The next 5 cards are thank you cards that I made for Kazumi Akamine who owns Yui Marlu Japanese restaurant. This is the Japanese restaurant where I go every week, it was called "Sushi Masa". Masa-san sold the restaurant to Kazumi-san last year in October. I have made cards for her before and for one of her nieces who sometimes works in the restaurant. Last week Kazumi-san asked if I would make her 5 thank you cards. She wanted floral and an Asian design. I took them to her today. She said she liked them...we didn't really have a chance to talk because for a nice change, it was busy.
On this card I used some decorator paper. It is double sided so I used both sides.
The next 3 cards I used some origami paper as a layer. I really like this blue combination. It is the same stamp as the previous one.
The butterfly has a tiny pearl sticker in the middle.
I love this one. It is hard to see in the picture. The cardbase is some Japanese cardstock in a wheat color that I've had for some time. The company I got this from was based in Hawaii; unfortunately they are no longer in business. Then I used a dark purple layer and the image is stamped on ivory rather than white. I colored the flower purple. Then the ribbon is a dark (Hunter) green. I stamped the thank you inside the card since I thought if I put it on the outside, it would take away from the design.
