By Candle Light

Hello blog friends!
It's Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I have something a little different I would like to share with you today. Instead of your traditional card I created this T-light lamp using the Decorative Lace Border Die. This project was so much fun and quite easy to make.

Heartfelt Creations Products:
HCD 713 Decorative Lace Border
    HCD 736 Classic Leaf Die
HCPC 3548 Dahlia Cluster PreCut Set
HCPC 3547 Bold Leaf PreCut Set
HCPC 3545 Open Leaf PreCut Set
HCDP1 235 Burst of Splendor Collection
Other Products:
Papers: Heavy white cardstock - Hollo's, Whisper White cardstock - Stampin Up
Inks: Copic's V17,15,12, Tombow markers 158, 192, Stampin Up marker Garden Green, Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Teardrop beads and 4 mm and 5 mm pearls - Jewelry wire, O Rings, Michael's, Iridescent yarn - Scrapbook Korner, White Thread, Stickles - Star Dust, Fine Glittler, Candle Stick and Votive Cup - Hobby Lobby, Beacon 527 glue, Battery operated candle
Start with adhering the candle stick and votive cup together using the Beacon's 527 glue. While this is drying, cut out four Decorative Lace Borders from heavy white cardstock and adhere together, ending up with a strip about 23 1/2" long. Cut two 1/2" strips from the Burst of Splendor Collection and adhere one inch from the top. Add some Star Dust Stickles throughout the middle of lace, let dry. Now using the Scor - Pal score every other scallop, turn work over, score opposite scallops. Now do the mountain, valley fold and adhere ends together. With needle and thread and small pearls (31 - 4mm) start threading through the holes right below the scallops adding pearls between each outside fold and tie off where you started. This creates the small opening at the top. For the bottom, thread yarn through the various holes and tie off once you have the desired opening. Stamp small Dahlia, color with copic's and cut out, add some Stickles for bling. Stamp the Bold Leaves with Garden Green color, then stamp over it with the open leaf stamps using Tom Bow 's 158 and 192. Cut out using the coordinating die. Add some glitter to the leaves and adhere to flower. Place and adhere flower to lace shade.        Using jewelry wire, teardrop beads, pearls and o rings, attach to small loops from Decorative Lace Border.
