Welcome back and today I am so excited with the debut of the stunning Candlelit Christmas collection from Heartfelt Creations.
The snow is gently falling, the decorating has been done, and the soft glow from the candles in the window invite you to just sit, relax and enjoy the peaceful side of the holiday season! Flickering candlelight is always a cozy welcome addition to any Christmas festivities, and is a lovely way to create a warm and welcoming ambiance, allowing for a stillness that leads to reflections of the season! Steeped in traditions for centuries, illuminated candles have been associated with the yuletide season in various ways…from being placed in the window offering a warm welcome to travelers from afar, to representing the Star of Bethlehem guiding the Wise Men to the birthplace of Jesus Christ, to setting the ambiance to a family Christmas dinner! Whether you enjoy the brilliance of candlelit lanterns, grand candelabras or a glowing votive, there is no denying the beautiful luminescence candles bring to the advent season! Join us as we leave behind the hustle and bustle and take time to reflect on the calmer side of the holiday season with the new Candlelit Christmas Collection! Become enraptured in a glimmering paper collection hued in brilliant blues, garland greens and holly berry reds, ensconced in illustrations of glowing candlelit lanterns, pretty centerpieces, and gladdening poinsettias, all dipped in elegant snowflake patterns, breathtaking brocades and festive floral clusters! A brilliant assembling of cling stamp sets, along with coordinating dies, offer radiant illustrations of festive lanterns, stunning ornamental centerpieces and beautifully scripted sentiments, perfect for embellishing all of your Christmas themed paper crafting creations. Stamp, die cut and shape an assortment of traditional flowering poinsettias, along with decorative holly accents quickly and easily with the coordinating cling stamp set, dies and dimensional shaping mold, allowing you to assemble realistic holiday poinsettias ideal for accenting handmade holiday greeting cards, scrapbook layouts, and heirloom albums! So, join us as we light our favorite candles, take in the beauty of the holiday season, and enjoy the shimmer and incandescence of the Candlelit Christmas Collection!
These poinsettias are just so easy to create and it is fun to make them in different colours. Today I am sharing an easel shaker card – check out the deer in the snow!
