Christmas candles...

Hi ! Today I am sharing a Christmas card :) STAMPlorations has these New September release Christmas Stamp sets, they are amazing and so much fun to use :) I couldn't resist making yet another card :) So here it is...
I marked the lower edge of the card dividing it into 1cm parallel lines. Next I cut out a strip from black cardstock and adhered it over these marked lines. I added another horizontal strip of kraft card stock. On a blank card stock, I heat embossed these beautiful Christmas Candles in silver and fuzzy cut that out. On the upper half of the card I heat embossed some snowflakes in gold and also added some gold dots using a gel pen. Finally, I popped up the candles with foam dots and stamped the sentiment.
 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
