Good morning I have a few minutes before work so I thought I would write up instructions from yesterday's late gift set post. I used a single stamp set from Unity called "Snowflake Joy". I must admit when I first received the set after ordering it I gasped on it's size. It was HUGE for me anyhow not being a scrapbooker I wondered how I was going to put the set to use. Now, I am so thrilled I did purchase it.
Throughout the ensemble I used two basic pigment inks by Colorbox soft white and silver. I also used two sizes of clear crystals, not sure of their size.

Jenni Mouer created a wonderful tutorial for stamping on candles. I used her basic instructions but since I used a pigment ink I first stamped image on to tissue paper then embossed it using silver embossing powder (listed above) before adhering to the candles. After completed I attached a little bling using Tacky glue and 2 sizes of clear crystals.

Completed card measures 4"x4". As you can see from the photo just a couple of layers, a touch of embossing to create this simple matching gift card.
This set would make a great gift set for those wishing to spend less then $20.00.
I also purchased some stones and a clear candle plate at Big Lots to complete this set. Cost of each $2.00.
