Crafter's Companion - Kanji Stamps

Crafter's Companion has new Kanji stamps this week. I thought it would be fun to use these stamps on gate fold cards (I made 4 different cards that I'll be posting this week), which were super-easy to make using the Ultimate tool. I usually avoid these types of cards because it's difficult to match the fold, but the Ultimate tool matched everything up easily. I covered my cardstock base in Asian-inspired papers. I stamped the Kanji background onto vellum and then mounted it on patterned paper. I attached it to one side of the gate gold card.


I decorated the inside the same way. Hubby is always looking for "flat" thank you cards. He means ones without a lot of embellishments. I added a stamped "Thanks" to the inside of the card. With the patterned papers and stamped images, I don't think this card needs anything else, so I'm happy and hubby is happy.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge
1. Divas by Design #18 - new beginnings and/or thanks

Happy Crafting!
