Asian Themed Birthday Card by Chris

I decided not only make a gatefold card, which I haven’t done in a while, but also, to use my neglected Copic Markers. I had a free digi image already printed and some paper that had an Asian flavor to it—a perfect match.

I started with a 5.5 x 12 inch piece of plum Bazzill Card Stock and scored it at 2, 4, 8, and 10 inches with my Scor-Pal and creased the folds. On the front panels I layered black Card Stock (1 ¾ x 5 ¼ inches) and decorative Card Stock (1 ½ x 5 inches). Inside I put another piece of decorative Card Stock (3 7/8 x 5 7/16 inches). All the decorative panels were edged with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

I colored the geisha; then hand trimmed her and mounted her with my Zig Glue Pen onto some black Card Stock, which I also hand-trimmed with my Cutter Bee Scissors. She was mounted with Pop Up Glue Dots on a two-layer panel. The black piece is 3 1/8x 4 ¼ and the plum piece is 4 1/8 x 3. Using my ATG, I glued one half of the panel she was on and set it on the left front of the card. To finish the card I added some red Twinkle Jewels (Skittles) on the front panel, and used one of my Parisian Accents from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities set to cut a black Card Stock label for inside. The sentiment was printed on my computer using a free font.

The geisha girl is colored with:
