House warming gift

Friends of ours had a House Warming party this past weekend, and I needed a *warming* gift. Of course, when I think homey, I think of candles. Most days I'll have at least 3 candles burning. I love the warm, cozy feel they bring to a home.

Well, Yankee Candle did most of the work for me on this project. Their box was already decorated with these warm colors. So I just added the band, medallion, and scalloped card to the top.

For the Medallion, I used the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II Emsemble (JustRite).



For the Card Topper, I used my Harmony Rectangular Set with the Curlz and Brayton Fonts.



For all the shapes...well, that's where my Nestabilities and Cuttlebug come in handy. Rarely do I make a project without using one or both of them. I also used a hole punch for the scallops and the Horizontal Slot Punch (Stampin' Up!) for the ribbon. The band was made with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Supplies:
Stamps - Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II Emsemble, Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II Emsemble, Curlz and Brayton Fonts (JustRite)
Paper - Crabapple Dark, Sunflower Dark, Herbal Garden Light and Dark
Ink - Scattered Straw, Antique Linen, Aged Mahogany (Ranger Distress Ink), Pesto (Adirondack Dye Ink)
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Brad (Heidi Swapp), Twill Ribbon (May Arts), Decorative Ribbon (?), hole punch and dimensional Tape
(Prismatics), Neenah Natural White

Hope your week is off to a great start.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
