Christmas Luminaria

Using the Fancy Favor Bigz xl Die and the Extra Large Scallop Circle Punch I was able to make luminaria for the holidays in a snap.  I am also going to be using these in my powder room in place of lit candles, and they would also be cute as a night light for children.  Inside I placed a battery operated tea light, so there are no worries about forgetting to blow out a lit candle.

I cut a 6 x 12 piece of Real Red Cardstock with the Fancy Favor Die.  Before I put the box together, I punched a scallop circle on each side and using pieces of 3 x 3 vellum cardstock  I stamped one side with the Christmas tree, and the other with the reindeer.  Using the vellum allows your images and the light to show.  For a little extra adornment I used rhinestone brads around the scallop circle.

To make the luminaria I used the following:
Cardstock:   Real Red #102482, Vellum #101856
Stamp Sets:  Dasher #116816, Snow Swirled #111690
Ink:  Garden Green #102272, Early Espresso #119760
Embellishment:  Rhinestones #119246
Punch:  2 3/8" Extra Large Scallop Circle #118874
Accessories:  Big Shot Die Cutting Machine #113439, Extended Cutting Pads #113475, Fancy Favor Bigz xl Die #115965
