Here is the first challenge on this blog. The theme of this one is "Kimono". Please join me and submit any type of artwork that contains a kimono. Folded, stamped, digital, painted, etc. New artwork or old artwork that you still have laying around. Anything goes!
Entries will be accepted through Dec 2nd. Please use the linky at the end of this post to add your submissions. Winner of this challenge will receive a grab bag of 6 unmounted rubber stamps. Grabbag will include 2 Christmas stamps, 1 birthday stamp, 1 corner stamp, 1 texture stamp and 1 autumn verse stamp.
There are no fancy folds in this tutorial. Also, this card can be made with your scrap pieces! Yea!
Scraps of cardstock cut to the sizes below. I used scraps from previous projects for the sample that had already been colored.
2 pieces of cardstock that are 11" X 2 1/2"
1 piece of cardstock that is 4" X 5 1/2"
1 piece of cardstock that is 10" X 1 3/4"
1 piece of cardstock that is 9" X 1"
Scrap of Ribbon
1 embellishment (button, charm, flower etc)
Adhesive of choice
Fold each long strip of cardstock in half. Fold the rectangular piece in half so it is 2" X 5 1/2".
Slip one of the longest folded pieces into the 2" X 5 1/2" piece, centering it and glue it into place.
Slip the other longest folded piece over the 2" X 5 1/2" piece, aligning it with the first long piece and glue it into place. Now you have the basic kimono shape. Se it aside.
Take the 1" wide piece and slip it over the 1 3/4" wide piece and glue into place. Wrap and tie the ribbon around it.
Slip this piece over the top of the kimono that you set aside earlier and glue into place.. Add the embellishment of your choice.
If desired, round all edges. Voila! A simple kimono card using scraps.
