Hi everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Today I have a card using the Kimono Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs … just love this dies. I die cut the outline die using gold card and then the solid kimono from red. Before adhering the gold outline to the solid base I used white ink over the red card to give a mottled look.

While looking for my oriental papers I discovered some old gold stickers and found these oriental script stickers in my stash so decided to use those on my card.


Here is the inside of my card. In the top left hand corner I added more stickers as well as the sticker border. The sentiment is a stamp I have had for years.

That's awesome. Love the effect of the die layers for the kimono.

very cool one to the effect of dabbing the white on the red to create depth and pattern on the kimono
