Christmas Candles


Here’s another Christmas card design - I love the images from Heartfelt Creations! They are so good for working with the COPIC markers - lots of opportunity for shading and detail work.

20101031_ChristmasCandles copy



Note: finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”

Garden Green (SU!): 4 1/4” x 11, score @ 5 1/2”; Real Red (SU!): 4 3/8” x 3 7/8”; Stamper’s Select White Cardstock (Paper Trey): 4 1/4” x 3 3/4” and 4 1/2” x 2”


Tuxedo Black (Memento); Garden Green (SU!)


Poinsettia And Candles (Heartfelt Creations)


COPIC Markers: Y0000, Y000, Y02, Y38, R20, R22, R27, R89, BG0000, 0, G21, G24, G29; SPICA Markers: Clear, Red; Holly Shapeabilities die (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (Provo Craft); Sponge; Ribbon (Ellen Hutson); Bow-Easy; Scor-Pal; Glue dots; Adhesive Transfer Gun 714 (Scotch); Rotary trimmer with straight blade (Fiskars); Scissors



Stamp the image using the black on the larger white square, and color it with COPIC markers: 

  • Candles: BG0000, 0
  • Flames: Y0000, Y000, Y02, Clear SPICA
  • Leaves: G21, G24, G29
  • Berries: R89
  • Poinsettias: R20, R22, R27, Y38


Create the holly berry trim using the Spellbinders holly die and the smaller white panel. Run it through the Cuttlebug twice - once to cut, and once to emboss. Before you remove the paper from the die, use a small sponge to sponge the green ink onto the leaves. Color the berries with the red SPICA pen.


Mount the stamped image on the red panel, then onto the base card on the left. Add the holly die cut in the area to the right of the image.

Tie a small bow in red ribbon, and mount it above the holly die cut using a glue dot.

Thanks for stopping by!
