Paper Tole (3D) Sarah Kay

I love the Sarah Kay 3D images. They are quite simple, for the most part, since they are die cut. That means no scissors required. Maybe just some sand paper to remove the burrs from the edges, that is it. I have loads of them in little snack zip lock baggies waiting to be adhered together.

Can you see the glitter that comes already adhered to the image. If not, you can click on the photo to get a better look. It really makes the image so much prettier.

When I pulled this particular one out my first thought was "What am I THINKING!" There were so many tiny parts that I was not sure I could cut a dimensional that small. Just look at this tiny piece for the bottom of the flower pot!
Yikes! It took me 2 tries to get that on right, lol. After the first try I was wondering if I should just leave it off. It really is cute being there, though, so I am glad I gave it a second try. The shovel in her hand was another one that was really hard since it is long and narrow also. But...dimensionals CAN be cut that small, lol.

I used my flower soft again for this. I thought it would make a wonderful grounding for the image. I finally received my order and there is some of the fine flower soft with it. I am excited to try that. Maybe next week, I don't want to bore you with all flower soft cards, lol
The inside is really simple. I used a Fiskar border punch I purchased eons ago. I just really could not think of anything else to do with the inside. Kind of got a brain cramp thinking about it, tee he he. certainly don't need one of those, so I kept it simple.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Emma: Embellish it
ECP: Pastel colors

HUGS,

Hi Sandy, thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. You amaze me with your beautiful creations. I've never used soft flowers in my 10 yrs of crafting and now I want to try them after seeing your stunning cards. Where do you get them from?

Erlinda Ramirez said...

Thanks Sandy for the info. I will research it and hopefully will try it out, but I know I won't get close to making such beautiful cards like you do.

What a gorgeous card. This little die cut reminds me of a doll I had when I was little, Holly Hobby was her name!

I love the softness of this card!
