I was intrigued with the SU Seasonal Lantern when I first saw it in the Holiday Catalog. I just got it and had so much fun putting together a fall themed card great for Thanksgiving time that will be here before we know it!
I am sharing it with the crew over at The Paper Players for
LeAnne’s Harvest Theme Challenge # 362.
I used the gorgeous Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to create a cool fall feeling to the card but the splash of Lemon Lime Twist really brightens up the card. I love to design a card around the colors palette in the paper- makes designing so much easier. I played around with adding in some copper and gold foil but in the end, I went with just cardstock. I cut the Very Vanilla embossed panel to be 3″ x 5-1/2″ with a border of Early Espresso that is 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. I think the embossed panel is a great background for the lantern to sit upon, don’t you?
I can’t wait to make some Christmas lanterns…
