I subscribed to Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine once again and this embossing folder came and I new I had to use it for my Daughter and Son in laws Christmas card. She just loved it.
After embossing I went to town coloring the image with markers, I used a yellow chalk for the background.
There were also stamps and the stocking die with this magazine also. I stamped and colored the candle and hand cut it out. Before adding it to the card I decided to take my finger and add a little Nuvo Mousse to the sentiment that is embossed so that the sentiment would stand out a little better. Now I thought I had just a little touch left on my finger and I thought well I will just swipe it across the card to give a little textured look to the card, OH MY there was much more on my finger than I thought and now I had a big smudge on my paper, I could not remove that stuff for nothing, Soooo I now decided that is where my candle needed to go, and hopefully it would look like glowing candle on the wall. After coloring the logs and fire, which are separate stamps, I added some sparkle to the fire with my clear wink of stella glitter pen and some stickles to the flame on the candle.
