Japanese paper and ‘Teta Beta’ butterflies/Japanski papiri i ‘TB’ leptiri

Today I have a special card. It is made out of this handmade Japanese paper. I love this pattern. It reminds me of my grandma and I really miss her.

Danas imam jednu posebnu kartu. Izradila sam ju od ovog ručno napravljenog japanskog papira. Stvarno mi se sviđa ovaj uzorak. Podsjeća me na moju baku, koja mi zbilja nedostaje. 

I decided to make a card with this paper and I used it for the challenge at the Moxie Fab World. The inspirational photo has a blanket that my grandma used to make. Those blankets where really cute.

Tako, odlučila sam napraviti kartu od ovog papira i staviti ju na natjecanje na Moxie Fab World blogu. Inspiracijska fotografija prikazuje pokrivač kakav je nekad radila moja baka. Te su dekice zbilja bile slatke.

I cut out all the pieces and lifted them with some sticky foam to gave my card some more dimension. After that, I added some ribbon and one little white rose. The sentiment means “Forever together”. I thought it is fitting, since I know that one day my grandma and I will be forever together.

Izrezala sam papir u komadiće i podigla ih s ljepljivom spužvom kako bih svojoj karti dala malo više dimenzije. Nakon toga, dodala sam bijelu traku i malu bijelu ružicu. Smatrala sam zgodnim staviti ovaj sentiment jer znam da ćemo jednog dana moja baka i ja biti zauvijek zajedno. 

And one more photo of this lovely paper./I još jedna fotka ovog krasnog papira.🙂

My second card is simple but totally cute. I love those butterflies and you probably already know that.🙂

Moja druga karta je jednostavna ali slatka. Uživam u tim leptirićima, a vi to sigurno već znate.🙂
