睡蓮のポップアップカード

A Japanese or Gothic Ascetic?

This pop-up card is a water lily blooming in a carp pond. A dragonfly is resting for a moment on its leaves.

The surface of the water and the carp are cut out white paper layered on black card. I used a stamp for the dragonfly. The wings were made of acetate with gold embossing powder to create a transparent effect. This was made with a Japanese ascetic in mind, although my husband thinks it’s quite gothic!

鯉の泳ぐ池に咲く睡蓮の花、葉っぱにはトンボが止まっています。

大きめな睡蓮は中心からずらしオフセットで設置。水面や鯉部分は白い紙を切り絵のようにカットし黒い画用紙に重ねています。トンボはスタンプを使い、羽の部分は透明感を出すのにアセテートと金色のエンボスパウダーで別に作成し体につけました。少し和のテイストを意識しながら作りました。

    1. Thank you! You are very kind. No, I don’t have an Etsy page at the moment, but I might set one up in the future. Some of my work is quite difficult to send by post, so I may only be able to sell it in local shops. I need to think about what I can make to sell online.

  1. How beautiful! My little girl loves dragonflies but gets really upset because I won’t let her keep one as a pet! 😀

    1. Haha! I tried to keep one as a pet when I was a child but my little sister pulled off its wings. I was so upset that I never tried to keep one after that!
