Meet Kiyomi...

Thought I'd give these girls a proper introduction, so starting off with Kiyomi. Kiyomi is my sister's middle name and she often goes by Kiyomi when signing her artwork. This image comes with a butterfly that Kiyomi is chasing, but is not featured here on this sample. Here's a close up of Kiyomi...

While exploring other blogs, I came across some you tube videos for a triple easel card, which was actually easy to make. Much easier than it looks! The main challenge is finding the right paper and embellishments for the side panels as they will look sideways when card is closed (shown here).

Keeping that in mind, I used my sakura punches by Punch Bunch to decorate the side panels. You can't really decorate using things that have a definite right or wrong way. Here's what the card looks like once you open it up... to keep the card open, I used a bunch of pop dots in strategic paces.

Being that my sister is the talent behind this company, I thought it only fitting to name the first image after her! Thanks Denise for all your hard work! Miss you!
