Light it Up at Allsorts

2010-12-01 004
Good morning. Hope you are all keeping safe & warm. It’s Saturday so that means another new challenge at Allsorts and this week the lovely Helene has asked to see a candle/light on your projects.
I thought I would have a go at making a Tealight Holder/Card as a Christmas gift.
I started by measuring the size of the container needed to hold 5 tealights and made a gift box based on this size and then made the card base big enough to accomodate the box.
I stamped my all time favourite swirl on the base of the card and the lid of the box with Perfect Medium and then embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Steel Blue EP.

I then stuck the 'giftbox' to the inside of the card.
The front of the card has been decorated to match the inside - with a cute image available from
Digistamp Boutique - this week's sponsor - coloured with PM's and a touch of Glamour Dust mat and layered onto silver mirri card.
A touch of ribbon a tag and a Christmas Wishes sentiment to finish it off.
Challenges I would like to enter are:
Paper Play - Monochromatic
Craft Your Passion - Monochromatic
Cupcake Craft - Light it Up
OSAAT - Glitz it Up
Paper Sundaes - Adorn those Corners

Thanks for popping over. Hope you can join in the fun again this week.
