Chinese Lantern

I'm sharing a card I made this week using a die I chose with a gift voucher I won over in the Poppystamps Challenge recently.
The die is Poppystamps 'Chinese Lantern Stem'.  The orange comes as three solid shapes which I've attached behind the die cut.  It was quite fiddly to get them in the right place, without showing around the black outline.   Next time I think I'll try cutting out the stem in orange as well as black and inlaying the orange pieces.  The tag is two Poppystamps dies from the 'Stitched Main Street' set of dies and I added a black gem to the top.  I used a Creative Expressions embossing folder, 'Rambling Berries' for the background.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  2. A beautiful, elegant CAS card Liz, love that Chinese Lantern die (even if it's a bit fiddly!). I really like the colours too, the orange and black is very striking against the lovely embossed background.

  3. Oh yes, I understand it was not easy to place the orange behind the black on the Chinese lanterns! I've always got problems with such tiny things!
    Your card is just wonderful, Liz! I love the CAS style.
    Hugs, Liv

  5. I've looked at that die so many times and couldn't decide. I love your card and placing it on a tag is a great idea. Didn't realize it was in pieces and was fiddly and I'm not good with fiddly! You did great.
