Candles Christmas Card

I have used an 8x8in white card blank. I have matt and layered it with red and gold mirror card then added white embossed card. I used a beaded fanfare embossing folder.

I die cut the following elements.

Trellis with a Tonic Trellis circle die.
Poinsettia with a Marianne die.
Candles with a Marianne die.
Sentiment with a Sue Wilson die
Die cuts that sentiment is on by Spellbinders

I added the gold shape to the bottom corner of my card. Using dies from the Tonic set,. I backed the trellis design onto plain white card then added it to my card. I attached the white circle into the centre of the trellis. I assembled the poinsettia and candles then added them to the trellis. I attached the sentiment to the white shape then added it to my card.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops and flat backed pearls
