Something a bit different...
Hope this post works, as I've scheduled it.... we're hopefully getting out and about early this morning... my lovely OH has a few days off work, so we're making the most of it! Hope the warm weather lasts, though we could do with a bit of sunshine to go with it! Today has been cloudy mostly, but HOT!
Anyways, I just thought you may like to see another type of card I make.... this one doesn't have an image near it and no colouring! But it is lovely to do and uses Japanese Washi papers, which I actually bought when I was in the US, but you can get from here. The purply card is also different - not bazzil, but I can't remember it's name... sorry. It has a silky finish.
Now the little squares (1" x 1") are cut from card, then padded with very fine wadding... then covered with the washi paper, which is tucked around the back (kind of like making a bed!), and stuck down with DS tape. I then assembled nine together into a square, and put them on black cardstock, then onto the purply card. I've tried to show you the depth of the squares, they are actually slightly squashy!
I really love this Japanese paper.... it's used in their traditional origami and has some luscious colours.
Anyway, thought you may like to see my 'different' card making! Hope you like
Hugs and Happy Crafting
