Paper Lanterns for the New Year

Hello. Hetty here and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. Now we are only  a few days away from the New Year, so i had to come up with a new year card for you. I made these paper lanterns with the snowflake background stamp.

You find a complete picture tutorial on my Craftchaos Blog, here I will explain a little too. First I stamped  the image with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. The embossed flakes work as a resisit and when I colored the paper with blue distress ink, the snowflakes were popping up. Then I cut out the lanterns with a circle and an oval die. The shapes where run through a crimper and little strips of paper where added on top and bottom of the shapes. The tassels I had in my stash and where ready made and just perfect for my card. The background of the card is a now embossing folder from Stampin Up! and the sentiment for the New Year can be found here as Holiday Greetings.

Leaves me to wish you all a very Healthy, Energetic, Peaceful, Loving and Creative New Year!
