Metallic Asian-themed greeting card and a giveaway!

Metallic Asian-themed greeting card

Time for another blog hop with the Designer Crafts Connection! This year, Fairfield came out with new yummy metallic colors in their Oly*Fun fabric line. I have an Asian-themed embossing folder that I hadn't used yet, and sure enough the metallic fibers hold the embossing softly, but nicely. I think the pinhole texture of the Oly*Fun is so much more interesting than plain craft foil for adding shine to greeting cards.

I just used everyday double-stick tape around the edges to layer the red and bronze sheets on to black cardstock. Be careful not to let pieces of tape overlap, because that little seam will show through the fabric. I added a rub-on of a cherry blossom branch and glued a coin to the center. Very easy and very pretty!
