Arigato (Thanks card)

Hi! I've been busy on my work since May has begun. :(
But I do wanted to entry the 'GoGreen' challenge of the Hero Arts, this week. Because I always think and do for saving energy.
So I took 2 hours only tonight for making a card by using wrapping papers for the flowers, the confectioneries' package or wrapping paper, calenders, A4 size envelopes which I received and kept for recycling.

This is the card, 'Arigato (Thanks card)'.
The Asian Frames is actually a left over items. (I made it before, but I didn't use it.)
The Dots and Flowers was Heat embosseing with white powder on a flower photo calender of 2008, the washi papers that are red, dark purple, and black are the Japanese Sweets's packages. I rolled up and made them like sticks. (Only red paper was heat-embossed with gold.)
The image of this design is 'hair accessories'. The Asian Frames is likened to a chignon cap, and 3 rolled paper sticks and a yellow paper are likened to ornamental hairpins.

  1. Lovely! The hairpins are a great idea!

  2. Suzz, thanks so much for your generous comments.
    I'm sorry my RES was delayed.

  3. Hi Tomo. Thanks for visiting my blog. I've been popping in and looking at yours for a little while but not made comments. I see that you have listed teddybear making as one of your interests. I too make Teddies... but not for a while now as cards have taken over. but I have about 15 teddies I made sitting on my dresser in my bedroom that I have made.

  4. FANTASTIC cards. Thanks for visiting my blog
