Fast, Easy & Elegant

Well my friends, it's almost too late for those Christmas Cards but if you are in a pinch and need something in a hurry, you are in luck.  It's S@ndy here with a last minute card that can save the day!
This card can be put together in minutes and what's even better than that?  I used paper from my scrap pile.

Here we go-

The finished size of this card is 5.5" X 4.25".  Begin with 8.5" by 5.5" then score and fold in the center.

Using the Festive Glow die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs (ECD) - cut the candle base.  1 decorative candle layer.  1 each of the flames and 6 greenery pieces.  1 bow - not shown.

Using the ECD Stitched Ovals - cut one oval to fit card, shown in white.
Using the ECD Dotted Scalloped Oval - cut 1 coordinating oval.

Layer scalloped oval on stitched oval and add to front of card.

Begin by adding candle base to ovals with 2 pieces of greenery under candle.

Add decorative candle piece to base and continue to add the rest of the greenery.

Assemble bow and add to greenery in the center.

Ok, how easy was that?
