Christmas Luminary Card

I love the Christmas season but it comes too quickly each year.  I really need to add at least two more months to the calendar before Thanksgiving.  Who would I talk to about that?????   :)

These luminary cards were a big seller at our November 3rd Craft Bazaar.  Somehow I sold my luminary so I don't have one for me right now.  Time to make more!  

This luminary card was designed last year but there were still ladies who wanted to learn to make it this year.  I made it so you could enjoy it all year.  One side has a Christmas theme and the other side has a floral theme.  I made them for my mom and sister last year.  These are wonderful gifts for someone in a nursing facility where candles aren't allowed.  This luminary card is designed to use a battery operated tea light.  I ended up using a larger key charm and smaller red bow...and I also added two more to the bottom of the stem on each of the flowers.  The new Stitched Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon looks really nice on these.
