Happy Monday everyone! Just wanted to pop in and share a card I made over the weekend with my mom. We were inspired by a card displayed at SU Regional training using punches and a crimper to make a paper lantern. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get the name of the artist, so if you know please tell me! When I saw the latest punch art challenge at the Pals Paper Arts, I knew I had to enter this one:
I cut a Very Vanilla circle with my 3" circle die, stamped the spray of Easter Blossoms in Jet Black Stazon and ran it through my paper crimper. The Basic Black Small Tag punch was tucked under the bottom and a scaled down Word Window punched piece was attached to the top with a loop of hemp twine. The Word Window punch was too big so I tucked one end back into the punch, from the top, and punched again giving me a shorter window punch.
Of course, I needed to sprinkle a few Basic Rhinestones to the blossoms as well as a row across the top of the lantern.
They are soooo pretty IRL! To the Crumb Cake base, I added some [retired] Urban Oasis and a punched border of Very Vanilla [non-SU].
The background looked a little plain so I stamped the blossom spray in Crumb Cake and added a sentiment from Bring on the Cake.
I just can't put down those cherry blossoms! So, the inside got some too along with another sentiment from Bring on the Cake. Thanks for stopping by today! Before you go, I would love to know what you think of today's card. Have a great day, my friends!
