Year of the Ox Sister Stamps

This is the August release for the Sister Stamps Zodiac series. Continuing today will be the Year of the Ox. I chose to make this Lantern Shape card using my SCAL program. The lantern shape is a SVG cut file from Penny Duncan Designs and the file name is called Nunestie Set-3Penny has her blog which can be found here. She has some amazing creations and you will need to check her out.  Paper used is from Recollections Spice Market paper pack.  Gold card stock is from Kelly Papers. Finished card measures 4-5/8" x  4-1/4" (excluding the tassel). 
Gold cord is used for the lantern handle and also is wrapped around the top.
The Ox is stamped using Neenah White card stock, cut out, then popped with foam squares, attached to Recollections Vanilla card stock.
Copic colors used: W1, W3, R30, E30, E31, E27, E34, E44, E71. Cut and pop up with foam squares.
The lanterns as embellishment with the Ox Kanji word cut three times on top of the embossed gold card stock.  The "Year of the Ox" is computer generated using the Chow Fun Font.
