Dreamee Christmas Lantern

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

Has anyone started their Christmas cards yet? We at Dreamees have been making them since May , lol. At the moment we are actually making Christmas cards for us to send to our friends and family.

At Dreamees this week we have released some new Christmas stamps even though I say it myself they are gorgeous, here is the link if you fancy taking a look -

Whats needed :

Dreamees Lantern Stamp
Snowflake stamp
Dreamees Happy Holidays stamp
Kraft Card
Pattern Paper (Various Dreamees CDs )
Gathered Twigs ink pad
Versamark ink pad
Promarkers in green red brown and pale lemon.
Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Embossing Powder

Today I am showing you all a card I have made using the new Lantern stamp available here I think this is one of my faves of the new releases, because you can either do it traditional or modern, I opted for traditional.

I started with a cream card blank, distressed all the edges with gathered twigs distress ink pad, added a matt and layer of kraft card and patterned paper from our christmas cds. I did this with 2 more rectangle pieces of kraft card and pattern paper added those to the base card.

I then stamped the Lantern stamp 2 times available here in versamark heat embossed with bright gold embossing powder onto cream card, cut the main image into a rectangle edged with gathered twigs ink pad and second generation stamped a snowflake stamp around the image. The second image I stamped and embossed I cut out the bits I wanted to decoupage up, and coloured these with promarkers.

I added some red striped ribbon across the layers before adding the topper and a piece of lace too to add a bit more interest. I then stamped the poinsettia s onto spotted paper from Dreamees cds again embossing with bright gold embossing powder. I then added a bow in the same striped ribbon to the top corner of the card. I added the sentiment Happy Holidays as a variation on what I would normally do.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, I certainly enjoyed making the card and writing about it.

Thank you so much for looking.
