MAKE A PINWHEEL QUILT CARD!

I'm a quilter and love quilt patterns.  It's so much fun to make a card using a quilt pattern! This Pinwheel pattern is one you will want to add to your card recipes! It's easy and beautiful!  It's also a great way to use up scraps of paper!  I've made this one for Christmas, but it could be for any occasion.

I made these cards a couple of years ago, but just saw a video tutorial on stampingwithKristina.  The sizes below are what she used.

You need to use DSP with two contrasting colors or patterns.  I've used the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.  (I love the gold foil accents in this paper.)  My card base is Pretty Peacock with a layer of Whisper White card stock. I embossed the Whisper White with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to give some texture and dimension to the mat layer.

Measurements for paper are:

Card base - 11 x 4 1/4" scored at 5 1/2"; Whisper White mat layer is 5 1/4 x 4"; Squares are 1 1/4" (4 each of two different patterns); large layer squares are 2 5/8" for base of small squares.

How to Make a Herringbone Pattern Card Using Adhesive Sheets

I just love this Herringbone pattern!  It makes me feel like I've quilted on a card. I saw a tutorial by Debbie Mageed at Secret Stamper.com where she made a herringbone pattern on a card, and decided I had to try it.  I decided to use one of the new Adhesive Sheets from Stampin' Up to adhere the strips of paper onto the cardstock.  I loved how easy it was to use, and want to share that with you!

I used pieces of Gilded Autumn DSP that had copper of gold foil on the paper.  I also used plain Gold Foil Paper and I love the elegant look it gives the cards. What a great way to use up strips of paper!

Here's another card created using the Ornate Garden DSP:

The strips of paper are cut at varying widths - 1/4", 1/2", 3/4" and then placed on the card in 4 different distinct sections.

Here's the video tutorial:

How to Make a Pop-Up Card With Stitched Leaves Dies

Oh the surprise when this card is opened! It looks pretty normal on the outside, but a bouquet of leaves pop up in the center! Another cool thing about this card is that it's base is made with designer series paper. It's cute and another fun one to make!

Inspiration for this card comes from Ronda Wade at Creating Success with Ronda. She made a Butterfly Pop-Up Card.

Here's the front:

The inside:
