ID: Lantern Christmas
size: 3.5"w x 5"h x 3.5"D

Created: August 27, 2017

My turn on the digital blog at Quietfire  and I'm using an Xmas Lantern digital file that Suzanne recently came out with available on the Silhouette onLine store.. Love the shape. And while making it, I said to myself it would make a great Halloween lantern... (Click HERE to see the Halloween lantern.)

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Noel" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

("Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" 3pce set)

I opened my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software and opened the lantern file. It takes about 1 sheet of 12 x 12 and 1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock. (See below for the layout in SCAL)

I cut everything from white cardstock. Folded along all the score lines. Then inked the lantern sides with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Verdigris". Glued the edge, top and bottom piece to close the lantern.

Painted the top piece with Distress dabber "Black Soot" inked with Versamark and embossed with Distress "Black Soot" embossing powder. I wanted a rough texture. Attached a green/gold narrow ribbon through the peak and adhered to the base of the roof prior to adhering to the lantern. Added some hot glue at the peak to ensure the ribbon stays put and to close up the hole I made...

Die cut the "Noel" from an off white cardstock and adhered to front.

Inked the holly leaves with the sepia and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Adhered to roof and front. 

Added Liquid Pearls "Rouge" generously to create berries. When dry, added "White Opal" dots.



Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Drew a wavy line mimicking the sentiment and cut along the line, then cut to separate the words and adhered parts on the three sides.
