JAI148 - Just Add Christmas

Hi Everyone,

The challenge at Just Add Ink this time is "Just Add Christmas"

I've made this Twisted Easel with the Ornament Keepsakes bundle and a battery operated tealight.

See the difference in the first photo with the tealight candle on.  After seeing several other projects on our Stampin Up demo gallery Stampin Connection I had been on the lookout for these little tealights.  They really give the card that Wow factor.  Here is a photo from the back so you can see that it just sits behind the vellum window.  They were a little expensive to buy individually but my dear husband has since sourced them online for me and I'll be set for next years Christmas classes.

This was just the project and the challenge I needed to go ahead and use it.  My cardstock is Riding Hood Red, Pool Party and Very Vanilla with some Champagne Glimmer.  I've also used vellum, Festival of Prints Paper Stack, Festive piercing pack and Ornament Keepsake Bundle.  The greeting is from the stamp set Greetings of the Season from the Holiday Mini.  I swear this is my final Christmas card of the year.

Thanks so much for stopping to look and please leave me a comment if you like what you've seen.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Merry Christmas.

  2. This is really elegant, Carolyn - just beautiful! I love the combination of colours you've used, and the glimmer paper really adds a 'wow', doesn't it? Great use for a little tea light! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink. Merry Christmas :)

  3. Thanks Christine, what lovely Christmas variety in the final challenge. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year too.

  4. Now this is really "cool"! Where did he get them from? Vx

    1. I bought one from our local Newsagency Vicki- Cost $2.20. I'll have to check with Neil for you where he's ordered the bulk pack from.

  5. This really is a WOW card Carolyn! Great idea to use the tealight behind the vellum to give this wonderful effect for your card (I didn't even know there were tealights out there like that!). Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week! Wishing you a late Merry Xmas and wish you all the best for 2013 - hope to catch up with you at convention!

    1. Thanks Narelle, Merry Christmas to you too. Will be fabulous to meet in 2013. I really hope to get to Brisbane Convention.
