This card took me 3 days to make. I had a different design in my head using Papers by Catherine, but then I didn't like how it was coming together. Ack! I hope I'm not hitting another slump. So I pulled out my drawer full of Asian stamps, and my large craft keeper of scraps.
I have not made an Asian card in years. Asian themes were so popular when I started stamping, and I loved the elegance of the cards. Then poof! Not so popular. Now I am starting to see it coming back (wahoo!)
I ended up making this card from scraps (I know you are surprised...teeheehee). The rectangles are mounted on dimensionals; the black cs has lots of dimension (but not Bazzill), and the gold cs is muted metallic, The card base is a dark grey cs I've had forever and just wanted to use up. The dp is from a class I taught making a box and 4 coordinating pads to go inside the box. It was a 6 hour class. Very labor intensive. The charm I purchased at a stamping convention many years ago. I now have one left (:
