Christmas candle

Hi, I've been wanting to use this candle die that I was fortunate to win in the snippets playground, and
was inspired by a couple of challenges.

At Inkspirational it's a colour challenge.

At Addicted to CAS the theme is vellum.

I've had some off cuts of purple irridescent vellum for ages, so I was glad to finally find a use for them. The base is a pearlized purple cardstock that is a good match for the vellum.

Attaching the candle pieces and sentiment to the card is easier if you put the vellum onto some double sided adhesive sheet before diecutting. (Ask me how I know lol!)

I also used up some snippets of silver shimmer paper so I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Memory Box Tall Taper Candle die; Impression Obsession christmas die; double sided adhesive sheet; vellum; shimmer paper; PTI Giga Guidelines impression plate; bling.

Thanks for visiting,
