Gatefold card and Tealight candle card
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

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