Christmas Candle Trio

If you recall I mentioned in my post featuring the bird bath and fountain punch art that I came up with that particular design while making candle holders. Well, today I am sharing that Christmas candle holder card.

It features a trio of different candle holders, all made from the note tag punch. Each candle holder design can easily be used for a bird bath, fountain, outdoor planter or pedestal design as well.

This card is a large 5.5 x 8.25", half sheet, card.

I added a few pine twigs made of super jumbo fern punch pieces behind the candle holders. The candle holders were decorated with small pearls for a little extra bling. I mounted the largest candle holder first, then the medium holder with one layer of foam squares. The smallest candle in the front was mounted with 2 layers of foam squares to create perfect depth.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso - all SU
Stamps: French Script background - SU, Fun Phrases - SU
Misc.: pearl bling, foam squares, 5/8" red organza ribbon.
Punch art instructions for the three candle holders and the basic candle below:

Here is a quick example of how the candle holder design can be used for planters and display pedestals.

The planter plant is made of three (3) mega grass shapes (Nankong punch). My potted plant uses the following punches: Pot: Designer Label (cut in half) -SU, Bird Builder (10 - greenery) - SU, tiny flower - MU. I sponged my blue background with a little Marina Mist. The lattice was sponged with So Saffron and Crumb Cake and adhered over the background. I used three pieces that were trimmed to fit the card front. The small planter was glued to the card front. The pedestal, butterfly and greeting were mounted with foam squares.
