Hi everyone, it’s Wednesday and you know what that means… I get to show you some lovely things you can create with your Heartfelt Creations products.
I have a thing for Lanterns and as soon as I saw the lanterns in the new “Festive Christmas Collection” I had to make one using this gorgeous collection.
HCPC 3557 – Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3624 – Festive Christmas Background PreCut Set
HCD 734 – Sun Kissed Fleur Die
HCDP1 246 – Festive Christmas Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Other products: White Card Stock, Velum, Distressed Inks, Metallic Gold Ink, Antique Gold Embossing Powder, Pearls, Lace and Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.
Start by cutting the 4 sides of the lantern out of White card stock. There are a lot of free templates out there. Here is one similar to what I made here. After the sides are cut out, attach together and top with another piece of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection to dress up the top parts of the lantern. Before you glue the lantern closed, stamp your favorite image on velum and emboss with Antique Gold Embossing Powder. After all 4 panels are completed, fasten them to the inside of the body of the lantern so the light glows through. Decorate and of course, don’t forget to add a pretty flower or two! Stamp with metallic gold ink, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set, assemble and finish it off in the center with a sparkly gem!
I hope to see you again soon. I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
