Dies R Us Christmas Candle

Dear Ones~
Hello, and merry, merry Christmas. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day, no matter how you chose to celebrate the holidays!! Today I have a little Christmas Candle card for you over at the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.

Here is how I made this card:

First I chose my papers. I decided to have my card base a pretty dark green.

Next I cut my images using the Memory Box Glowing Candles die set on gold foil card stock, and the Poppy Stamp Bow and String using GKD Red Hot Card Stock.

Then I partially die cut the candles with red, and the holly leaves with green.

The innerds of the candles and leaves were what I was after. They got sponged, and then inlaid into the gold candle die cut. I die cut a couple of nesting oval shapes for my background and adhered the focal to the oval. Then I was ready to put the whole card together.
I added a gold embossed holiday message to the front, and then pulled out my Wink of Stella to add sparkle to the candles, and added some Stickles to the flames to make them glow

These are the dies I used:
