DT Challenge: Lights All Aglow

Hello!  Did you catch the Mint Motif release on Sunday?  If not, scroll down to this post.  I know sometimes weekend releases get missed but we can’t help it if the 14th falls on a weekend!  :)  You surely don’t want to miss the two new sets!

It’s time for another IHP DT Challenge!  This month’s theme is light, since so many holidays coming up have light as a key theme in them.  I decided to alter some

pillar candles and make a coordinating gift box and card.

I used Village and Thin Ice papers from the BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses line.  First I stamped some snowflakes in Palette Boudoir Blush on Thin Ice and wrapped the candles.  Then I trimmed the edge of the paper by wrapping some Glimmer Pink ribbon around the top and bottom of each.

  Next I altered the candle holder by wrapped the edge with some pink minicheck gingham fabric tape.  I LOVE this tape and it was the perfect touch to this plain glass holder. 

Then I covered an old Target Dollar Spot planter box that I picked up over the summer with the Village papers.  I added a ruffled white satin bow, some Zva flourishes, and stamped the greeting from Very Merry Sentiments and die-cut it with my circle Nesties.  The box holds both candles and the candle holder. 

Then I finished off my project with a coordinating card, using a few of the ornaments from the coordinating Eskimo Kisses Pops embellishments.  I added some white metallic string and stamped the greeting, again from Very Merry Sentiments.

There you have it!  I do hope you’ll play along.  If you do, be sure to leave me a comment and tag your creation with ihp1110 when you upload it to any of the online galleries.

Now…go hop through the rest of the design team to see their amazing projects to help BRIGHTEN your day.  Tee hee!  Here are the links!

What a lovely gift set. I feel more relaxed just looking at it (or maybe that was the muscle relaxer I took before work)...anyway, I really do love this project...feminine and elegant. BRAVO!
