Heartfelt Creations CAS Card & Candle

Hello and welcome here!  I hope you're enjoying your week so far, we've been enjoying a little sun, a few clouds, and a little rain.  It's time again for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration.  I must say I LOVE their products, beautiful paper, beautiful exclusive dies, and beautiful stamps...what's NOT to love, lol.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
Candle Size: 2.68" x 3.94"
I decided to go clean and simple (CAS) this week because I love embossing intricate dies, the effect is quite elegant, and I then decided to add a matching candle.  Candle Stamping is so easy, I need to remember to make them more often, they make a perfect 'I'm thinking of you' gift.

I embossed (not cut) the Decorative Blossom Corner die in the corner, stamped the sentiment, and then added the bow, voila, done!

I like to finish the inside of my cards as well, usually a simple image, and a sentiment, or saying.

Just another view of the embossed cardstock.

I made a tutorial on Candle Stamping which you can view HERE. It really is quite simple, stamp on tissue paper, attach to your candle with your heat tool and wax paper...that's it!

For the Decorative Blossom Corner,  I cut about 6 sheets of tissue paper at a time (it's easier to separate 2 corners from 6 than it is to only cut 2 thin pieces and try to get them out of the die without ripping....yes, I tried, lol).  I then inked the tissue paper to achieve the light blue...I could have used coloured tissue paper if I had it hand, but I didn't, so I made due with white tissue paper and ink.

The seam is where the 2 tissue pieces match...I attached one corner piece at a time though, and then finished with the sentiment.

Recipe:  HC Decorative Blossom Corner Die, HC SS-Hope In The Lord, Heartfelt Expressions & Daisy Patch Flowers, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Bazzill CS-textured light blue, CTMH Ink-Black & Lilac Mist, Sheer Creations White Satin Edge Ribbon, White Pillar Candle, White Tissue Paper.
