I made the base from red card, as red is considered a lucky colour in China. The cue word over at Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#80 is RED, so I'm submitting this card to the challenge. I stamped the oriental character image in bold black - I've no clue what the characters mean. I die cut a panel of double sided adhesive attaching one side to to white card and on the other I place a black oriental peeloff. I added gilding flakes in gold (with a touch of silver) to the adhesive panel. I love the effect that this gives. I finished the front with a simple birthday sentiment. I attached the gilded panel to the card with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a panel of white card and on it I stamped the same oriental characters in red and added a fun greeting.
I really like the cards that the rest of the team have made - from cute and fun to elegant - all with the oriental theme! I've not been on my blog much lately - details will follow soon! That's all for now, see you soon.
