Christmas Lantern Slimline

 Hello Heartfelt friends!

Card size:  3 7/8 X 7 3/8”

Cut card base by folding white cardstock in half lengthwise, placing the outer die of the Slim Elegant Rectangle over the left fold letting it overhang fold by about 3/8”.  Cut a red decorative front repeating the same process. Then glue it to the card base.

Cut the decorative part of die from white and from gold, glue them together offset then cut away the center curves to match card base (the cut will be covered with ribbon or cord). Shorten the center die cut, cut 1 white and 1 gold, and glue together off-set.

Stamp lantern using black, die cut, color then pop up in the center of the card.

Stamp poinsettias using Vermillion, sponge with carnation, die cut then sponge edges with vermillion (and backs of blossoms as well). Glue 2 together then insert gold stamen.

Tie cord on if it hasn’t been done and make several loops of cord (like a bow) on the left side then hot glue in place. Hot glue flowers to the card around the lantern.

Add gold half-balls to the card.


Ephesians 2:1-5
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body[a] and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.[b] But[c] God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—
