Oh this was fun to create…and to build. And yes, when the fun fold is a new one, it really does seem like a building project 🙂 The concern is, the finished product is 6 x 6 and that’s problematic creating an envelope. Having said that, I still like the card… and the idea.
Begin by cutting & scoring your card base: 7 x 6 and scored on the long side at 1, 2, 3, & 4. Burnish the folds and roll together to create a box. Adhere with liquid glue. It should look like this…
Attach to each of the flat edges a panel cut 3 x 6. There are three panels. It will look like this.
Decorate each side of the pinwheel – there are eight sides, four narrow and four wider. And you can embellish as much as you like. I kept mine fairly simple as I used the Fine Art Floral DSP and it is showy all by itself. Here are some of the decorated sides and I’ll give the card cuts below.
You can see I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies, Mossy Meadow Braided Trim and Poppy Moments Dies. For the sentiments I used Peaceful Moments and the Stamparatus for the ‘Happy Birthday’ and Encircled in Friendship for ‘You’re the BEST’.
- Mossy Meadow card base 7 x 6 scored at 1, 2, 3, & 4; 3 x 6 (3) [for pinwheels]
- Poppy Parade – 2 3/4 x 5 3/4 (4), 1 3/4 x 5 3/4 (4)
- DSP layer (Fine Art Floral DSP, coordinating patterns) – 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 (4), 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 (4)
Decorations: I used Mossy Meadow & old Olive for the leaves; So Saffron and Basic Black for the flower buds.
When doing the layering panels, I found it helpful to have those that would be facing each other, side by side to make certain the layers matched in pattern and in spacing, then attached them to the pinwheel panels.
Thanks to craftykarendesigns for the card inspiration!
