Pillar Candles Trio

I bought the Pillar Candles Trio die in a bundle of pre-loved dies earlier this year - this is its first outing so I'm entering Darnell's NBUS Challenge again.  I've used colours from the current 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge which is 'Red, white and any colour but green' (I've chosen gold) and as the paper and card were from my snippets drawer I'm paying my last visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.   I was about to publish this post when I saw that the new ABC Christmas Challenge is 'S for Silent', which is no sentiments or text, so I'm also entering that challenge.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Dies: Memory Box 'Pillar Candle Trio' and 'Mini Holly Leaves'
Snippets: Red & gold paper, white card, gold mirri card

I layered a piece of paper onto gold mirri card and attached it to the front of my card.  The Pillar Candles Trio was die-cut from red paper and gold mirri card and the Mini Holly Berries from gold mirri card.  The candles were attached to a snippet of white card, this was trimmed to size, layered onto gold mirri card and attached to the card front with Pinflair glue.  To finish I attached holly to the bottom of the candles.
