Hello friends, welcome once again :-).
I am back with another card today & this one is a tea light candle holder card with a tutorial (thanks to the
Itsy Bitsy Challenge, let me tell you I really enjoyed compiling this & please excuse me if I have forgotten to capture a few steps).
This card doubles as a box to hold small gifts (chocolates, candies, tea lights) within the card. I have used this tutorial for reference.
Let me first take you through the steps in making this box. I have used another cardstock to show the first two steps because I forgot to take pics!!!!
For my card I have used heavy weight white CS.
Glue one strip to form a box, leaving the smaller sides unglued to insert the candles.
The box & the card both are ready now. You can chose to decorate, embellish as you wish. I chose to heat emboss some flowers & then distress the card & box (used fired brick, barn door & mustard seed inks) as you can see -
Now here is the much awaited part....................the final look. I truly loved the white heat embossed flowers against the red BG.
Some close ups.............
This is the inside of the card...................included a small pocket to hold a tag.
The tag completely co-ordinates with the color scheme & design............lady bud included!!! The tag is distressed with walnut stain & vintage photo inks.
The front & the back of the card.
Also made this card with the Lulupu Challenge#14 in mind & used the colors accordingly.
