Three Candles


Gosh Friday has come around quickly this week and I haven't got half the things ticked off my to-do list. So a quick post from me today and then off to my craft desk as I have a sympathy card to make, important, but never easy.
This week on the Daring Cardmakers we have a challenge set by Miri:

Use one or more candles on your card.
Maybe you can use a birthday cake with candles on top? Or a very early Christmas or advent card? Or even use a real candle on your card?
We would love to see your creations!

Click HERE to visit the blog and see some fab ideas from our
 great design team:
I printed some digital papers to use on my card so that I could use pretty designs, but reduce them in size for the rolled paper candles, and in larger sizes for other parts of the card
The 'candles' were rolled around a bamboo skewer to shape them.
I threaded through some lengths of ordinary string to make the wicks then glued the 3 candles onto a strip of scrap paper to hold them together.
More string was used for the tie around them, but I separated off a few of the strands to make it a bit less thick
The sentiment was cut in black card using an alphabet set for the HAPPY letters and a script die for 'Birthday'
To finish I used some of the leftovers and punched a few small circles which were them shaped with a ball tool to add more interest and balance.

That's all for this time, I hope you like it. Don't forget to join in with us this week - you can add any kind of candles and however many you like to your cards - we'd love to see them.

Hope you have a great weekend

Happy Crafting
