Another project I wanted to complete during the National Scrapbook Day crop I attended was a birthday card for my sister.
She has always liked lanterns and did decorate a few rooms with Asian lanterns. She also recently went on a trip to Morocco and hand carried back a brass ceiling lantern, something like this one.
I stamped the string, lanterns and cords onto my background paper. I then stamped the lanterns onto patterned paper and paper pieced the lanterns and popped them up on the card. I added some Glossy Accents and fine glitter for some sparkle.
I was excited that Paper Secrets had their first card sketch, and really wanted to enter their challenge.
I rotated the sketch 90° so the lanterns could hang horizontally. I replaced the three strips with three strands of lanterns.
We played a bingo game at the crop and I won some Authentique Seasons: Summer Paper. I thought the colors were perfect so I used that instead of the papers I packed. My neighbor at the crop gave me a mini clip which I added to the front of the card. Things always change when you are at a crop.
Here is a peek at the inside of the card.
I gave the card to my sister right after the crop, so I took these kind of dark photos using my iPhone at the crop.
I'm entering this at:
