Candle Shelf Christmas Card

BRRRRRR....

It has been COLD here! 

I have another card for you today. This one was made with one of my images. It is available in my Etsy Shop and also on Squigglefly. 

Here's a couple of cards I made:



You would not believe the time I had taking pictures of these!! Oh well, it is what it is. I hope you can get the just of it anyway. 

First I ran the background paper through the printer for the sentiment. 
The background was then embossed with the Stampin' Up Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I printed out the candle shelf image, cut it out and colored some of the candles red. (not pictured)
Then I added some silver or gold stickles to the flames. 
I used Rock Candy stickles on the candle wax drips. I did two applications to get some depth. They look amazing in real life!!
The greenery is just a sizzix diecut.
Then I added red stickles or red bling for the berries. The stars were drawn freehand and cut out of silver paper. I added some gold stickles to some of the stars. 

I love this image and it was fun to play with! 

I'll be back soon with another card! 

Blessings, 
Carmen
