Lighting the Candles!!


Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamp called Lighting the Candles – D15204. This little angel is helping to light the way to a joyous Christmas for all!

To create this card I began by making a base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Doodlebug Design Inc. – Winter Wonderland was cut to the same size and applied directly to the base card using double-sided tape. I cut a piece of Recollections – Burgundy to the size of 5.5″ x 2″ and from a scrap piece of patterned paper 5.5″ x 1.75″. Double-sided tape was used to attach the 2 pieces together. These were attached to the base card using double-sided tape.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut Crafter’s Companion – Luxury Cardstock – Ice Blue Pack and Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock with Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson – Festive Collection – Holly Lattice Frame. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card.

The image was stamped onto the the smaller die-cut using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, MISTI and Dreamerland Crafts – Lighting the Candles stamp. It was coloured in with Copic markers and Stickles – Star Dust was added to the snow on the ground. For the sky, UNIPosca PC-3M White marker was used for the small snowflakes. Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – Itty Bitty Snowflakes and Dress It Up – Holiday Collection – It’s Cold Outside buttons were placed over top of the images’ snowflakes with liquid glue after I had removed the backing from them. Wink of Stella – Clear was applied to the wings to make them sparkle. I added U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the completed image and popped it up onto the centre of the card.  To complete the card, I placed a PinkFresh Glitter Drops – Lagoon in each corner.
