Candles 1

I love this die from Memory Box, it's so elegant.  I'm entering this card into the challenges at

There are some cards which have to be landscape in style.  I always have difficulty keeping them from sagging down in the middle to become flat cards!  To get over this I cut my card in two and then rejoin them along the short edge.  On the front panel, before putting the card together, I score a line about 1" from the left hand edge and punched holes in the small panel. For this card I used my Crop-a-Dile and then set eyelets into the holes.  I then tied paper raffia, from The Paper Cellar, through the eyelets and trimmed them to fit the panel.  Using strong dsst I joined the front and back panels together.  I used my Grand Calibur with the candle die from Memory Box and the largest of the Spellbinder's Decorative Labels 8.  To give a more pronounced dimension to the card I cut the centre from the Spellbinder's die cut to create a frame for the candles. The candles and frame were adhered to the card using pva. To round the corners of the white and green backing card (the green is a holly embossed card from Papermania) I used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.  The green card is flat onto the base card and the white is mounted using 3D foam pads
