We’ve recently added some new papers, tissues and cardstocks to our collection available instore. I love making cards for any and all occasions; sometimes I like to send cute handmade cards to pen pals instead of a plain old letter. I used some of the new Japanese Decorative papers and Cardstock to make a bunch of different cards this week.
There are different ways to add a little something extra personal to your cards. You don’t have to stop decorating at the card. I added custom envelop liners, one with some washi tape bunting to one to match it’s card. I decorated the cards using washi tape, paper punches, rubber stamps and a hand cut silhouette detail. I used (from left to right) the Kin Sunago Teal, Peacock, and Sudare Aurora White for these cards.
I love the pale confetti bits and shimmer in the Sudare Aurara White.
I decorated the front of the envelopes for these cards. I also made a mini sized card to give a friend in person (it’s not a mailable size). Our blank Table Setting Cards with a Bitty Bags (both available instore) make a great mini card and envelope set. I use our Flora and Fauna stamp set, stickers, rubber stamps and paper cutouts to decorate. The paper I used (from left to right) Kin Sunago Azuki, Roketsu Gold, and a mix of all the new papers for these cards.
I think the Roketsu Gold is beautifully simplistic. I didn’t want to add too much to this card and mainly let the paper speak for itself.
I decorated the flaps of the envelopes for these cards. For one I used a different coloured paper with a new Vintage Letterpress stamps to match it’s card. I added some new stickers to the flap of the other envelope for a little extra sparkle too. I used (from left to right) Imaizumi, Pearlized Filigree on Champagne, and the Tanabata Cardstock for these cards.
The Imaizumi is great if you’re looking for a pearlized white paper with an organic woodgrain/rippling water effect. It’s one of those papers that it easy to match if you just wanna add a little bit of decorative paper to your card.
