Northwoods Christmas Candles

Hi everyone! As soon as I saw today's SCS Sketch, I knew EXACTLY which stamp I wanted to use...Love when that happens!

I stamped the Northwoods Three Candles stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped a second image, colored just the candles, cut them out and paper pieced them for a little dimension. The black mat behind the main image is up on dimensionals. Each of the flames has a very small dot of orange Stickles. The red rhinestones were glued down with a small dot of Crystal Effects.

The inside of the card has a white panel matted with basic black, then I ran a 1/2" strip of the Wassail DP along the bottom edge.

JustRite week at Stamper's Dream is still going on, so don't forget to check out the amazing (and I do mean amazing!) projects that Michelle, Tosh, and Amy posted today!
