This Japonism Bundle of products is absolutely stunning.  It was inspired by Japanese Art.  It has a soft pastel hue to it, and can be used to create projects for baby, family, a picnic at the park, flowers, outdoors, etc.

Let’s create a couple of cards using these Limited Edition products from our friends in Japan.

To create these cards, you will need:

Step 6:  Add the gems from the Gallivant Embellishments to the center of the paper flower.

This overall card layout, is my favorite way to create cards.  Using a different paper pack will leave the look changing for each and every card.

We would LOVE to see the cards you create!  Post your projects on social media using #creativememories .

Happy Creating!
