Thanks for stopping by again. Today I'm sharing the other two cards I sent to Zoe for our crafty swap. I decided to go with an Asian theme for these and I hope Zoe likes them.
First up is the card I made featuring Yumi with Fan...
I'm so happy with how this turned out, especially her coloring. The contrast with her coloring and the beautiful dark blue washi paper is amazing. I actually started to make this card a while ago, but never got the chance to finish it. No time like the present right?! (hehe) The sentiment is from Island Scrapbooking and instead of coloring it I left it white. If Zoe likes she can color it or leave it plain, it still looks terrific. Here is what the back looks like...
|Happy Birthday, Enjoy!|
As you might have guessed this is not an ordinary card, it can be used as a gift card holder or if Zoe chooses to she can add a tag or note inside the pocket. Another sentiment from Island Scrapbooking and a punched sakura flower with a handwritten sentiment round this one out. How about a close up of Yumi?...

I had a lot of fun with her reddish-orange hair. Especially love the contrasted a lot with the darker colors around her. Next up is the last card I made for the swap, another ACAS (Asian Clean and Simple) card and this time I used Fumi with Gift. What better image to use but her for a birthday card right?!

I used two different sheets of washi paper for this one, a Spellbinder die and some Island Scrapbooking accessories (sentiment and flowers). I used Copics and a white gel pen to color her outfit including the gift she is holding. For more of a girly touch I added the pearl swirly gems. That is another element I am learning to love. Here is a close-up of Fumi with her big baby blues...

I also included this card because, well she lives in Australia and I thought this would be a fun card to share with her. And there you have it! I truly had a great time and I hope that they start it up again. Thanks again to Sandie for organizing it and to Zoe for being a great swap partner!!
Thanks for stopping by! TTFN!!
