Grammy's Card

Hi ya friends,
Hope you have recouped a bit from the holiday blitz in time for the New Year's one coming up :)  I must have been a reeeeeally good girl this year cuz I got lots of new toys this Christmas! Ha! Santa must have not been checking too closely ;) wink---> My fav gift was a new ipad 4! Now my Apple trifecta is complete! I have a mac computer, an iphone, & now an ipad! Yay! Annnnnd, I got the new Pendergast novel Two Graves which I'm reading on my new ipad :)

I realized I forgot to post the Christmas card I made for my grammy. I have wanted to make this card style since I first saw it & i knew she would love it.

Here's my card:
 It's a tea light easel card. The ones that I've seen twist to one side, but I wanted to make a forward facing one with room for a small addition of the poem "Twas the Night before Christmas" heat embossed in gold at the top.

Here it is lit: (sorry for the weird lighting :(

A closer peek:
As you can see from this shot, I layered the poinsettia 3 times to make it dimensional. I added glitter to the flame & the melted wax part. i thought the candle image was *perfect* for this card style. Oh! This beauty is called Holiday Poinsettia Candle from Heartfelt Creations. I luuuv the stamps  and coordinating dies in this collection! Just so preeeeetty!

Ack! I can't believe how this week just flew by! That means my vacation is half over & I still have so much I want to do :( Ah well, better make the most of next week!

Thanks so much for peeking today.
Hope you have a couple of lovely crafternoons this weekend!
Gotta Go!


  1. That is an absolutely awesome card!!! I'm sure you're grammy loved it and maybe will even keep it out all year. I'm definitely going to CASE this idea because I have the same stamp. Thanks for the amazing inspiration.

  2. Karli,

    Your card for your sweet Grammy is exquisite!!! Love the design, 3D poinsettia, and tealight effect. The embossed poem is the icing on the cake.

    Certainly sounds like Santa thought you were a good girl :) Enjoy!

    Hugs, Lisa

  3. Your Grammy's card is beautiful and I'm sure she absolutely loved it!
    I'm so glad that Santa brought an Apple for his favourite teacher! Enjoy the rest of your well-earned holiday!

  4. Hi Karli,

    thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
    This card is sooooo pretty. You are right, the candle motive is perfect for it.
    Love the 3D flower. Lots of work for that card, but absolutely worth it.

    Have a great day!
    Big hugs,


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment :) So appreciated!
