May the season warm their souls

Made a quick Christmas card today in between loads of washing featuring the beautiful Candlelight die from Tattered Lace.

Over at CASology their current prompt is “warm”.  When I saw that prompt I knew I wanted to use a candle on my card as when I think of candles I think warm glow.  The fact we have Christmas in summer here in Australia and electricity has done away with candles in all but blackouts is irrelevant, I still grew up on traditional Christmas images of wintertime and candles on trees.  With that in mind I went with a grey/blue background for my candle to give the impression of a winter’s evening.

My card follows the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  The split in the top layer was the perfect place for my sentiment and I used my new Oxide ink to stamp it, the Iced Spruce going nicely with my Pion cardstock.  C.R.A.F.T. Challenge are looking for Christmas projects so I am also entering my card there.
