Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek #2: Lunar Lights!

Hello, folks!
Today I'm here to share another Lawn Fawn Lunar Lights project with you!  This time I went with a card project that coordinates with the Chinese New Year treat bag from yesterday! 

The front panel actually started off with three rows of lanterns, but I stamped the top row a little too high, so it looked a little funny.  I tried to salvage the rest by trimming across the second row and attaching the panel to an embossed card base with dimensional adhesive [I like to call 'em "foams"]. :o)  Originally, I was going to attach the three-rows-of-lanterns panel to a smooth, shimmery gold card base, but with the shorter panel, I thought it would be nice to emboss the card base...that way, the embossed pattern gets a bit of a 'spotlight', too. :o) 

I stamped the little lanterns from Lunar Lights directly on the red cardstock panel and also onto cream cardstock.  I coloured the cream cardstock lanterns, trimmed around them and attached them with dimensional adhesive/"foams". ;o)  "Happy New Year" was spelled out with Jessie's ABCs The embossing folder is a Cuttlebug folder that was included in an Asian-themed set [I love, love embossing folders!].

I just wanted to say a big, big *THANK YOU* for the kind words left on yesterday's post!  It's so nice to 'meet' you guys through our love of craft. :o)  I was asked how I made the treat bag from yesterday, so I'll put together a picture tutorial soon!
