Kimono Gate Fold Card Using Cricut Pagoda

Greetings from Jakarta, Today's card is a gate fold Asia theme. I used one of the kimono cuts from the Pagoda Cartridge as well as the origami paper for the under layer. I used the Asian Cuddlebug folder Screen to emboss the yellow panels and added some printed ribbon to keep the card tied closed

Night Market in Hong Kong...using Pagoda and Street Signs

Welcome to Wednesday--today I have a layout to share.
If you ever get to Hong Kong--you must got to Stanley Market, Ladies Market, Jade Market, and the Night Market for some shopping--It's a little crazy but tons of fun--
In this simple layout I used Cricut Pagoda for the lamps--combined solid card stock with some cotton paper and oragami paper to give it that true asian touch. I used Cricut Street Signs for the letters. I also sprayed the base with walnut ink for a 'street' feel.

A little Asian Doll using Cricut Pagods

Good Monday to you all. I am getting ready to head to bed as you all in the USA are getting up. My internal clock is all out of wack and I have a feeling it will be for the entire month of April. Got to pay the bill--Right!
Today I am kicking off my two week Asian, one week NYC business trip with a simple card using Pagoda and origami paper. I tried cutting the origami paper with the Cricut with little to NO success--so you may have to use the old fashioned way if you want to use it! I simply sliced a bit off the bottom and applied a strip of pattern paper to the bottom edge. On the doll I added a few black pearls and stitching for definition. For the black background I used one of the textured Cuddlebug Folders from the Asian bundle.
