Christmas Tea Lite Card

I got the idea of this card at one of our consultant crop days last year I think, but can't remember who was the clever girl that made up a sample.
I thought it would look good as a Christmas Card.  I cut a piece of Colonial White cardstock 5.5" x 12" & scored at 3" & 6" folding both as mountain folds to form the base of your card.  I cut out a 2.5" circle in the top, then cut a a larger circle in vellum,  I used Whisper & then shadowed the White Daisy exclusive inks for the sentiment from the Merriest Christmas Stamp set.
I cut a 6" x 5.5" piece of B&T paper out from the Yuletide WOTG Kit for the base section, the Poinsettias are cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge - page 73 in various sizes to make the leaves & flowers.  I used Cranberry & Topiary cardstock, stamp random patterns all over the flowers, wet them, crunched them up & when dry shaped the flowers & glued together with Liquid Glass (my favourite thing to use).  The Reindeer is cut from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge in Black cardstock.  You can decorate rest of card as you wish with bling, I used the gold shimmer trim as a border & the Bling Gems Gold assortment on the flowers with a little red gem for his nose.
And of course finish off with the tea lite candle behind the vellum.  I was happy with how it turned out.
