Asian Lantern Card

This is another project from collection called Spring Blossoms found here This project is called Lantern Card.  The original size of this card was slightly larger so it was reduced to a A2 size so it can be easily mailedUse a Shimmery Pink card stock for the lanterns. Darice Thin Lines Embossing Folder used on the lanterns for a more realistic look (instead of straight lines). Card base is Recollections Purple, with White card stock, and Black card stock On the right side is decorative Hanko Washi paper found on their site here. Card Stock Vellum is positioned in between the top and card base to resemble a real screen. This was not part of the original design but it looks good.  Gold cord used for the top of the lanterns and tassel tops.
Here's a closer look at the lanterns which are popped with foam squares.
Pink adhesive rhinestones on the Cherry Blossoms:
Trim the lantern tassels and snip them at various width for a more realistic look:
Card inside: a strip of Washi paper for some interest and still some space for a hand written note.
Thank you for stopping by today.
