Hurricane Candle

It is always such an honor to be asked to guest design so I am excited that I  have been invited to be a guest designer at the CROPSTOP.  I love candles. There is something romantic and serene about them. So when I saw the Elizabeth Craft Hurricane candle,  I had to have it.

 The front of the package for this hurricane candle pairs it with some pine boughs and a poinsettia so I think the idea was to use it for a Christmas card.  It is too pretty to use just for Christmas so I created a spring time card that could be used for many different occasions.


Here are the directions.
1.       Cut a card base 4 ¼ by 5 ½.
2.        Use another piece of card stock a little larger and cut it with the Memory Box Blooming Floral            Frame.
3.       Adhere to the card base.
4.       Cut the hurricane two times from vellum
5.       Cut the candle three times from card stock and glue together to give it some dimension.
6.       Glue candle to one piece of the vellum
7.       Glue the second vellum hurricane on top using Ailene’s tacky glue at the bottom part of the       hurricane  where the flowers will cover the glue. 
8.       Cut and shape Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blossom and put some Prills in the center.
9.       Tuck some Elizabeth Craft ferns behind the flowers.

I       I sent this as a Birthday card to my favorite SIL.
