Thinking of You

Hi reader!  I was able to make a pop-up card yesterday, which I'm sharing with you now.  The pattern is designed by Keiko Nakazawa, from a book I bought from the Japanese Pavillion in Epcot earlier this year.  Ms. Nakazawa is popularly known as an origamic architect, and she has written several books.  I'm trying to link her website, but it doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Anyway, this is not the first time I made a card using Ms. Nakazawa's patterns.  The first one was a Cherry Blossom pop-up card done during National Craft Month.  Here's the second using the "Hydrangea" pattern:

And for more dimension, I colored the petals with Copic markers and the flower center with Shimmerz.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  The Paper Copmany, Bazzil, Recollections
image/sentiment:  Stampin' Up
ink:  Tsukineko, Copic
tools:  Fiskars edge punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, SU punch
embellishments:  brads
misc.:  embossing powder (Tsukineko), pop-up pattern (Keiko Nakazawa)
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

'Til next blog!
