A Cute Gift

I love candles.  I love stamping on them.  They make a perfect gift.  Over the last few years, I have made several candles and given them away.  
This year I made a Christmas candle and a matching card.  Its so pretty I think I might keep it for myself.  But you never know.

 I used the Home for Christmas stamp set for this candle.  I love the image of the door with the wreath and its perfect for watercoloring.  I stamped the image on white tissue paper and coloured it.  I then melted into the candle with my heat tool.  I added a little ribbon and a tag and Voila!!

So what do you think?  Would you love to receive this for Christmas?
Here is the matching card.  I used the same stamp set and coloured it the same way.  However, I made a side step card.  I found the directions for this card from fellow Stampin' Up demonstrator, Julie Davidson.  You can visit her blog for the instructions and template.

The card looks fabulous but is easy to do.  
I left the space on the right blank, so that I can write a personal message to the recipient.  

I enjoyed making this card, and plan to make many more.

Now all I need to finish this gift off is some gift wrap.  I think I will make a matching gift bag.  

Thats all for today.
