Chinese Lanterns, with embossed background.
by Pam Simpson

Pam here today, I have created  an open card  with  "Hello" sentiment, which you can personalise inside with a greeting.


How delicate are these pretty "Chinese Lanterns" from Poppystamps.  I have placed them onto my embossed background. this is framed with a  frame I found in my bit box.

How I created my embossed background..using "Brilliant Leaf Frame".


Card size 6"x 71.2" I taped this in place..next ran through my die cutting machine! using a silicone/rubber mat you use to emboss your dies.


This is how it came out of my machine. I decided not to add any colour! as I wanted my Chinese Lanterns to be the focal point of the card.


White cut out of these Chinese Lanterns have been adhered as shown, then I then coloured in each cut out using my Pro Marker pens.


Then I cut these again in green card and adhered onto the whit ones on my card. 


Next, my bit box frame I added orange detail with a pro marker, adhered flat to make a frame.  Sentiment also by Poppystamps with shadowed green Hello die cut. Foliage "Perfect Pine Needles", hessian bow cut with "Bow and String" die. added some dried foliage from a tree! no idea what though.

Pretty sequins are from https://birchpressdesign.com/No-So-Heavy-Metal.html    

   Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Beautiful card!

Hi Pam, This card is amazing !! I adore the embossed leaf die for the background, how effective is that, then the amazing chinese lanterns, these are so, so pretty, I absolutely love these. I adore your foliage and your hessian bow adds an 'earthy' feel to the card, and finished off with the beautiful frame and sentiment. Amazing !!
