Paper Cranes

I made this for the Torendi challenge. We were supposed to get inspiration from the photos and create a project. I think I got to Torendi through EAD Designs.

Anyway, I've had this paper with the lotus blossoms for a while and I wanted to make a simple, classic card. When I looked at the inspiration photos, for some reason I thought of a Japanese wedding and I know paper cranes are part of the tradition. I knew I had the paper cranes on Wild Card™, so that's what I used!

I made them different sizes and flipped one of them to make them all a little different. I ran the cranes through my Cuttlebug™ with the A2 D'vine Swirls Emboss Folder™. Then I added some ribbon and stamped it with my Hero Arts™ stamps.

I made the envelope to match and didn't match up the edges like one normally does so that it could look a little more like origami.

I hope you're having a wonderful day!
