Glittered Candle Ornament Card

I cut this ornament shaped card from Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge.  You can't see it in the picture, but the card opens to reveal the same ornament shape on the inside.  I cut the basic card from white cardstock.  I then cut an ornament feature of the same size of bronze metallic and one of printed paper.  The inside circle pops out, so I inlaid the printed paper into the bronze outer circle.  I then cut a separate white ornament feature and cut out an outside rim from that cut to go on top of the bronze circle.  That white circle was then covered with Cyrstal Stickles.  You could also cut this rim directly from the Cricut using white glittered cardstock.  My card is6" in diameter, so all of the mentioned cuts are at 6".    I then  cut a candle feature from the same cartridge at 3 1/2" using a textured red cardstock and a gold metallic.  I pieced the candle together and added it to the inside of the ornament, adding orange Stickles for the flame.  A pretty white bow ties it all together.  The inside could say "Wishing you a bright holiday season".  I made my card flat for easy mailing but you could easily build up layers for a dimensional look.
