Moroccan Nights Lanterns Card

by Joanne James13. July 2016 07:00


Today I'm sharing the first of the cards from my recent technique class featuring the Moroccan Suite of products. Each of the ladies received a share of the products in the suite - designer series papers, ribbon and twine as well as the Moroccan Nights stamp set and the aim was to create a trio of cards that showcased each of the elements.

My first card was a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of one of the samples on page 66 of the annual catalogue - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Lantern Trio - The trio of lanterns on the die cut circle are each from the Moroccan Nights stamp set. The intricate detail on each of the stamps means that they don't need any special treatment - they can just be stamped in a single colour and are really effective, individually or when clustered as they are here. I stamped the outer two lanterns first, then the middle one last - this ensures even spacing and that you fit them all onto your diecut circle.

Moroccan Mosaic - The Moroccan Designer Series Paper has a wonderful collection of traditional Moroccan patterns, both in terms of colour and mosaic style - they are very reminiscent of the patterns I saw when I visited Marrakesh a few years ago. They work well both as background papers and as a feature in themselves. This card uses a full size piece with a neutral pattern for the card base and a panel in a bright blue diamond design on the centre of the card.

Washi Tape Wonder - One of the things I love about this card is the way it uses washi tape to add additional dimension to the paper pattern. Blue Moroccan Designer Washi Tape has been wrapped around the top third of the blue-patterned DSP panel to add yet more pattern and interest. My customers are always asking me for suggestions as to how they can use their washi tape and this idea works well where the products are part of a co-ordinating suite.

The addition of some gold metallic foil doily, Delightful Dijon mini striped ribbon and Emerald Envy twine completes this card. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with my card for this week's challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary; until then, happy stampin'!
