I love to challenge myself, and this theme did just that! I rarely work to an 'oriental' theme, despite owning a few suitable stamps, but just LoVe the way this card turned out.
I made some red and gold paper using starburst stains and some plain copier paper then made a little folded pocket for the front of the card. I wanted to include some origami in my piece. The tiny book inside doesn't contain a message yet, that will be added when I send the card as this could be for a birthday, get well or just to say hello! My good friend Sue (who swanned off to CHA this week ;) gave me the japanese text a while back so thanks Sue :) And enjoy CHA; I'm looking forward to your blog posts :)
Head on over to The StampMan Challenge blog to see more ideas for this theme, and to join us with this challenge :) Happy Crafting!
