Pinwheel Thank You

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share with you today another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project. You know how I love me some fancy folds! ;) I created a fun pinwheel thank you card with a shaker inside using the last little bit of Green Jeans ribbon from the Saturday Morning Bundle. This truly is one of my favorite colors, as evidenced by the fact that I now have none left, lol!

I created this card out of some of my favorite double-sided Stampin' Up! paper in shades of green. I attached some stitched border strips to the four flaps for a little interest.

I created a multi-loop bow embellished with a single pearl in the center. I stamped the sentiment on a flag, tucked it under the bow and added a row of tiny pearls. I love flags because they make such bold statements! ;)

Here's a shot of the card opened up to reveal the inside thank you sentiment. Both the front and inside sentiments are from Stampin' Up!

I got a fuse tool and have only used it once, so I wanted to get a little more practice creating shaker pockets. I saw this as the perfect opportunity... filling the pocket with hearts, stars and two sizes of round sequins. BLING BLING! :)

I'd love to to enter this fun card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Old Olive Cardstock (#100702), Stampin' Up! English Garden DSP (#138440)
