Lighting The Candles

A warm welcome and thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower. I want to say I really appreciate all the comments on my last post.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

Another quick and easy design, I am trying to use some of the dies that haven't been used for years.  I die cut both parts of the window and attached them together,  then used the Gothic Window die to cut out the holographic gold paper and attached behind the window.  I added a little mounting tape on the back for dimension. 

I die cut the candles with white and red card stock and added the red pieces back into the frame.  I had to die cut the holly part twice, once in white and then in green card stock and hand cut the green part and then attached to white.  To complete the design I tried to center it on black card stock and added a couple of rhinestones.

  3. Hi Diane I love this window scene, the gothic arch is great and a super back drop against the black. The glass in the window just looks like a stain glass window, very clever.
