Double Mask Holly Jolly Card and Candle

By | December 21, 2015

Hi there

Well I think this is the last Christmas project I have to share with you for 2015.

At this months card class we made a card and decorated a candle – these are fun to make and can be done for any occasion.  I CASED the card from Sandi MacIvor – with a few tweaks.  This card uses a double mask technique to create the ‘ornament’ and the bottom snowflakes.

My top ‘snowflake’ is a double stamped image – I stamped it with full strength ink then restamped (without reinking) again just off from the original image to create a bit of movement.

Stamping candles is fun – just watch you don’t heat your fingers in the process.  Stamp whatever image you want to use on white tissue paper then cut out the image as close as possible to the stamped image – you can have multiple images on the candle.  Place the cut out image on the candle then wrap a piece of wax paper tightly around the candle and heat with a heat tool.  Cut the wax paper the height of the candle and long enough to wrap around the candle and then some more – enough to create a ‘handle hold’ for while you heat it.  The tissue paper melts into the candle after a few seconds.

Supplies:
Stamp Set – Holly Jolly Greetings
Card Stock – Thick Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink – Island Indigo, Pool Party
Other – Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Delicate Ornaments Thinlits, Word Window Punch, Sponges.  Candle, Tissue Paper and Wax Paper – all non SU.
