Today I want to share with you a Friendship card that I did with the Kanji stamps from Crafter's Companion. I love these stamps because the calligraphy images are so simple and elegant. To keep with the elegant theme, I limited my color palette to white, black and gold.
started by stamping the Friendship Kanji in black ink onto white card
stock. I used an oval die cut to cut and emboss it, and then mounted it
onto a scalloped oval using brushed gold card stock.
used tissue paper from my stash, with a simple gold-line rose design. I
crumpled it into a ball, lightly smoothed it, and then modge-podged it
to a sheet of scrap card stock. After it dried, I trimmed it and
layered it onto more of the brushed gold, then black, and then on to a
folded white card base.
I used dimensional's to adhere
the oval kanji image to the card. I added pearls below the image and
reprised them in the lower left corner. The final touch was a narrow
black ribbon, to which I tied a white tassel and a gold heart charm.
I love it! Hope you are inspired to try something similar.
