Roll Your Own Candles for a Card

Roll Your Own Candles Card Design

Roll Your Own Candles Card

This is another of Aly Dosdall's card designs from Big Pictures Classes' "28 Cards in 4 Weeks" online class. The roll your own candles are really clever and the card is suitable for birthday boys and girls of all ages.

I made four of these cards - all for adults. Imagine the things you could write:
  • I wanted to make enough candles for every year of your life but Michael's didn't have enough patterned paper; or
  • I thought I'd make a card with a candle for every year but the card wouldn't fit through your door.

For children under nine, you could use fewer candles spaced differently.

I did a bit of experimenting to perfect the roll your own candles technique. Read more.

Artsy Bloggers Roundup #345

I love heading up Sundays with some of Cherie Burbach's Bible-inspired mixed media art. It's a perfect way to start the most special day of the week. I hope you have a restful, restorative day spent with loved ones. We all need time to think, recharge our batteries and cherish our blessings.

Cyndi Lavin has the best kind of giveaway on her blog - a gift card to use selecting beads YOU love. You have 3 days to enter and the clock is ticking.

I'm glad Lisa Crone didn't have an accident in the rush to get home and open her box of Swarovski swag. Oh my, what until you see!

Tammy Powley admits she's addicted to amigurimi. Would you look at all the wonderful cute stuffed goodness she's working on! I expect some will be personal gifts but most will go to charity. That tends to happen when you're obsessed with a craft AND have a big heart like Tammy's.
