Nearly forgot about his card. I've used the Far East DCWV pad and a decoupage kimono that came with a QVC kit. I've also utilised a Fiskar template for the leaf and matted it with metallic silver using the same paper.
It gives it a subtle look, you can almost miss them but don't blink ! LOL There are chinese lettering peel-offs on the right top corner of the card.
Finally I brushed lightly with my finger with a silver buffering cream all around the card.
This is one of my first attempt at making cards ! As you can see I went for textures. I used a DCWV cardstock and Fiskars texturing templates (my arm still aches LOL) with the widget you swirl around applying pressure.
The stamp is from The Angel Company. They have lovely stamps and I'm sure I spent a fortune on them.
I used sand paper to get the embossed image to 'pop' and used the cardstock leftover on a chipboard.
I thought I would start my new oriental card making blog with one of my favourite cards I made last year for an online challenge. I used a QVC kit that is no longer available but I'm glad I went for it.
There's a bit of everything on this card: stamping, quilling, embossing, decoupage and I even added some glossy accents to the round image of cherry blossom trees.
I was so proud of it, I sent it to Dawn Bibby for her birthday. I really like how everything coordinates.
