Tea Light Christmas

I have made a few of these tea light cards for friends, and now that I have delivered them I can share these with you. They are easy to make using a die cut whose negative works just as nicely as the positive. For these cards I used Frantic Stamper dies. I die cut then attached acetate to the back of the tent style card. For the star on the left, I applied stickles to the acetate around the open part of the star and left over night to dry. I used the next die down to make the trim of the star, cut in metallic papers, and cut a couple more in smaller sizes, the one on the acetate is on foam dimensionals. After I took the picture I did stamp a sentiment in the bottom right corner. For the ornament, I applied gems to the ornament, and a bow and gold thread. On the inside of both cards I kept it very simple, using a Merry Christmas die that is open in order not to distract from the open window of the card. I put battery operated tea lights in both, and this is what they look like with the lights out.
They are fun to make and very pretty. I made others with large dies that will allow light to come through, so I hope you will make give these a try. And here is a close-up of the star card.
