Karate Yellow Belt Card

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Karate Yellow Belt Card.

I made this card for my niece Tea (6), who trains Karate three years. On May 25th 2017, she had her first Karate testing to earn a Yellow Belt. She earned it!! :o)

"Earning a yellow belt in karate signifies that you are not a novice and that you have demonstrated basic knowledge in karate. The standard belt color progression is white -- beginners, yellow, green, brown and black. Some karate schools include orange and blue belts. A yellow belt represents 50 to 75 hours of classwork and three to five months of training. Yellow-belt students are familiar with the etiquette and procedures of the dojo -- training school, and their movements are losing the awkwardness of raw beginners. In some dojos, beginners start sparring at yellow belt."

Tea earned Yellow Karate Belt

To make this card I used a super cute Mama Elephant 'Tiny Ninjas' stamp set. LOVE!!! :o)

I stamped ninjas on a watercolor paper panel and watercolored them using Distress Inks. After drying, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base.

I heat embossed a sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper stripe and trimmed the stripe to get desirable size. I glued the sentiment on a slightly larger white cardstock paper piece, added 3-D foams on the back and glued the sentiment on the card.
