Kimono Thank you

These Kimono thank you cards were fun to make, even though they took some extra time...I worked with small pieces of fabric because if the fabric is too big it bubbles up on the card stock and it is difficult to pull it away from the card stock since the glue from the xyron is very strong...but work slowly and it will turn out great.

This is the recipe:

Stamp sets: Hearted Thanks and Bouquet Thanks purchased at Michael's...thanks for your kindness (unknown)...Chinese calligraphy Background from All Night Media.

Card stock: Whisper White from Stampin' Up and assorted scrap pieces.

Markers: Assorted Colours.

Additional Accessories: Gold Cording from Stampin' Up...Kimono fabric from Joannes Fabrics...Dimensionals and Spritzer Tool from Stampin' Up...Xyron Machine.

When you make these you don't need a lot of fabric...I had about half a yard and a lot left over...I will make some other cards with it next week or use some for a class...put 8 or 10 of these in a gift box and give it as a hostess thank you...the fabric gives it a different look and nice dimension.

After you cut out the Kimonos...use the stampin' up Dimensionals to raise them up off the card gives it a really nice look.

Thanks for stopping by...have a stampin' good day.
