LANTERN / LUMINARY CARD

There's no time like the present to play with new stuff, and that's what I've been doing! This is a rather unique project because it's not only a lantern/luminary, it also can fold flat to be mailed as a card. While I just used designer paper to decorate mine, it would look nice with photos in honor (or memory) of a loved one, particularly during the holidays. You can see a bit of candle glow in the picture, but I didn't use a real candle. I used a battery-operated flickering tea light. SU products used to create this project include "Urban Garden" designer paper, Vellum paper, Big Shot die cut machine, and the "Birds & Blooms" Sizzix die to create the birds, of course, and the floral-shaped window cuts.
