Kokeshi Bridge Fold Card

This is the Bridge Fold card I put together for my very, very special friend Lorna who celebrated her birthday earlier this year.

Knowing that Lorna likes kokeshis, I wanted to do an Asian themed card with a paper pieced kokeshi doll. I found a kawaii kokeshi clipart set by Doodles First on Etsy and used Make the Cut design program to render the clipart into a cutting file.

Lala Land die was used to cut the bridge, and background scenic border was cut using Signature Dies' Kyoto Skyscape. Cherry Blossom printed cardstock is from Michaels' Recollections line called "Cherry Blossoms".

View from the top shows how the kokeshi was attached to a strut running inside the "box" of this bridge card.

I added a pocket on the back of the card so I could slip in a gift card and attached my sentiment panel to it. These Bridge Fold cards are so simple to put together and are the perfect choice when you want to create a special card but don't have a lot of time.

You created another amazing keepsake card Eunice. You never cease to amaze me. I'll bet Lorna was head-over-heels with our creativity and gift.
