Just Add Ink #572...Inspiration!


Pic Credit:

Good Morning friends!

Its Just Add Ink challenge time and this week we have some flowery inspiration to create with. I've been wanting to have a go at creating a "Pinwheel" fold and thought this would work well with the "In Symmetry" stamp set and inspiration.
The colours l've used are Pool Party-Polished Pink-Fresh Freesia-Old Olive on Basic White cardstock. Some Linen Thread and Basic Rhinestones to finish off. The little hearts are Retired SU punches.

This was so much fun to make and l think l will definitely have a go at some other sizes. This one is basically a standard A6 and will fit into a standard envelope for posting....I adapted the measurements  and created to use our standard AU cardstock. See below for those!

I created this card for a lovely friend that sent me a special delivery recently, that was very much appreciated during this slow and frustrating Covid climate...230 days of lockdown definitely takes it toll and she new how much l needed the contents, hence the greetings!

Base for the box/tube: 1x 4-1/4" x 4-1/8"
Score with the 4-1/4" at the top @ 1"-2"-3"-4" 
This leaves 1/4" to glue or tape to create the internal cube.
4x 2-3/4" x 4-1/8" for the main panels
4x 2-1/2" x 3-7/8" for the popped up decorated panels (these can be DSP if desired)
I created all my decorative panels first, then popped them onto the base panels, then secured those to the cube...very easy to construct and fun!

Lots of pretties from the design team, so click the link and take a look for some lovely inspiration.

  1. Your stamped flowers are the perfect embellishment for your pinwheel card - they are a perfect size for the panels. Wonderful card!
