Glitter Queen's Blog Hop Day 3 Winter theme

Hello Papercrafters,

Welcome to day 3 of our Glitter Queen's Blog Hop! I hope your enjoying all the awesome paper crafts everyone has been sharing, I can't wait to get back home so I can hop around to everyone's blogs, I am still in Sonora and having a great time, but I will be so ready to get back home, to my own bed and I'm sure I'm missing my computer and phone service, lol. 

Today I have a Wintery version of the tea-light candle card and box I created for our last hop with the Fall theme, the design is something I cased on the internet although when I created the fall set I noticed the box was a little wider then the card/candle holder.  So when I created this set I re-engineered the box to fit my card/candle holder better, took a bit of trial and error but I ended up with a box that fits the card perfectly :-)   

The video for this project will be ready later this month, bear with me I've been preparing for this hop and I'm still helping my husband with harvest plus I have had several dr. appt's lately...all just check-up's, but time consuming all the same.

I used the dsp 'Winter frost' and our silver glitter paper to create the box and card, my card base is 'island indigo' cs,  the sentiments were from the 'Christmas messages' set in the holiday mini, on the top front of the box I used the framlits 'labels' collection and made 3 layers with them, I love this layout so much that I think I will make a card using this design (smiles)  the small snowflakes and stars are from an older small die I have, I used the silver glitter paper for these, they are so pretty and sparkly. 

On the card front I used the framelits 'ornaments' collection and 'island indigo' to make the ornament then I added some of the foil dsp from the 'winter frost' dsp, I added a twine bow and a rhinestone to the sentiment for a little extra sparkle. 

On the inside of the card, the sentiment was stamped on whisper white and punched out with the artisan punch and I also used more of the 'winter frost' dsp

This would make a great gift, I need to get busy with the video, the video will be of this winter version since the big day is coming soon, yikes.
