Asian Inspired

I love cherry blossoms. I'm drawn to pictures, paper, stamps and anything else with their image. Even the header on my blog has cherry blossoms. Today's SCS featured stamper Birgit had so many gorgeous cards, but I just couldn't take my eyes off of this cherry blossoms one. My card plays off the branch and flower design, but I used a different frame, layered DP and vellum for subtle background design and used leaf branches with Prima flowers. The sentiment is stamped on Far East paper and the edges and flowers sponged for extra dimension.

I couldn't pass up CASing a cherry blossom card without adding some cherry blossoms of on my own, so I decorated the inside of the card with the Artfully Asian stamp and Far East DP.  

Supplies (All supplies are Stampin'Up! unless otherwise noted):
  • Stamps: Wonderful words, Artfully Asian
  • Paper: Pretty in pink, chocolate chip, vellum, Far East DP by Die Cuts With a View
  • Ink: Chocolate chip
  • Accessories: Prima flowers, ribbon, silver chord, Pretties kit
  • Tools: Little Leaves Sizzlits, Bigz Top Note die, Martha Stewart border punch

  1. This is gorgeous! Don't you just love Biggan's work? She is one of my favorite paper craft artists on SCS. She is just so creative. I love how you decorated the inside of the card too. So pretty and elegant.
