Create with TLC: Off to Grandma's for Chritmas

Here we are with another

Hope you you have arrived here from
and you have enjoyed her project
and taken her image to play with.

Now come and see what I have made for you:
An easel card with a light.
Now i am sure you want to know how to make this.

First i share with you the free
image that you can use to make this card:
(just click on the image and safe to your computer)
The idea for this card I found on the internet
and it has a video and all information for you
to make this card that measures 4,5 x 5,5 inch
when folding flat. So it can be send in a regular envelop.

Go to DoStamping with Dawn for all info.
From the back the card looks like this:
a battery controlled candle!

Papers are Club Scrap Orient Express.
And the sentiment is from the um stamp set
Ä very groovy Christmas" by Club Scrap.

The inside of the card looks like this.
You see on the left side the folding line
and the oval whole for the vellum.

At the right side I have this border with a
Club ScrapOrient Express stamp and a sentiment
you find as a freebie on the Create with TLC Blog.
I printed it with the computer.

The package is a die by Tim Holtz.

Are you ready for more inspiration?
Please hop over to
to see what she has in store for you.

Thank you for looking
and your comments are much appriciated.

Have a creative day!

Your card is freakin' cool. I've never seen one done like that. Thanks for the link on how to make it. I also like that you went with non-traditional colours. Love the sentiment you used on the front too.
