Thanksgiving Center Piece

This Autumn spice candle is about the size of a coffee can. I purchased it at Pier 1 Imports. I love how it smells but I needed to "dress it" for Thanksgiving! I used my Autumn Dots Wheel and inked with my Clear Embossing Cartridge onto Chocolate Chip & Pumpkin Pie 12 X 12 card stocks. I then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. This candle is 13 inches around so I had to come up with an idea to hide the 1" gap. Well here is my solution. The saying is from God's Blessings & it's punched out with the Large Oval Punch. I used Sticky Strip to adhere it to the large oval Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware frame. If you warm the brads with your Heat Tool, they slide right into the candle. I also used Brown 1/4" grosgrain, gold cording and the Apple Cider Designer Series Double Sided Paper. (Try saying that fast 3 times in a row.) I have it on a long oval tray with chunky great smelling potpourri and since I'm cooking this year, it looks like I get to put it on my table! Send me an e-mail with questions or comments.
