Rice paper is not actually made of rice, but from the papery mulberry plant. It is an organic paper and has varying levels of transparency, depending on the thickness of the rice paper. Rice paper is very thin yet very strong, making it a great paper for decoupage and other paper crafts. If you haven't used rice paper before, you should give it a try. There are so many patterns to choose from!
These sweet baby cards were created with images cut from Stamperia Rice Paper (Baby Boy Rounds) It comes with six circle images in beautiful distressed shades of blue.
For the blue card, I added die cuts from Spellbinders - the baby boy toys and Nesting Blossom. The little hearts are cut with dies from a Jillibean Soup die set, which happened to have the size of heart I wanted to use. Cardstock is from Bazzill Basics. I used Modge Podge to adhere the circle image, but you can use any type of liquid adhesive. Apply it right to the edge for best results....
On the wood backed card I added a leaf die from Elizabeth Crafts. The wheel and baby booties are from a Crafters Companion die set. Wood grain paper is Kaisercraft and solid color papers are Bazzill Basics. Because the rice paper is slightly transparent I adhered it to a cardstock circle of the same size. I contemplated adding a frame but, in the end, decided it was perfect just as it was.
