Midway at Unstampabelles

 The year is nearly over and we are midway through our challenge at Unstampabelles. Susan has asked us to showcase our creations that include a 'Flickering Light' This can be a candle holder, card anything really as long as you don't use stamps.

This is my inspiration for you. I was commissioned to make this card for a customer to send to her Uncle in Denmark. So I went for a red and white theme, the national colours of Denmark.

My followers will know that I like unusual folds and this is another. The main card is white card stock folded so that the centre pops out. I embossed it with the 'tied together' embossing folder. I found the lantern image in my stash and die cut it with a scalloped oval die. This was placed on a matt of plain white card which I lifted up with 3D tape. The red stripes on the side panels are red ribbon with sparkly snowflakes. I added some wooden red snowflakes to the ribbon and finished the card with red gems added to the corners of the centre panel.

I also added the same ribbon to the side back panels and placed a sentiment in the centre. The sentiment is from a CD but I can't remember which one sorry....smacked hands!! So we have a flickering light on the front and back of this card!!

I hope I've inspired you to pop over to Unstampabelles. Link in sidebar. As usual there's a prize on offer from Susan. This time it's a ......
