  • Asian Spring Card

    Designed By Dana DeCarlo

    Here’s a pretty card to celebrate spring with an Asian flair. Tip for Success: Applying frosted white ink over your stamped images lets you create a subtler, softer look.


  1. Use the magenta/pink print paper to make a top-folding card.
  2. Cut a piece of lime paper slightly smaller than the front of the card. Lightly cover the top portion of the dry embossing folder with lime green ink. Place the lime paper in the center of the folder, lime portion facing up, and run through the machine. Heat set the ink. Use the Parisian edger punch along the bottom of the paper. Adhere this piece to the front of the card.
  3. Trim a 1½” wide piece of brown craft cardstock to the width of the card. Use the smaller circle punch to make two notches on the top and bottom of the strip as shown. Wrap the pink string around the notches several times, adding a button before tying a bow. Adhere this to the card front.
  4. Punch a large circle from the pink cardstock. Using pink ink, stamp the branch image several times on the circle to create a tone-on-tone background. Using a chalk applicator, lightly brush frosted white ink over the pink images. Stamp the branch again with brown ink. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set the entire image. Glue in place.
  5. Add sequin flowers and gems.
  6. Stamp “ENJOY” onto white cardstock using brown ink. Cut out each individual letter, ink the edges with brown ink, and fan around the bottom of the circle. Glue in place. Finished Size: 4¼” x 5½”
