Hearts Ease Tealight Card by Sue Smyth

#couturecreationsaus



Here is a sweet idea for all of those card makers out there.
This is a fold out card that holds a tealight, which is a lovely
gift to give anyone.


I have cut an oval window in one side to see the decorated
tea light in side. Then die cut a scalloped oval frame to
go over top.


Decorate the sides with smaller panels of Victorian labels die
and Scalloped & Nested circles for the centers.


You can personalize the greetings you put on the sides to 
suit you.


Then tie it all up with tie dyed seam binding. You can light 
the candle with the box folded up or down. 
As hot air rises it will not burn the sides, but if you are
worried, just pop one of those battery tea lights in instead!


Follow the little step by step below to alter your flower.


I have also altered the leaves the same as a previous post, with
gesso and distress inks.



Step 1
paint with a smidge of white gesso, and dry off.


Step 2 
Apply Distress ink with a finger dauber all over flower 


Step 3 
Spritz with a little water (not a lot) and allow to ink to blend.


Step 4
Dry flower and apply glitter glue or white glitter.
This will give you a  pastel frosty looking flower.
