I know I haven't used my Create a Critter cart in a while, so I figured why not pull it out and have some fun!!
Here is the fun shaped card I created AND it has moving parts... two of my favorite things! :) I cut the pinwheel at 5 1/2" and welded two shadow layers for the card base. All papers are from my scraps.
I punched out the little tag so the lucky birthday kiddo will know what to do. Some cute little bakers twine is a perfect touch.
Here is the pinwheel head closed...
... and spinning....
... and open!! I love it! The cute little sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Stamps. I added a flocked green brad to the center and mounted the pinwheel head up on 1/4" pop dots. Gel pen stitches add a lot and I just love them too!
I used a "skinny" stick for the handle. A little hot glue holds it in place perfectly.
Here you can see the card base. It opens from the top, but with the super skinny stick, there's no way it can stand on it's own (I was hoping it would be able to).
How do you like my new watermark?? I just taught myself how to make them!! Yaaa me!! :)
btw, all the pattern papers are scraps of Heidi Grace paper (so I can't tell you which paper pad it came from). I just love how this darling card turned out.
