Japanese Thank You Flip Card




While visiting Maui, I had a few minutes to spare so I popped into the Kahului Ben Franklin Crafts store.  I didn't expect to find anything that I couldn't get from the Hilo BFC, but I did!  I purchased a Sizzix flip card die that had sold out at the Hilo store and used it to create this card.  First, I embossed part of the die cut card base with a bamboo embossing folder from Darice.  Next, I cut a second card from a piece of printed Japanese paper and cut it to fit the side of the card that was not embossed.  (Three sides of the printed paper were trimmed to show an eighth-inch border.)  The Japanese lady and cherry blossom branch (Hero Arts set) images were stamped onto marker pen paper, colored with Copic pens, cut out with a circle punch, smudged along the edge with ink, and adhered to the card with pop dots.  Finally, a Japanese character stamp (thank you) was stamped in the small cartouche on the front of the card.  This card was a cinch to make because of the super amazing Sizzix flip card die.  Thank you for visiting this site and I hope that you will return to see what other great items I found at the Kahului BFC and learn what I crafted with them.

You were lucky to get one of the fancy frames flip it dies. Its been sold. Your card turned out really nice and that bamboo embossing folder really added to the base of the card.

Hi Lynn,
OMG, your flip it card is soooo nice. What a coincidence that you and I posted the same bamboo washi paper about the same time. I'm hoping BFC still has that bamboo embossing folder. I want to get it tomorrow. Thaks for your sweet comment on my last post too. And I can't wait to see what you have in store for your next post. Have a great weekend.
