A Floral Tealight Gift card

They say a little of what you fancy does you good.... well I fancied making a shedload of Tealight Gift cards for the school teachers this year so I am sharing this one with you all today. This one is made using the gorgeous Delicious Doodles Image Gladioli. Teri of course has lots of floral images available over at the store so please go HERE to check them out.
To make my card I used coredinations cardstock. I used the fantastic Tealight gift card tutorial over at Whiff of Joy tutorials. I used my Martha Stewart punches to create the corners and the borders on the card. I used some ribbons and roses from my stash and I used K&co papers. I didn't want too much going on as the image is so beautiful. I printed out the image after changing the colour to purple on my graphics program. I then cut it out with a nellie snellen die and added distress inks.
This fits four standard tealight candles so is a great gift. I know lots of people I am making them for this year.

Close up

The current challenge is still running over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge blog so if you have time we would love to see your creations there.
Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale

Love this tealight card, there are some very lucky teachers and friends out there!

You are so clever with that graphics programme - I hoping to get time to play with mine over the holidays as I just love what you do with it. x
