The Last Oriental card.... for now :-)

Hi everyone.  Hope the start of your week is going well.  I have Emily home from school, she has a bit of a chesty cough and with temps at -20c (-4f), I don't want her going out at recess.  Just in case you were wondering, the cut off here for keeping them in at recess is it has to be colder than -25c (-13f).

Another fabulous sentiment off this amazing CD - Polkadoodles Dollie Daydream Goes East.

I love all the different embellishments that are on this CD, there are pre-coloured ones like I have used, but they also come as black and white so that you can colour them yourselves.

Once again, I digitally paper pieced her dress in Silhouette Design Studio and then coloured the rest of her with my pencils. All the embellishments and sentiment ticket were cut using the Silhouette.

I popped up the image to add a little depth, the sentiment is slightly curved so as not to lay flat and just stuck the body of the butterfly to the ticket.

Finishing off the inside with the same layers as the front and a sentiment scroll.

And that is the end of the series of my tall cards.  I hope to make a gift box for these later in the week.

Have a fabulous week everyone.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  17. Another beauty! This series of cards has just been amazing - you are such a creative artist!
    Hope your daughter feels better soon. And that cut off for recess is totally crazy in my humble opinion! Of course I live in southeast Alabama where we completely shut down if we should happen to get a dusting of snow!

  18. Karon, this entire series has been so enjoyable! Each project has been so lively and beautiful.. just like this one. :o) I love the sentiment, the sweet butterfly, and the gorgeous paper piecing. Stunning work as always, my friend! :o) I hope Emily is feeling better soon! **extra hugs for her**

    Hugs and blessings!

  19. I can't believe the kiddos go outside when it is that cold.
    We try to keep the kids in if it gets 20-25f.
    I LOVE your card!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Crafty hugs.
