Or the Sakura is in bloom...as they say in Japan :)
Spring is especially beautiful in Japan and is widely celebrated. What better way to herald the new season than by making a card (at least that is how a crafter thinks)!
Spring is the season for new beginnings and the card today is my first attempt at making a tunnel card and not surprisingly, I like it. It is very easy to make too!
The stamp is Magnolia Tilda which I colored with my copic markers ( the collection is growing, YAY !!) The traditional Japanese doors (Shoji) were easy to make with the square dies. I used the Origami paper that one gets in the 100 Yen shops and I think it works perfectly for this card.
I used quite a few different dies - the Spellbinder nestabilities, Memory box etc. The flower on the vine is not a part of the die, it is from the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch.
Since this is a tunnel card, the place to write a message is at the back.
I wanted to show that despite the 3-D effect, the card is not quite thick and can be easily mailed. The recipient can pull the sides a bit to make it deeper.
