Commissioned Golden Wedding Card - Beryl and Paolo

  Afternoon peeps.  My Card today is a commissioned Golden Wedding card, an order from a lady in my apartment block.  I make quite a few cards for her but they always have to be no bigger than A5.  This time she said she would leave the image to me and also the sentiment on the front and the message inside.  I didn't touch on the size so made an 8 x 8.  She didn't say anything about the size when I took it to her to approve but she didn't want a box made.  I explained it would bulge the envelope out, she said I will be handing it to them so the box will only get THROW AWAY!!!  She adored the card though so that is one consolation!!

I had never attempted this before so I contacted the lovely KATE for guidance.

Candle from Hobby Craft
Image:- Cameo 016 - Fitztown
I printed and coloured the image on my usual card stock.
Graph'It Markers
Photo Copied onto the tissue paper.
Cut out the image leaving a small margin around
Press image onto the candle.  Wrap greaseproof paper or wax paper around the candle over the top of the image making sure there is no creases.
Heat gently until you can see the image goes shiny.
Peel Off's and Lace are from my stash (Make sure they are removed if you are going to light the candle) and not just using it for decoration.
