • A Winters Tale ‘6 x 6 Paper Pad’
  • Green Silk Card
  • Crafter’s Companion ream Card 5 x 5”
  • Burgundy Card
  • Red Card 
  • Gold Satin Card from Precious Metals Collection
  • Centura Pearl Ivory Base card 6 1/2 x 6 1/2” 
  • Tartan Ribbon to match
  • Tacky Glue
Step 1: Cut an oval from the green card approximately 4 x 3”. Cut the candle die from this centrally, trim away the candle from the holly.
Step 2: Cut another candle from a off cut of the cream card. Take the cream card square, and before embossing it, stamp the words ‘Have a Very Merry’ from the ‘Words of the Season’ set.
Step 3: Cut a piece of burgundy card to fit behind your green oval and secure in place with tacky glue.
Step 4: Select a piece from the paper pad and secure onto your base card with tacky glue. Then add your embossed card onto this, again using the same glue.
Step 5: Position your oval onto the card, allowing space for the ‘Christmas’ die cut (see photo). Secure your cream candles in place and then add the green holly and red holly berries.
Step 6: Cut ‘Christmas’ from the burgundy card and the base in the gold. Layer these then secure to your card. 
Step 7: To finish the card, tie a matching tartan bow and secure to your card with Collall 3D glue gel.
