WCMD Challenge #1: Japan
For my first WCMD challenge I'm answering Nichole's 1st of 4 challenges here to create a project that is inspired by either the colors, the design or the themes that are prominent in the Japanese culture. As usual, she has some fabulous prizes up for grabs!!! For my kimono card I had to research kimono folding again (I'd made several kimono cards in the past as I've had two former employers with Asian ties) and I found this video on YouTube, so followed it for my card. I'll simply refer you to Michelle's excellent instructions on her video, as she did a fabulous job. Two things I would mention: I used Papertrey Ink's Scor-Tape (found here ) to attach both my origami DP and my ribbon, which made this soooo easy to create. Secondly, remember to stamp your sentiment low enough on the inside so it won't show above the neckline of your kimono when closed! That's it! Have a fun WCMD everyone!!!
