Candle of Rejoice


Hi my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have a simple card using a couple of Suzanne Cannon’s new releases they are wonderful.

Here is how the card was created.

Step 1  Create 6″ X 6″ card base from red cardstock.

Step 2  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 5-3/4″ square.   Using Garden Notes Stitched Frame It – Ovals die set use next to largest to cut oval placing die approximately 1/2″ down from top.  Emboss

Step 3  Using largest die from Garden Notes Stitched Frame It – Ovals die cut oval from green mirror card.  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to top side of oval around very edge line up behind oval opening adhere.

Step 5  Attach white square to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 6  Die cut Suzanne Cannon’s new Flourished Candle from gold mirror card.  Die cut candle parts from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top.  Remove protective covering add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter tap off excess and polish in with fingers.  Color flame with alcohol markers.  Add Liquid Glass to top piece of candle to give a dripped look.  Set Aside to dry.

Step 7  Die Cut Suzanne Cannon’s new Rejoice once from gold mirror card with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back as 1 from green mirror card with adhesive on back of that as well.  Adhere green on top of gold offsetting a bit.  Adhere under oval opening on card front.

Step 8  From green cardstock cut pine boughs using Garden Notes White Pine Boughs and Pinecones plus some holly leaves using Garden Notes Holly & Berries.  Shade and shape.

Step 9  Attach candle in center of oval using Kids Choice Glue.  Add pine boughs and holly at bottom of candle using Kids Choice Glue.  Adhere tiny red gems for berries.

  5. Using Susan’s Garden Black-Eyed Susan Die Set and white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 5 sets flower petals, black cardstock cut plate of seeds for 5 flowers and from green cardstock cut leaves.  Color, shade, shape and assemble.  Watch Susan’s video for guidance which can be found here.
  6. Using Susan’s new Maiden Hair and Ostrich Fern Dies cut 2 each from green cardstock (I used 2 different shades of green).  Using Distress Ink shade ferns.  Lay right side down on molding mat using medium ball tool from Susan’s Tool Kit rub back of Maiden Hair Fern fronds turn over run tool down stem for the Ostrich Fern use tweezers from tool kit to pinch up each frond then run medium ball down stem giving ferns some dimension.
  7. Arrange ferns, flowers and berry branches on front of card when they are where you want them attach using Kids Choice Glue.  You may not use all the ferns or you may cut some apart whatever appeals to you.  Berry branches I did cut apart and tucked in where I wanted.
  8. Using Els van de Burgt Studio Thanks die cut 3 from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back.  Stack together ( gives nice dimension) attach to upper right of card front.
