It has been a lovely snowy day here in CNY, a great time for resting and enjoying an unhurried day. Tommorow morning and the rush for work will look completely different, but that can wait till tomorrow!
I've made a couple Japanese motif cards this weekend, both for challenges.
The First Card:
This card was made a for using your oldest stamps "Challenge"
This is a Marks of Distinction stamp from 1986. I also used a paper crimper from the same era.
The Second Card:
This card was for a "New Year Greetings"
I have a friend who is a Japanese language student and I am sure she will enjoy this.
The Kanji writing says Happy New Year.
for the image, I used a 7x7 piece
of origami paper from Amazon, I think this package was under $12.00
I found an image I thought would be perfect for a new year
These are lovely, but for card making a little bit of a challenge due to image size
I also gave the image a coat of Lineco glue, to give it that lacquered look.
I'm entering the Happy New Year Card in
Simon Says Holiday Cheer Challenge
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday,
I have a freebie for you too:
Beautiful, elegant cards Ginny - They may have been more difficult than usual to make, but well worth the journey and effort.
Thank you for the lovely freebie
