PPA110 and A Creepy Pair

As promised, I have a two-fer for you today, a candle plus a coordinating card. I know I have shown you quite a few Halloween goodies over the last week or so, and I was going to change things up a bit. However, my friends at Pals Paper Arts gave a Halloween challenge this week, and who am I to turn down a challenge!

The candle is a simple 6" pillar candle which you can find just about anywhere. I wrapped it with  Basic Black Card Stock.  Over that, I wrapped some Brights Designer Series Paper in Old Olive which I stamped with spiders from the Scaredy Cat Stamp Set. A piece of Satin Ribbon in Basic Black adds some shine, and a few Tiny Tags (one with a Boo!) add some extra interest.

The candle was the inspiration for the card. The color scheme and stamp set remain the same. This time, though, I heat embossed the Happy Halloween greeting with black embossing powder and added a little white ghost and a rhinestone jewel.

The card and candle together would make a great gift and can be assembled in a jiffy. What a cute but creepy pair!

Awesome Halloween project! I love how you coordinated the card with the candle wrap. This is wonderful! I am a huge fan of Halloween, and since you mentioned you had done other Halloween stuff in previous posts, I'm off to have a look! Best, Curt

Such a great gift idea! I love that they coordinate so that the card could be displayed with the candle as well! Awesome card!!
