Velvet and Vintage Thank You Gift Set
Hi, it's Diane with a special fall gift set to share. I have been waiting for a chance to use some of the beautiful vintage embellishments in fall colors and now that the season is changing the time is right. This embellished candle would make a nice hostess present for an autumn dinner party and the card coordinates to make a lovely set.
I used the Vintage Poppies in Cinnamon for both the card and the candle. On the card, I replaced the pearl brad in the center with one of the flowers from the 3D vintage brad - antique flower medley and on the candle I used a vintage sequin flower with pearl center for the center of the velvet poppy.
I wrapped the candle with two rows of Brown Velvet Ric Rac vintage ribbon and placed two of the vintage layered flowers on either side of the vintage poppy. The candle is real wax but is battery operated for safety so there is no need to worry about any fire hazard when you embellish the candle.
The card base is dark green Bazzill textured cardstock, the first layer is copper metallic cardstock from a DCWV stack and the top layer was printed on the new Cricut Imagine machine (it is a sample from the make and take at CHA). The "Thank You" was cut with the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge.
