Nippon-no Card

I admit.  I'm a sucker for Asian craft stuff.

During the last HSN National Craft Month show, I didn't care for the products by Martha Stewart, Anna Griffin, Becky Higgins, We R Memory Keepers, or any other.  But when I saw this, I knew I had to get it.

I have been busy making wedding invitations for a friend of mine, that I felt I needed a break and do something different.  So after cutting and embossing 160 pieces of cardstock, I decided to make a card with this new find.

I searched my stash for leftover washi paper, and ended up using the ones in blues.  This card is called the Diamonds Kimono Card.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  washi paper, Prima, Making Memories, leftovers
tools:  Janome Sew Mini
adhesive:  Scotch

To sum it up, these cards are easy to make.  The only thing that's tricky is the sewing part.  For this particular card, the Kimono involved 3/4" squares.

I had some leftover washi paper and decided to use a quick A2 card as well.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  washi paper, Recollections, leftovers
tools:  Cuttlebug
embellishments:  pearls
adhesive:  Scotch

I sure am happy.  Now back to the wedding invites.

Happy Easter everyone... 'Til next blog!
