My first Tea-light card

This type of project has been on my 'to try' list for a while now,
and boy was it fun to make when I finally got round to giving it a go!
I am really happy with the result too.
It is a first but definatly not the last :OD

View from the front.
The stamp says
'Congratulations on your Birthday'

View from the side/back.

View from behind.
The stamp says
'Go with confidence in the direction of your dreams,
live the life you have imagined'.

Pocket to the left with a message tag,
Pocket to the right to hold 6 tealights
(I chose ones in a light blue colour, with a sent of fresh cotton...Yummy!)
The text stamp inside reads ' Hug to you'.

The spine.
A little detail of a copper heart attached with a copper jump ring.
I am LOVING the thick velvet ribbon with the loop details from Bikubben.
The beautiful design Papers are from Maja Design, trinkets from Minne Hjørne,
Text stamps from Stempelglede
(a gift from wenche, and I am so pleased with them! Thanks honey).
I have used pink and blue coloured pencil to colour the details on the stamps.
Cardstock Bazzil Biscuit (?), flowers from Story Teller, edge punch 'doily' from Martha Stewart.
The whole project is distressed along the edges with sandpaper and a nail file,
then Distressed with Tim Holtz - Vintage photo
Measurements taken from here
I am entering this project for the following challenges:

I know it takes time and I should be better at it myself....
But all comments are greatly apreciated :O)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hugs Nina xx

  16. This is stunning Nina. Your makes are all so special!
    You asked about the intricate work on the front of the cards on a recent post of mine. Actually the paper comes like that. it is the new Papermania Birdsong collection. You get 5 sheets, different colours and they all have the same intricate cut out on them
    They are great aren't they?
