Arigato Cherry Blossom Box Card

This Cherry Blossom Box Card is one of 5 SVG cut files from collection called Spring Blossoms found here. Pink textured card stock used for the card base, a Shimmery White card stock used for the contrast.  Cherry blossoms are the same color as the card base. Washi paper used for the box card is from Hanko Designs available on their site here. Add some adhesive pink rhinestones on the Cherry Blossom centers to finish them. Brown card stock is from Core-dinations. Added this project, a Dandelion Designs stamp CL-20 Arigato Set is used. More examples can be found here on her blog. Stamp can be special ordered through Hanko Designs.  Finished box card size is 6.3" x 5.8" flat, 6.5" x 5.8" x 4.5" opened. 
Card stock vellum is added to the front and side panels (not part of the original SVG design). Front flap has the "arigato" characters in Japanese calligraphy on a white card stock cut into a scroll with a tail. Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen is used along the edges of the scroll.  Scroll is attached using mini glue dots.
First panel with Cherry Blossoms and Stamped Arigato girl. This larger Arigato girl fit perfectly in the second box card section. 
Copics used to color:
for her Obi n flowers in her hair: RV10, R81, R85. 
for Face and hands: E11, E000, R20
Paper pieced dress is a Yuzen printed paper from my local Daiso Store.
Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen used on the flowers in her hair.
Second Panel: with Cherry Blossom tree.
Back Panel:
Side view:
Box card back: Stamped sentiment from the Arigato stamp set is perfect in this small frame above a spot for a hand written message:
This is the card flat - normally, this can be sent in an envelope but there are so many flowers, it won't stay quite "flat".
Thank you for stopping by today to visit,  stay tuned for another Spring Blossom project.
