This card makes for a beautiful show! It takes a little bit of effort, but the result is amazing.
I started by cutting the dark green paper to measure 4 1/4" by 11", or the length of the 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of card stock. I scored and folded the card stock in half. Then, I scored from one end at 4 1/4". I glued between the score lines and adhered the front of the card to the back. The scored area will be on the left facing up.
Next, I punched out 1 1/4" squares. Cut two each of three coordinating papers. Cut one square at 2 1/2" out of white card stock. Adhere four of the squares using two designs on the white card stock, alternating the patterns as seen in the picture.
Cut a dark green panel at 3 1/2" square, and adhere the four-square on point. Take the two remaining design papers and cut them diagonally. Place them as shown in the picture to make a sort of a pinwheel. The dark green is left as is.
Cut a white panel at 3 3/4" square to make a frame, and adhere the previously dark green panel on it. Adhere the whole design onto the dark green card base.
The last thing I did was to stamp the sentiment and cut it out with a scalloped circle punch. I adhered that to the center, which covered up any mistakes with the paper meeting in the center! I also added the ribbon onto the left side.
Julie Davison, Stampin' Up! demonstrator, helped me with this design, and I couldn't have done it without her expertise!
