Fabulous Pagoda Cascade Card

I'm sharing with you today what I consider the most fabulous handmade birthday card I have ever received in my life. And without a doubt, this incredible cascade card was created by my very special and talented friend Patti, of Creations By Patti.
I've had my eye on, and pinned what I thought were some really pretty cascade cards on my Pinterest board for quite awhile now, with the hope that I'd like to try one someday...but none of them even come close to being as clever and elaborate as this one. Woo Hoo! You can just imagine how excited I was to receive this stunningly beautiful card from Patti during our last visit to the Bay area.

Here's a view from the top of the card at a different angle to show all the intricate attention to detail that went into putting this card together...each piece of the red traditional torii gate, the Japanese girl, her kimono and teapot... every bamboo stem, each leaf, painstakingly inked and pieced together to create this very special one of a kind card.

You can find links to all the different svg cut files and learn about the techniques Patti used to create this little masterpiece by visiting her blog here. And while you're there, be sure to check out all the rest of her beautiful creations, guaranteed to amaze and inspire you to no end!
