Asian RAK Received

I am the most fortunate person to receive this beautiful card from my friend Gene L. who was visiting from Las Vegas. I can't tell you how beautiful this card this. Look at all the detail involved! The finished size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2. This card is made in my absolute favorite colors and of course in my favorite theme: Asian. Like the falling petals? Those are hand trimmed...........and scattered on the front card cover.

Open up the front screens to reveal.................a calendar:

Here's a closer view of the details: double layer cut flowers with die cut branch. Those specs of gold: OMG - she really punched them out using a 1/16" hand held punch and individually glued them on...........now that is a real Crafter!!!!

Here's an overview of the card:

A close-up of the inside round screen:
Don't you just love this card........stay tuned tom for the 2nd card Gene gave me.................

Beautiful card - I'd like to know how she cut the screen. By hand? or is it a die or punch?
