Beauty of the Season - Lovely Lantern

I'm back again with another release project!  This time I'm using the new Lovely Lantern and Holly & Swirls Die Sets along with some other items from the shop!

I started with a gel print that had blues and splattered on some acrylic paints to give a feel of a snowy evening.  I cut the lantern in gold cardstock, weaved the Holly Swirls through it and added popup tape to all of the thicker lines of the die cut for structure but before I added it to the card, I only took the backing off of the thickest horizontal lines and left it on the vertical ones so I'd be able to slide things under it.

I had a leftover center piece from one of the bulb dies from my last project in yellow so I thought it would make the perfect bulb for my lantern.  I cut a circle from a yellow vellum and slid it under the lantern with a small amount of glue to keep it in place.  Then I added the bulb over it so it was like a glowing light from the bulb.

I added all of my other die cuts using various thicknesses of foam tape and finally stamped a sentiment from the Let It Snow sentiment set and added a few sequins

That's me for today!  Thanks so much for coming and I hope you enjoyed your visit!  If you missed seeing the last week of release projects, please be sure to head back to the previous posts on the blog to see what we've created for you!

Come again soon!
