Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I can’t believe how quickly this year is coming to a close! Leslie here with a lighthearted experience to share and a pretty slimline card full of Christmas candles! We just finished building a cabin and moving, and my studio is total chaos. I can’t find anything but cardstock and a handful of ink pads. So I took process photos on my paper trimmer and used a Gemini Junior cutting plate as a stamp block. I’m totally amazed that the stamping (on the inside) came out straight! LOL! This card features Neenah Classic Crest Solar White along with Basis Red, Basis Dark Red, Kale Green, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Mantis Green, Stardream Metallic Eris and Bright Gold Foil!
Cut Card Base and Layers
I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base and inside layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White. Next, I cut two layering panels and an inside embellishing strip from Mantis Green. Finally, I cut one additional inside embellishing strip from Pop Tone Jellybean Green.
Using the Splitcoast Stampers Faux Quilt Candle Card tutorial for inspiration, I created the candles from Basis Red, Basis Dark Red, Kale Green, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, and Stardream Metallic Eris. A leaf punch and Bright Gold Foil were used for the flames.
I adhered the candles and flames to the front layering panel and trimmed them. Next, I adhered the embellishing strips to the inside layering panel.
Add Stamped Sentiments
I stamped the front sentiment in green ink on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the inside sentiment directly on the panel.
The front and inside panels were adhered to the card base, which completed the project.
