We've put a kit together containing materials for making Oriental cards. As people may already have Oriental stamps and inks, we've only included papers and embellishments but we do have Oriental stamps to buy separately.
The kit contains some of the embellishments in the Oriental section on our website and is a taster set for them. You can purchase any extra items if you wish to add to the kit later.
The kit is good value as there is more than £14 worth of materials included:
4 x A4 sheets of different Oriental patterned paper (normally £4)
1 x A4 sheet of red card
2 x metres of red eyelash cord
2 x gold cards and gold envelopes with die cut patterns

3 x large style stones (normally 80p)
3 x small style stones (normally 80p
2 x red knot embellishments
2 x blue knot embellishments

1 x double happiness brass coin (normally 50p each)
2 x square brass coins (normally 40p each)
