“Rejoice” Festive Candle Card

October 13, 2018


Hello Crafty Friends!

‘Tis the season to start on those holiday cards!  I know, I know.  It is “only” October – but if you are anything like me, you have to rush make some last-minute cards right before the holidays.  I seem to do this every year!  However, with the newly-released A Way With Words dies and stamps I can get several beautiful cards produced quickly.  Today’s card can be easily reproduced with festive results.

Card Instructions:

Step 1 – Create a top-fold card base from white cardstock.

Step 2 – Die cut gingham paper (or a patterned paper of your choice) using the Stitched Rectangle die.  Mount to card front with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Die cut wood grain patterned paper using smaller Stitched Rectangle and mount to card front.

Step 4 – Die cut candle from red cardstock and light blue glitter cardstock.  Die cut wax ‘drip’ and flame from white cardstock. Using liquid adhesive, mount blue glitter cardstock to front of card. Using liquid adhesive, mount the red die cut to blue glitter die cut, offset slightly to create a shadow effect. Use a bit of foam tape behind the white wax ‘drip’ and the flame.  (Optional: Prior to mounting the flame, color it with a marker and apply glitter as shown. Alternatively, die cut the flame from yellow cardstock and omit the marker and glitter.)

Step 5 – Cut and mat gingham paper and white cardstock to card front.  Die cut Rejoice from red cardstock.  Mount to white cardstock using liquid adhesive.

Step 6 – Optional: add glitter to dots above “j” and “i” as shown.

Step 7 – Decorate inside of card as desired.

It is a simple, beautifully festive card for that special recipient on your holiday card list.  🙂

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a happy, crafty day!

Big hugs,

    This is indeed a beautiful card but I wish there was more emphasis on the inside of cards. This idea is much needed by many of us!
