A card of a different sort to share....

Hello!  I'm so pleased you wandered
by my blog today.

I have a card to share that was
created for a class I taught on Wednesday, 3/13.

The base and inside of the card was made
using an Accucut die and looks
like Chinoiserie.

I didn't know what they were called
until one of the gals in the class
(thanks Gwen!)
shared the name and told us a bit
about Chinoiserie history.

The papers used to make this card,
are from Graphic 45
 Bird Song Collection.

The image on the front was fussy cut
from the collection, then glued to black
card stock, then fussy cut again,
and applied 
to the screen with pop dots.

The closure is with a magnet.

Once you lift the magnet closure,
and open both sides of the card,
this is what you see:

This card is embellished with an Asian medallion and a tassel
on the right side, and a sentiment spot on the left.

In the middle of the card is a beautiful water scene,
from the Bird Song collection.  The
flowers have been enhanced with Stickles.

The Accucut Die used:
Shadowbox, Landscape 1 and 2

Thank you for dropping in
to see my latest project!

God Bless your day,
