Candle Swap (Part one)


I have been doing several card swaps over at SCS, and am working this weekend on a one involving candles. I have chosen two scents, Outdoors and Fresh. This is the card I made for the Outdoor Scent. This was a tough card to make; I had a great idea in mind, but could not quite execute on it the way I would have liked. It is a pretty simple card, using a stamp I had received as a RAK from April awhile back. I used layers of paper to mimic the sky and sand, and embellished with a few brads, ribbon and a charm.

The little explosion box holds a Tea Light Candle in the Yankee Candle scent, Island Spa. Smells wonderful! I got the tutorial for the Explosion Box and top over at SCS, and just adjusted the size to fit the tea light!
