I used Taylor’s great sketch for inspiration.
I loaded up my acyclic block with several of the stamps in the Magnificient Asian Backgrounds set and stamped on my blue card base. I used the man and woman from Oh Happy Day Asian Flair as my main image. For the life of me, I couldn’t find any Asian themed paper in my stash. I scoured the craft stores for the Die Cuts With a View Far East Stack, but no one had it. I finally found origami paper at Michael’s that worked. It’s a great value and the pack has several designs and colors. I know I’ll use them for many more projects. The paper is quite thin, but I like that it doesn’t add too much bulk to the card. I tend to pile on the layers and embellishments, so anything that adds some ‘bang’ without pushing the card past the First Class postage limit, is a plus.Image Detail
I paper pieced the outfits with more origami paper. Now that I look at the man, he looks like he’s wearing an Elvis styled jump suit! LOL. Oh well, Elvis is one of my favorite musicians and is associated with lots of Vegas weddings.
