Hello! Hello! It seems strange to me to be posting Christmas cards when I've been waiting so long for spring to arrive, but here you go, a Christmas card for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge.
There's nothing like the warm glow of a lantern so I dug out a bunch of Gina Marie Designs dies that my dear friend Marcia gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago.
This lantern die from GMD is so pretty and I'm hoping someone can inspire me with different ways to use it.
The Pine Needles from Gina Marie Designs pairs perfectly with the lantern and the Stitched Bow from Memory Box is like the cherry on top!
While I had my dies out, I made a second one because I came up a little short on Christmas cards last year and I'm hoping to be ahead of the game for this year.
I wanted to see what a black lantern would look like. I used the same pine and bow dies, but placed them at the bottom of the lantern for a completely different look. The frame is from Sue Wilson Designs Australian Collection Background Die.
I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Christmas Kickstart Challenge ~ Delectable Die Cuts
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by!
