Ready for another Festive Friday challenge? What is the Festive Friday challenge? The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity. An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration. To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery. We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and create.
From the Inspo List I chose, Red, Gold, Rabbit, Lantern, and Heat Embossing. I had so much fun making this card.
The lanterns were made by heat embossing using Gold embossing powder on Poppy Parade CS. The designs on the lanterns are from the Decorative Borders stamp set. After the embossing powder cooled down I scored the cardstock using the Simply Scored Tool. I scored it in 1/4” increments then I used the smallest Stylish Shapes circle dies to cut the 3 lanterns. The scored lines help give it some dimension and I think add to make it look more like lanterns. I used the Simply Elegant Trim for the loop on the lantern and also to string the lanterns on. The tassels were made by unraveling the Gold 1/4’ Shimmer Ribbon.
The sentiment is from the Heavenly Hollyhocks stamp set. The sentiment actually says, It’s time to celebrate you. I carefully inked up the stamp to eliminate the “you”. The background seemed a little stark so I embossed it using the Painted Texture 3D folder.
The rabbit from the Easter Bunny stamp set is holding its own lantern. This year is the year of the Rabbit so the Easter Bunny stamp set will be doing double duty for New Years and Easter. The rabbit was colored using Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your projects in the Festive Friday Gallery,
