Here's a card I made for my mom's birthday. I decided to use one of the Asian style stamps the I bought a while ago ... Lanterns stamp by Impression Obsessions, Inc.
Here's a close up of the lanterns. I don't know if you can see the stickles I added on the rope holding the lanterns up and on the 1st and 2nd lanterns ... I find the stickles gives the card a bit of a shine and that extra something :)
I decided to stamp a lantern from the Far East stamp set by Hot Off the Press in the inside of the card, so it would match better. I love it when I have another matching stamp that allows me to do this!
Oh and in that same stamp set, I found this cute little lantern that I just had to use on the back of the card! I really should get my stamp made ... I've been thinking about it for some time now ... for more than 3 years! Yeah, I'm not an impulsive shopper ;)
