The inspiration for this card is leaves.... and there are plenty of them. I wanted to make a spinner card because leaves spinning toward the ground pretty much describes what is happening now. The Dragon Fly symbolizes summer trying to hang on.
What papers did I use? All the patterned papers are from one collection. And it's an older one, Graphic45 - Botanicabella Collection. It's from 2009...see I told you it's an older one.
And here is what I've done on the inside.....
I repeated the papers from the same line. There is room for a nice note. I only glued the leaf across the bottom and on the right side. That was the note can be removed easily.
Originally, I was making this card for a birthday card for a friend. But....It bothered me that I didn't use a Birthday Sentiment on the front of the card. Soooo I made another card with a birthday sentiment. I wanted to use a different spinner, and I chose one that was too big for the piece, so back to the drawing board and I repeated with one I knew would work. I messed up the front of the card, but was able to save it (thank goodness as the front piece was the last of the paper and I would have been sad had it not turned out. I also chose a darker Distress Ink to outline the pieces. I think this was a good choice.
The inside will have a stamped sentiment and a personal note. I've not yet decided on the sentiment, so it will be added later. So it's almost the same as the original inside, with one more leaf added.
So two cards done....two occasions, one kind of paper and I am happy with both.
This was a fun project. I was surprised how easy it is to make the spinner card, so I know I'll be making many more of these. I have 12 Birthday cards to make between now and December 1....I guess I'd best get moving.
Sending wishes for a wonderful Autumn. It's so hard to say that now, when so many people are suffering the long time effects of hurricanes and earthquakes. They are in my thoughts and prayers and also I/we need to remember their physical needs and continue to give what we can to help make their lives just a bit better.
Not wanting to close on a down note....Enjoy your day wherever you are. Take a moment to enjoy this day and do something that makes you happy. Thank You for stopping by.
Hugs from my world to yours......
