Christmas Candle Light

****This is a pre-scheduled post****
I will be away from blogging for a period of time while I deal with the unexpected loss of my dad.  Thanks for your love and prayers. ~ Hugs, Birgit

Good morning~  Elizabeth Craft Designs is having a new designer's challenge starting today and the theme is Christmas.  They have a boat load of wonderful new dies for winter!  I used two of them on my project today.

Let's get started:
I inked the center of a piece of A2 sized white Soft Finish Cardstock with a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I cut some of the smallest Snowflakes out of white Soft Finish Cardstock and attached them, using glue only in the centers so the flakes would have some movement.
Next I cut this lovely candle called Festive Glow out of white Soft finish cardstock and again, added color using Distress Inks.  The Festive Glow die set has a beautifully detailed overlay.  I covered the Soft Finish Cardstock with Double Sided Adhesive before running it through my die cutting machine.  After removing the negative spaces and the release sheet, I added some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and assembled the candle.  

It's so pretty and sparkly in real life.  

If you haven't seen the new line of Christmas dies, you can find them HERE.  I promise they don't disappoint!

Here's your chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the ECD store.  There's three of them up for grabs!  Pop by the ECD blog to see how the other designers were inspired and leave a comment to win.  It's that easy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
