Christmas cheer

A twist on the Peek-a-boo Frames Bigz L Die making a tea light candle surround.  This is open at the top and bottom, but I'd recommend using one of those little battery operated tea lights rather than a naked flame this close to cardstock. I've used 'Be of good cheer' Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up's new catalogue, Cherry Cobbler cardstock and some silver glimmer card.  I also used vellum card stock for the "windows".  The Petite Pennant punch made the tree and the star is from the mini punch pack in the Holiday Catalogue.  Very sweet, easy to make.
Couldn't bring myself to discard the frames leftover from creating the peek-a-boo tea light surround.  So using a card sketch from PageMaps, I made this card using more of the "Be of good cheer" DSP.  Love how it turned out.
Apologies for the long delay between posts and hope you enjoy these two simple projects.
