Welcome to Day 5! Today’s card was probably the most complicated of the five cards I made for the Artisan Award Contest. It’s a pop-up card or a 2-steps card. I just made my own template (basically trial and error). I wanted that the pinwheels stand-up when you open the card and that was a real challenge! Some were falling down, so I ended up putting little paper brackets at the back so they couldn’t fall. I wished I had taken some pictures from the side so you could see better how it’s made, but I guess I didn’t think about it… Since I don’t have the card anymore, it’s now too late. The challenge was that nothing sitck out the card when it’s closed. (Seem kind of obvious, but when you fold the card, everything shift up, so it’s trickier than you think!)
I used the Sizzlit Pinwheel die (from last year mini-catalogue) and make 6 of them. I used different buttons and brads to attach them in the center. The super colorful Designer Paper ” Sunshine & Sprinkles” (now retired) inspired me this card.
Here’s the inside: A real surprise when you open the card!!!
