Watch Along Wednesday – Christmas Create-a-Card tealight

Crafter's Companion – 18/09/19

Welcome back to another fabulously festive installment of Watch Along Wednesday! For this week’s post, we’re bringing a bit of a glow to your crafting with this stunning Christmas Create-a-Card tealight. This collection of dies has been designed to help you cut detailed panels for cardmaking, scrapbooking, gift tags and more, but this project is something a little bit different!

In this project, David creates this beautiful glowing tealight with the Star of Wonder Die as the main focus. By pairing it up with yellow vellum and LED lights, he builds a beautiful piece that can be used on the mantelpiece, the dinner table or anywhere else that needs extra decorations during Christmas.

If this sounds like something you’d love to have in your home, take a look at the video below to find out how he creates it!

How beautiful is this tealight? We love the way that it looks with the glowing yellow behind the die-cut details, but you could always experiment with colours to make this project a little more to your taste. You could even have a go at making fun marbled or watercolour effects!

As well as colour, you could also switch out the die that has been used. The others in the range are:

Christmas Greetings
Ornamental Baubles
Decadent Snowflakes
Poinsettia Perfection
Flourishing Ivy
Swirling Tree

Each of them will work to create a beautiful panel in a variety of designs! The Decadent Snowflakes could look incredible against blue with silver accents, or a green backdrop for the Swirling Tree with gold details. There are so many possibilities!
