My 3rd “The Dragons Den” Posting for the Monday “Pick of the Week” Slot

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card


Time certainly does fly when you are having fun, and it’s already four weeks since my last “Pick of the Week” post for The Dragon’s Den blog. Today a new post went live on the blog with a card I’d made and candle I’d decorated showcasing more great digi-stamps. You can see the post – Here!

The smaller card was scored 1cm into the back from the fold to give a dimensional “spine” to the card, and then the shortened back had a red card attached to make it the same size as the front.  Windows were cut out of the front of the card and a sheet of acetate was attached to the back of the window, trapping a piece of  red ribbon between window frame and acetate.  This smaller card was matted and layered onto the larger card, again trapping a piece of red ribbon between the layers.

I printed out the two digi-stamps out onto Super Smooth Cardstock, coloured them in using my ProMarkers and some other markers, before cutting them out.  The yellow patterned panel was stuck inside the smaller card, and the digis attached, the fireplace image using foam tape and the tree using a “box” constructed of a strip of cardstock.

Further decoration of die-cut holly leaves and glitter flocking was added to decorate the front and the two ribbon ends were tied in a bow.

I attached a piece of printable tissue to a sheet of lightweight paper using finger-lift tape and printed the digi onto it at the right size for my project.  I then coloured it in using my ProMarkers.

I tore around the edge of the tissue close to the image, put it onto a pillar candle, wrapped greaseproof paper around and heated with my heat gun until the wax began to melt.  I then pealed the greaseproof paper off and gave the re-set wax a quick polishing rub with a tissue.

The holly wreath decorative base was made from a circle of Satin Board and a strip of Satin Board made into a collar and attached to the base.  This was decorated using die-cut holly leaves and berries from my crafting stash.

This candle can be burnt, but not on the holly wreath decorative base.

If you love the images used for these two projects, but think that you won’t have enough time left to colour in a lot of digi-stamps to make Christmas cards and gifts, then the images are available already coloured from the shop:

“Oh Christmas Tree Coloured” – Here.
“Jiggy in front of Fire” – Here.

Keep an eye out for my next “Pick of the Week” post for “Thre Dragons Den” on the 2nd December – when I’m hopeing to show you another Christmas card, and in the meantime there will be further posts by the other design team members practically daily up to then to inspire you.
