Gatefold card and Tealight candle card

by Gayatri
(Kerala, India)





I am a big of Christina. Her tutorials are so simple and easy to follow that I want to try out all her cards :)

I made a gate fold card as a congratulatory card for marriage. I didn't include flowers cos I had to give this to the bridegroom... The inside of the card, I made more attractive with a strip punched using Martha Stewart punch.

Diwali is a festival of light celebrated in India. A tealight candle card is perfect for the occasion. I made a quilled 'Diya' or lamp and quilled flowers to go with it. I added scented candles and made a box cover matching with that.

The dimensions given by Christina are so perfect that I could make the tealight candle without any hitches. For the cover I adjusted the measurements to suit the size and ended up spoiling few sheets in the process ;)

Thank you and happy crafting

This finished project is so pretty and I love the different colored candles in your box. I am sure it was very well received and perfect for such an occasions.

It is interesting to know how different countries celebrate the special times in the year and what type of gift is given.

Well done on a lovely gift for your friend
