Trio of Candles
by Penny Ward


Hello Memory Box friends. Penny here today with the last day of the Christmas in July Blitz. I like to get started early on my holiday cards, so it is a good thing that Memory Box comes out with their holiday collection in the summer. How about the adorable trio of watercolored candles? And that Stitching!!!!!  L O V E !!!!!

So...here we go:


Start with a White cardstock base 4.25 x 11 inches, then fold in half. Die cut one side of the card base with the largest of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles. Wrap Burgundy sheer ribbon and secure in front.



Die cut the second smallest of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from White cardstock and adhere over ribbon with foam adhesive. Die cut Stitched Holly Leaves from Green cardstock, trim and adhere just under the raised rectangle.



Die cut Little Candle Trio from Watercolor paper. Color with paints or use Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers as I have done. Adhere to raised rectangle.

Stamp sentiment from Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Add Autumn Red Crystal Drops as desired around the card front.


 We hope you enjoyed seeing our creations with some of the new Holiday collection.

If you want a chance to win the Little Candle Trio, just leave a comment before Midnight TONIGHT July 23, 2017.

HI Penny and a special tummy rub for Cooper!
Lovely card as always. Especially love the shadow behind the candles!

Beautiful, beautiful work! I love the holly berries that are behind the candles. They add that extra little bit of pop to it. Wonderful job!

I really like the use of the stitching on the card.

Elegant! I'm happy to see the candles actuallly used, as I wouldn't have purchased this set by just looking at he die...but now I do want to use it myself! THANK YOU,
