This tent fold card measures 6.1/2"x  6.1/2"(16.5 cm x 16.5cm ) when completed. Taking the white cardstock make the tent fold card base. Using the yellow cardstock cut a little smaller for the matting. Taking the green cardstock, cut this to 6 " x 6 ".  Find the pink background design paper in the paper collection, cut this a little smaller than the green cardstock. Taking the mask and the modeling paste, apply to the design paper. When the paste is dry ink the edges with the Mustard seed distress ink. Add a touch of green on the letters with the Thyme ink (green).  Adhere all the layers to the card base with glue or tape, except the top layer. This is done with double dots or foam double-sided tape to give height. To make the three lanterns, use the white card stock and stamp with the gold embossing powder, make six. You will find the petunia basket stamp and die in the Classic Petunia Bouquet sets. When die cutting the image, cut a few extra for each basket so the lantern will become a chipboard when all the layers are adhered together. Adhere the fancy string to the back of the card front and to the placement of the top of the lantern.  Adhere the lanterns in place with double dots and glue. Make the flowers and leaves by stamping with the black archival ink, die cutting then shaping.  Apply the Lettuce Entertain You prills to the flower centers. When dry adhere in place to the lanterns with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. The leaves are snipped so they become separate leaves then they are tucked in under the flowers and adhered in place with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. Taking the bling border trim so it can be laid across the join in the lantern.  Taking once again the yellow and green cardstock die cut the Aloha so this forms also a chipboard tittle. Adhere all the layers together then  to the card front. Apply the crystal lacquer to the top layer to finish the card. Put aside to dry.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a little mixed media  on this card. Quite simple but fun. Of course you can adapt and go crazy...what ever takes your
Have a scrappy inky fingers day....till next week.
