I made two projects, this first one is a card for my granddaughter.
I used Cricut's Pagoda cartridge to cut the doll, the flowered paper was a gift from my son and his wife who live in Tokyo.
They had 2 wedding, a semi traditional US wedding in David's hometown then a real traditional Japanese wedding in Miki's hometown which is where they met at work. This layout is from their Japanese ceremony.
The papers are from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa collection. The kids are both wearing traditional Japanese wedding kimonos. The heart is done with origami, it was very easy to do, here is the link: You Tube Origami heart video
I made the, "Love" with the heart on the end with my We R Memory Keepers Happy Jig.
The hearts are a die cut from a really old set I have and I can't remember who they are from.
