Marks Finest Papers- April Blog Hop- LATERNS



Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

April Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are


Today's featured stamp set:
April 17
Lanterns


Here is my take on our featured stamp set.  I did some stamping on designer paper and
gold embossing for all the images.

I wanted the lanterns to be "floating" so I used various thickness of foam tape
 (easy to so just place two or three pieces on top of each other). I added some ivory and gold bakers twine to make them look like they are hanging.  This is a great card to place a note of encouragement.



Here are the other stamp release blog hop dates.
