This brings back wonderful memories to me, because we lived in Okinawa for three years, and our oldest daughter, Tori, was born there. :-D
For my card, I chose Core'dinations Whitewash collection paper, and cut it 5 1/2 x 11, then scored it at 4 1/2, and 9, so there is a 2" flap to fold inside. It has a pretty green inside, and when embossed with the BAMBOO FOLDER the bamboo image is sanded to come through in green.
I also trimmed the right edge with the Martha Steward Deep Cut Lattice Scallop punch.
The fan is cut from the PAGODA Cricut cartridge from Provo Craft. I cut it in white, stamped the leaves with an Inkadinkadoo Asian stamp, and scored the fan lines with my SCORE-IT. I then added Martha Stewart white wedding flowers, and a handmade yellow tassle. Inside are three Kanji words also cut from the PAGODA cartridge, and backed with circles and squares cut with the GEORGE cartridge.
