Shine Brightly

I made this Card for my friend for the Chinese New Year Celebrations. I am late, but I am sure she will appreciate the thought. By the time I thought of how great the Lunar Lanterns stamp set from Lawn fawn is and I ordered it etc, it was late :( But now that I have the stamp set in my hand, I should be on time for next year :)

I stamped the Lantern images on the white card stock and on the patterned paper, cut it out and added them on top of the stamped image. These lanterns have such well defined lines that it was breeze to cut them out. The picture is not the best, the card has a soft pastel look IRL.


I also made her this small Origami Box filled with some Hershey's kisses. I paper pierced this lantern image as well. :)


I did this card for the following two challenges,

1) Lawnscaping Challenge #4 - Paper Piercing

2) Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Techniques Week: The Paper Piecing Challenge

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you checkout the Lawnscaping Challenge blog. Lawn Fawn are really neat. These lanterns were so easy to cut out.

Supplies:
Stamp - Lawn Fawn Lunar Lanterns
Paper - PTI White and Kraft CS, Crate Paper and MM Patterned paper
Ink - Memento Black
Other - SU Scallop Punch, Corner Rounder, Pearl Embellishment
