Christmas is just around the corner

Layer a piece of the ModaScrap Wood Effects design paper on top for the rustic background. Attach to the top of the card, as shown. Use the same die and die cut the candle, and extra flame and melting wax, using ivory card stock.

Color the flame using yellow and orange markers. Attach the ivory candle and flame on top of the gold metallic candle. Use a clear glaze and spread over the candle to give it a waxy appearance. Die cut 4 oval pieces and 6 plates of the pine cone petals.

To assemble, shape the oval pieces with the large ball stylus. Glue two oval pieces together, adding glue to only the edges of the oval. By using two oval pieces it will help hold the rounded shape of the pine cone.

Use the small loop tool and shape all the pine cone petals - pull down from one end to the next and it will slightly cup each one. There are two ways you can create the pine cone. Susan shows in her Facebook Susan's Garden Club video to glue the petals on the oval with the cupped side down and you will have a pinecone that hasn't yet opened.

She pulls the tips of the petals back once they are glued, for a more open pinecone. For a more open pinecone I prefer to add the petals with the curved sides facing up.

Add the first couple of petals at the tip of the oval with the curved petals down, then start gluing the petals with the curve facing up. Alternate all the petals going across in rows. Use the Garden Notes Leafy Berry Branch die set and die cut two branches, using a very light brown card stock.

Place the point of the tweezers on the end of the leaf and pinch up. This will give the leaves dimension. Add red Nuvo Crystal Drops for the berries. Allow to dry before assembling the centerpiece. Glue four pine boughs on the lower left side of the card and four boughs on the left.

Glue the longest branch from the Leafy Berry Branches on each side, over the pine boughs. Attach the assembled Candle Flourish, with dimensional tape, in the center between the pine boughs and berries. Use the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set and assemble one white poinsettia.

Use the very pale yellow PanPastel from Set 3 to shade the lower half of each petal then use the light yellow green PanPastel from Set 1 to shade over the the light yellow just at the base.

Shape the poinsettia using the Flower Tool Kit. Attach the poinsettia at the base of the candle. Use yellow green Nuvo Crystal Drops to make 5 dots in the center of the poinsettia.

While the Nuvo Drops are still we, drop in a few yellow Prills. Add the pine cones on each side of the poinsettia, as shown. This card will mail nicely in one of the large clear acrylic boxes.Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.
