Thank You

JustRite is sponsoring a Friday Challenge #062:  Give Thanks .  For this challenge I purchased a fall candle at a big box store.  The next step was to decorate the candle so that you could not see the logo on the glass.  This will be a Thank You for a helper at school so I wanted to make a card too and make this a true gift set..  Two JustRite sets were used to complete the project:  Heart to Heart and All Occassion nested sentiments.  The papers are from Imaginisce and Bazzill.  I used the Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents from Spellbinders on both the candle and the card.  Edgeabilities are on the border going around the candle and also on the card.  Classic Postage Stamp, Classic Scallop and Classic Ric Rac were used in a variety of combinations.  Distress Ink Antique Linen and Walnut Stain were used on the card.  Walnut Stain was used to stamp the Just for you and Thank You.  Seam Binding was stained with Antique Linen Stain and crumbled up to make the bow.  A paper leaf was cut to finish off the bow.  Below are individual pictures of each part of the project.


  1. A classic presentation of a card and gift (candle). Beautiful colors with great design elements. Love it!

  2. Fabulous gift set, Mary Jo! LOVE your great fall shades too. I actually thought of stamping on a candle, but time was short. I do plan to gift my pumpkin centerpiece & Gather banner too from different challenges for our Thanksgiving feast hostess (who'll later get this card)! ;~)


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
