Absolutely no one where I live is complaining about being "cool!" We are burning up. I do not remember New England being this hot when I was a kid. This month's Creative Cafe Kit has perfect timing with its bright colorful patterns. The custom stamps match perfectly to the Doodlebug Sunkissed collection. I highly recommend that you sign up for the monthly kit club if you haven't already. You will not want to miss this one.
For my first card, I wanted to incorporate all the colors and papers I could.
I had to control myself. Let's take a look.
For creating the pinwheels, I started by cutting one piece of patterned paper 2 1/2x 2 1/2.
Then two others 2x2.
With scissors, I cut from each corner in towards the center. Leaving about 1/4 inch to make sure it all stays connected. Oops, I may have cut in a little too far with the bright striped one.
Then, I used tiny glue dots in the center for each corner that I turned. Be sure to turn only every other corner like so.
One you have turned four corners on each, your pin wheels are ready!
Because the pinwheel stamp had a stick, I wanted to anchor most of my pinwheels too. I used a stoing adhesive like you see in the photo below. I added the beautiful blue string that was included in your kit for the stems.
Then, for the last step for the pinwheels, I added the small Doodlebug flowers to each pinwheel center. Finished off my card with a layered stamped pinwheel, ribbon and my sentiment.
I hope this will inspire you to create a fun, 3 dimensional card. This card may need to be hand delivered:o) Unless you want to push down on the pinwheels. I say, give it to your best friend or family member with a basket of popsicles!
