Paper Piecing Holiday Cards - SFC - #99

Oh I loved this challenge from Squigglefly's Blogspot!  I had to get a few more Christmas cards in the works anyhow - and I had recently purchased this awesome Shy Bear:Candle Bear from  Perfect excuse to enjoy some paper piecing and use up some of my smaller stash papers! 

Right away I knew what paper I wanted to use - I received it in a package of Close to my Heart and it was perfect.  I only had 2 6x6s of the patterned paper so printed wisely - doing 2 identical cards.  I added some copics to Shy Bear and some Icicle Stickles to the candle wax and Shy Bear's hat.  The tag was super easy to make just cutting around my sentiment "Happy Holidays" and remounting on a scrap of red.  Then a small hole with the Cropadile and of course, my favorite, CORD!  Love that stuff!

Hope I inspired you to try some paper piecing!  Come on over and visit Squigglefly's store and take a moment to enter their challenge on the Squigglefly blogspot.  Just click on those links, you'll love it there!

  3. Linda, this really turned out so darling. I don't think I ever would have thought to paper piece a candle, but it's just the cutest! You picked some great paper - looks like a peppermint stripe! I really like your layout too, and the touch of sparkle is great.
