My stamp groups Christmas challenge for June was to use a candle on our card. I first thought of this pretty lantern die cut Esther had sent me when I had my foot surgery. I thought it would work perfect for this challenge, I just needed to make a candle to go inside. I just cut a rectangle shape, inked the edges to give it more of a cylinder look and then punched a leaf for the flame and did some inking on it. Of course we needed a little embellishing to give it a Christmas look and I just loved how it turned out. Esther if you stop by maybe in the comments you can say who makes the lantern :)

I am finally getting caught up with Christmas cards, hoping to finish up July this month too :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
A very pretty card. How unique to use a flower for the flame! The blue lantern really pops, especially with the greenery.
Esther sent an incredible set, Connie! It’s perfect for the candle challenge, and makes a beautiful card! How lovely! Hugs, de
Fabulous lantern and candle. Love the added greens and poinsettia! Merry Merry!
This is so pretty! You did a great job making the candle to go inside.
This is beautiful and how genius of you to create your candle ... looks awesome! That lantern is fabulous (what a wonderful act of kindness) and love the color you chose for it! Well done my friend! Hope you are well! This project we are working on outside is a BIG one and between the high temperatures & rain it's not been easy to 'get ahead' but we are and it's really starting to shape up! I'll be back to crafting everyday again before long! HUGS
I once had a die like this but never to be found again, sorted all my dies, took 3 days but this was a lost one. Love your card and it's beautiful candle inside, perfect for Christmas. xx
What a beautiful card. It’s stunning. Have a great day full of love. Hugs.
You always make me smile.
So pretty xoxo
This is gorgeous Connie and so clever! I never would have thought to make a candle like you did. Brilliant!
Oh my gosh I love this die cut and love the colors too. This is a gorgeous card.
great, clever thinking...outside the box, the card came out great!!
Gorgeous card!! I love the candle you made to go inside! Now I want to make a lantern card!
Oh and the lantern comes from Jeanine's Art --- I bought mine off of ebay --- but here it is in another store......
This is a lovely card Connie.
All the best Jan
