Cherry Blossoms

My newest creation is this Asian themed card in black, red, and gold. Embellished with a layered fan, coin trinket with black ribbon, and pearls.  This card was inspired by an oriental rug that I seen with beautiful cherry blossoms and my love for Japanese designs and style. Over at lisasomerville.com the blogger challenge theme is Travel.


Supplies and Technique:
  • Red Card stock
  • Black textured card stock cut with a Silhouette Cameo using the Sil store design "Lattice Frame."
  • Gold semigloss card stock; embossed with an Anna Griffin designed Cherry Blossom folder by Cuttlebug. The card stock also has an overlay of black paper dye which was brushed on and then wiped off. Embellished with pearls  
  • The fan is made from three layers of card stock and also cut with the Cameo and Sil store design "Flower Fan" and embellished with pearls.
  • The coin is a trinket and is embellished with black ribbon.
