Had a vision for this card as I wanted to incorporate some beautiful patterned paper that was sent to me by Michelle a Stamping Sister who was at that time living and working in Japan. I wanted this card to have an oriental feel to it but unfortunately my first attempt just didn’t live up to my expectations.
Just didn’t look right at all – was it because I had offset the right hand greeting past the edge of the card or was it the base cardstock in white. I decided to change both and see what the outcome was.
Ah … that’s much better and more like what I envisaged though the photo doesn’t show the gold metallic cardstock up as well as it should.
To give you an idea of the beautiful paper, here is a close up picture.
Isn’t it gorgeous!!
