Happy Father’s Day Lantern

4/20/22 Top 3 Winner at Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenges!
4/30/22 DT Favorite Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a cool Father’s Day Lantern box card featuring our Deer Brads, Pine Tree Brads and Sun/Cloud Brads. Yep, you got it… I’ve been playing with my Scan N Cut! I have tons of cut files on my laptop and when I came across this one (looking for a different one, of course), the light bulb came on and I got to work!

I cut the main card base from CutCardStock Basis Red, and all the rest of the pieces from Papertrey Ink Spring Rain cardstock, 80# Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Year Round Messages stamp set in Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink, trimmed it and set it aside.

As I was assembling the layers for the background scene, I added Deer Brads, Pine Tree Brads and Sun/Cloud Brads, and then finished the assembly. I added a jute rope bow at the top and adhered the stamped sentiment at the bottom.

Here are a couple angled shots. The back has a plain panel to write a custom message (if desired) and sign. And of course, this is a box card and folds flat for mailing. ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
