ODBDSLC285 Rose Lantern

Hi Friends!
Today we are reminding you that it is not too late to join in on the fun with us at the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC285 “Spring Has Sprung-Blooming with Die Cut Flowers” Challenge!  

I decided to create another lantern with roses using ODBD Custom Dies from the April 2017 Release- Luminous Lantern, Rose and Rose Leaves.

We hope you will take the time to check out the rest of my ODBD Design Team Sisters’ blogs and see their gorgeous projects:

Chris   ∙ Diana   ∙ Robin

To create the lantern, die cut four pieces of gray cardstock using the Luminous Lantern Die along with the four sided base, adhere the sides and top together with adhesive and use a temporary adhesive for the bottom (so you can insert the battery operated candle).

To create the roses, die cut two of each petal from the Rose Dies using lilac cardstock, work the paper with a bone folder to break up the fibers and separate the cardstock by pulling the paper apart in half (sometimes this is known as faux suede).  

Assemble the petals (I use hot glue and start from the bottom up) and use just a few petals to create the buds.

Die cut and emboss the leaves using the Rose Leaves Dies and the stem from the Lovely Leaves Dies.

Add the rose and buds to the lantern using hot glue to finish off the project.

Don’t forget- you have until April 30, 2017 to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate (one random participant will be chosen).  

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  We hope you will be able to join us for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC285 “Spring Has Sprung- Blooming with Die Cut Flowers” Challenge!

Hugs and I hope you have a wonderful week, sweet friends!

What a beauty you have created, Julie! I love your lilac rose supported by the vine. Faux suede is one of my favorite techniques when making flowers. I can only imagine how gorgeous this is in real life! TFS
