I, of course had LOTS of help this morning from Speedy the Cat...He had dragged my gold foil pen and some Treehouse Stamps under the bath mat...I thought, and I thought...And Speedy the Cat hissed at the punches on my wall....and Viola! My punch out Oriental Lady appeared! *I designed her about 6 years ago!
I started off with a 6"x6" inch sheet of double sided paper and folded in the sides. I embossed the fern in gold around the inside flaps and then added the black mats to the folds.
I traced the edges with Gold Foil pen! GREAT idea, Speedy the Cat!!! The outfit was designer paper that I embossed with the fern in gold.
The outside red mat edge is embossed in gold!!!
The lady is punched with 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 1/2" circles, and 1 1/4" and 1 38" squares!

Faith, this one is going into my favorites. I love her little fringe haircut. I am going to have to case this card. My sister's husband is from Japan and I think she would love a card like this. Great job.
