Oriental Lady

I made this for a friend, who loves oriental cards. I was lucky to have a cd that had oriental backgrounds, so printed one off. The picture I found while surfing the net. Layered onto gold mirror card, but embossed by using fiskars texture plates. The flowers are die cuts using the Cuttlebug machine, coloured with Whispers pens and then varnished with Anita's 3-D varnish. Placed on red polka dot ribbon. To finish off the effect I used a small red ribbon bow.
Oriental cards are great for greetings, you can also use them for men by using dragon themes. I hope to be able to place a male design on the blog when time allows.
Happy Crafting

What a pretty card. I love the image of the woman, so beautiful and elegent looking. The flowers on your ribbon add just the right touch. Have they been glittered or glazed? I cant really tell from the photo. It's a beautiful effect either way.

I can vouch for how stunningly beautiful this card is in real life, because I received this delight for my birthday from Holly and I can tell you I gasped when I opened. Thank you so much I will keep it forever.
