Christmas card with a difference

At our last crop, Liz showed me how to make a lovely card with the bottom section folded to form a little box to hold tealight candles.  I made a template and finally found time this weekend to have a go at making one.

I embossed the background cardstock with Cuttlebug snow flurry embossing folder, the sentiment is Stampin'Up, the image is by Penny Black from the T for transparent set 'Christmas Friends'.

I am entering this card/candle box into the following challenges -

Penny Black and more @ allsorts - All creatures great and small

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas, red and embossing

The Ribbon Girl Blog - Jingle all the way to Christmas

The Ribbon Girl blog has a lovely blog giveaway at the moment to win a Kaisercraft wooden reindeer and Christmas embellishments.
