WCMD Washi Flower Card


Hi everyone!  Welcome to Operation Write Home’s World Card Making Day blog hop.  My card today is a simple “thank you” card featuring a flower made from Japanese washi paper.

Washi paper is a kind of fibrous paper, more the texture of handmade paper.  You could also use origami paper to make the flower.  I’m not sure that my card follows any of the OWH sketches, but it is pretty close to Sketch #4 below:

Please be sure to check out my blog post below (Washi Flower Card Instructions) for full instructions on how to make this card.

Supply list:

1 – 6×6 sheet of washi paper or origami paper (not the kind with adhesive on the back)

Cardstock – ivory, green (with light pattern)

Memento ink – I used pistachio to edge the circles and to stamp the sentiment

adhesive – ScorTape and Scotch Quick Dry Glue

8mm pearl sticker

Memory Box fresh foliage die

Cheery Lynn Designs – XMC-5 Scalloped Window Stackers

Ivory sheer ribbon

Paper Smooches “Many Thanks” clear stamp set

I want to thank the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families.   I am grateful for your service and your sacrifice.  It is my privilege to be able to support you in a small way by sending handmade cards so that you can keep in touch with family and friends.  Stay safe and hurry home!
