BiriBiri Art Series: Cherry Paper Painting Handmade Card

This Cherry Paper Painting Handmade Card is a sponsored post on behalf of U-CAN. I was sent samples of BiriBiri products to review and was compensated for my time to write this post. All opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.

Woot! So excited to share my fourth and last project from this BiriBiri (Chigiri-e) Art Series. It might be my last project from this series but I still plan on using all my leftovers for other awesome projects. I’m eager to see how far I can go with this technique. I’m loving it and I’m sure I can give it some really awesome use just like I have with washi tape and other supplies! So, don’t go far, I’ll be sharing some new cool projects around here!

Woot! So excited to share my fourth and last project from this BiriBiri (Chigiri-e) Art Series. It might be my last project from this series but I still plan on using all my leftovers for other awesome projects. I’m eager to see how far I can go with this technique. I’m loving it and I’m sure I can give it some really awesome use just like I have with washi tape and other supplies! So, don’t go far, I’ll be sharing some new cool projects around here!

This time I made a cute greeting card. I might have slightly changed the main given card but to make it even more awesome! This Cherry Paper Painting Handmade Card is pretty easy to make and the possibilities are endless. I love working with layers so I incorporated red and black cardstock and also ribbon!

I so love the final result. It got more personality and body. I left it without sentiment because it can be for any occasion even to say Hi!

So, how about starting the tute for this Cherry Paper Painting Handmade Card?

First, If  you missed the first 3 projects: BiriBiri Art Series: Paper Painting Iris Wall ArtCute Bear Paper Painting Wall Art and Geisha Japanese Paper Painting Framed Art and don’t know what BiriBiri is (Chigiri-e), BiriBiri (Chigiri-e) is a new art style from Japan and it consists of cutting and pasting colorful Japanese washi to create images that look like paintings. It was created by U-CAN. U-CAN has aided their customers through each individual’s life-long learning process over the last 60 years. The U-CAN Learning Method (ULM) is a learning platform for BiriBiri techniques to help you develop your artistic style and process. You can watch video tutorials, read easy how-to guides, and ask any questions to BiriBiri teachers online. ULM is available to those who purchase any BiriBiri Project, which includes the ULM and Kit.

Now, Le’s go!

Supplies:

  • Cherry BiriBiri (Chigiri-e) Collage Kit
  • A starter Kit
  • Double-sided tape {both simple and foam}
  • Black cardstock
  • Red cardstock
  • White cardstock
  • Red or black {patterned} ribbon
  • Hot glue gun

Check out this video tutorial so you have an idea of how this works.

Also check out my previous tutorial for more how to details.

So… Just like with all the previous projects, the first step is transferring the design to the given canvas. In this case it was given a folded cardstock, but I used a piece of white cardstock cut in the same size of the card and saved the original for later.

For this you need to use the blue transfer paper with the waxy side facing your board. Use the Clips to hold the design and board in place and draw all the design. You will get your design drawn in blue

Each design has some circles with patterns and number and that the design also has those patterns. That is your reference as for what washi to use on each part of the design.

Then start picking the right paper for each piece of the design and using a slight sharp tool {screwdriver, emboss tool and even the tweezers do} and transfer the design through embossing to the paper. This will leave a mark on the paper that we use to tear the paper.

I started the leaves, first the back one and then the top one. Then the cherry stem and lastly the cherries.

With a brush spread the given glue {diluted 1:1 with water as it’s directed} and place the washi in place tapping with fingers and making air flow away.

There you go! The paper painting is done! It might get a bit dirty but you can use a clean eraser to clean up all the white space.

The basic design is done but now it was time to give the card a real card look.

I cut a strip of ribbon and then made a cute ribbon bow with another strip. Placed the strip of ribbon about ¼ from the bottom and glued it on the back.

Then with hot glue I glued the ribbon bow.

Using as base the size {height and width} of the design cardstock, I cut a piece of red cardstock 1cm larger on both height and width. And then I cut another one with the black cardstock 1cm larger than the red one but cut on fold.

The give card was used to make a white canvas to write in the inside of the black card.

For this I used double-sided tape {simple one}.

Again using double-sided tape I glued the design to the red cardstock making sure it got as centered as possible.

Then I cut a few strips of foam double-sided tape and placed them around the back of the red cardstock.

Removed the backing of tape and glued it as centered as possible to the front of the black cardstock card.

Of course I made sure the card would fit into the given envelope. I love that it has texture. It’s not a plain one. So super cute!
