Designer's Tip: The Lavender Bling adds just the right amount of shine to this patchwork card. For this card, you don't need to cut out the square bases of the patches—the lavender background serves as the bottom layer for all four patches.
- For the Front: Place the card with the fold on the top. Trim card to a 5" square. Cut a 5" square of smooth white cardstock. Color the entire square with the large tip on the Spectrum Noir Pen LV1. Cover the card with this cardstock. Using the Paper Patchwork 2 Template place the Top A of the 4-Sided Pinwheel on the back of floral Color Me Paper. Trace this shape 4 times. Trace Top B once. Cut out all shapes and color in with LV2 & LV3. Set aside the Top B shape for the inside.
- Glue the four Top A shapes to the card as shown. Trace Top B 4 times onto the back of purple floral pattern from the Gypsy Jewels Paper Pack and cut out. Glue these on top of the Top A shapes on the card. Cut out 4 Pinwheel Centers from smooth white cardstock and color them with LV1. Glue to the centers of the pinwheels.
- Cut a 1 1/8" square of smooth white cardstock and color with LV1. Stamp "I Love You" in the center with black Stazon. Mat on an already-colored piece of floral Color Me paper, leaving a 1/16" border. Mat again on floral pattern paper leaving a 1/16" border. Foam tape this greeting square in the center of the card. Add medium and small Lavender Bling to the centers of the pinwheels and corners of the greeting square as shown.
- For the inside: Create a pinwheel using purple floral paper for Top A and Color Me paper for Top B. Create a lavender pinwheel center and glue to the center. Cut a 2" x 1/8" strip of Color Me floral paper and color in with the same colors. Glue angled to the card bottom as shown, 2" from the left. Glue the pinwheel to the top of the strip as shown.
