Our Daily Bread Designs, Perfect light stamp set, Christmas Candle die, Beautiful Borders die, Ovals die, Stitched Ovals die, Flourished Star Pattern die, doily die, Fancy Foliage die, created by Chris Olsen
Hello, Friends!! Happy Hump Day!!

Today I wanted to pop in and share a gift set I created with the new Christmas candle dies released at Our Daily Bread Designs tomorrow!!!  I just love these candles and I can see so many creations that can be created with it.  

Earlier this week I shared the ornament.  Today I would like to share the matching card I created with lots of glimmer and sparkle.

The dies were cut in gold and then I ran the die through a few more times in green and red to fill in the gold with the colors.  In this set there are additional holly leaves and berry that I cut out to give more dimension to my foliage.  The pinecones are created using the pinecone from the Fancy Foliage  die.

The background of the card is created using the Flourished Star Pattern die.  The sentiment is from the Perfect Light stamp set to be released tomorrow. It is cut out and framed with the Stitched Ovals and Ovals dies and layered on the Beautiful Borders dies.

Here is a close up of the card in different types of lighting.  The first shows the glimmer and gold and the second shows the sentiment etc.  clearer.

I used the new Christmas Candles dies to be released on Thursday!!  What fun dies!!
The pine cones added to the holly foliage are from the Fancy Foliage dies.  The candle itself is layered on  circles and fancy and more intricate layer cut by the Doily die.  The ornament itself before my embellishing was a 3D heavy cardboard ornament purchased from Michaels.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!
Have a blessed day!!
