A5 tea = light card

Afternoon everyone, After having a go at the Tea light card I saw HERE I decided that I wanted to make a bigger version of this so I could make them as gifts for my daughter's teachers for Christmas.
Here is my take on this,

 It is A5 in size, I have used my free humphrey stamp and coloured it with my promarkers.
 I have used backing papers from the Cute Companions Cd Rom. The sentiment stamp is one of the Daisy and Dandelion christmas stamp sets. I have also used my snowflakes CB embossing folder then ran a ink pad over the top just to highlight the details.

 This is the inside view and I have again used the same backing papers from cute companions cd, this raindeer stamp I got in a Do Crafts goody bag last year but I dont know the name of it. The sentiment stamp is another freebie, it came with my Papercraft insiprations mag this month and is a Forever Freinds stamp set. The snowflake has been cut using my robo and I have layered the same snowflake on the front of the card after colouring them with my promarkers so they matched the stamp.

This is the box I created seperately and then glued to this 1/2 of the card. It holds 12 tea lights and I have left the top open and then tied with ribbon so you can get the candles out easily. I used my Xcut nesties to trace the 'window' and have used asertate. 
If anyone is interested in the dimensions etc for this I will try and get a tutorial step up and posted on here over the next few days. I have manged to work out so you dont need specialist sized card to make this it can all be done using just A4 card stock - takes a lil bit more time and may b a lil bit more fiddly for new crafters but the time is totally worth it I think.

Let me know what you guys think too.
