Welcome back to Day 3 of our Glitter Queens Fall Hop! These hops always go by so fast but I love doing them so much, and I get so many great ideas.
For today I have a cool 3-d item that is a combo card, tea-candle holder and box, all in one, I think they are going to make fabulous gifts and I can't wait to make more. I found a tutorial for them while surfing the web although now I cannot remember who the creator was :/ but I wrote down the instructions and made my version for fall.
I created the box with 'sweater weather' dsp, and the 'truly grateful' stamp set from the holiday mini, plus I used the autumn accents bigz, gold emboss powder and come candy dots.....I love the dots! :) plus I used a framelit from the 'labels' collection, the 'gorgeous grunge' stamp set and little leaves sizzlit.
After I assembled the box together I randomly rubbed versamark on the top then added gold embossing powder and heat embossed, after that I used some sandpaper to distress it a bit.
Once you open up the box you see the card/tea-candle holder, isn't it awesome, it's a gift and greeting all in one, it holds 3 tea-light candles, ( I got some really fragrant candles at our local 1.00 store)
I made a curly clip out of wire to hold the card front closed, the cute clips from our IBC would work great but I didn't have any......when you remove the clip it opens where there is room to add a sentiment or write a note.
I love 3-d projects and I think this one is fabulous, I hope you liked it too, I have a Christmas version in the design stage right now :) For anyone interested I will be creating a video of this project with Christmas dsp, although it will be a couple weeks before it is ready.
Remember to follow and comment for a chance at the 'magnificent maple' stamp! Winners will be announced on Sunday! I also want to invite you join me and hundreds of other card makers for the Operation Write Home Hop Saturday the 5th of Oct. Have a great day!
