-Cut out piece of the Rambunctious paper 4” x 5” and attach to card.
-Cut out piece of orange cardstock 2 ¼” x 5” and attach to card. (I did mine slightly lower than center)
-Cut out piece of Suave paper 2” x 5”.
-Take cut out piece of Suave paper and use the EK Success Notebook Punch along one edge.
-Attach Suave paper to card on top of orange cardstock.
-Take the large flourish stamp from the Portobello Road “Boy” stamp set and using Black Soot Distress Ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.
-Cut out stamped image 2 ¾”L x 2 ½”H. Distress the edges of the cardstock and ink with Black Soot ink.
-Apply large pop dots to corners of white cardstock and attach to card in center towards the top.
-Take your Waterfall Stickles and apply to dots on flourish image.
-I then took the Waterfall Stickles and made dots along the upper edge of the Suave paper.
**Be sure to set this aside somewhere where you won’t bump it so the Stickles have plenty of time to dry!!
-Cut apart card at fold.
-Take one of the card pieces that you just cut apart and trim ¼” off the top and ¼” off one side.
-Take the trimmed piece and stamp the large frame oval flourish onto the center using black soot distress ink.
-After the ink dries, leaving about a ¼” edge around stamp, cut out the image.
-Center cutout onto other half of card that was not trimmed down and adhere.
-Taking scrap pieces of the patterned paper, attach them to the trimmed down piece of card that had the oval cut out of it. Be sure to trim the patterned pieces down so they do not overlap or hang over into the oval cut out.
-Apply large pot dots to the corners of the trimmed down piece of card and center it onto the other piece of card and adhere.
-Cut three pieces of patterned paper, two will be 4 ½”L x 1 3/8”W and one will be 4 7/8”L x 1 3/8”W.
-At one end of all three pieces of patterned paper cut out a triangle shape.
-Take a black pen and draw stitch marks around the edge of all three pieces of patterned paper.
-Randomly attach all three pieces of patterned paper to your card, in whatever order you like.
-Cut a strip of the Rambunctious paper 1”H x 6”L.
-Determine where on card you want to attach strip of Rambunctious paper and apply a strip of super strength adhesive across area. I used the red sticky tape.
-Attach strip of Rambunctious paper to one edge of card, leaving a small amount hanging over the edge, and every inch you will pleat the strip. Continue this pleating across the card. You should end up with five pleats.
-Cut three strips of cardstock, one each of yellow, blue, and orange, 1 3/8”H x 5”L and attach in any order to the card.
-To make the pinwheels:
-Take three different pieces of the patterned paper and cut a 2” x 2” square out of them all.
-At each corner cut in 7/8” towards the center.
-Apply super sticky adhesive to the center of each 2” x 2” square. I used the red sticky tape.
-Take one point and fold in to the center, pressing it down firmly onto the adhesive.
-Go to the next side of the square and take that point and fold it to the center, pressing it down firmly onto the adhesive.
-You will continue this for the other two sides of the square. Repeat these steps on the other two 2” x 2” squares.
-Pick one of the small stamps from the Portobello Road “Boy” set and using Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge, and Scattered Straw Distress Inks (matched the solid cardstock I used on the background) stamp the image once in all three colors onto white cardstock.
-Cut out the stamped image and attach a small pop dot to the back and apply to the center of the pinwheel to cover the folded in points.
-Cut 3 strips of white cardstock to make sticks/stems for the pinwheels and attach to card.
-Take the airplane stamp from the Portobello Road “Boy” set and using Black Soot Distress Ink, stamp the image onto the card.
