Cards Inspiration with Martha!

Hi everyone! Martha Lucia here with a Fun Fold Card to share with you. I decided to make this because we have a wonderful double faces papers and with this style we can show both faces at the same time. This model of card is called a Pinwheel.

  • To make this I used an 8"square of Gypsy Road 800 paper.
  • Using the Diagonal Scored Board I scored the lines at 3" on all four sides.
  • Then I cut the little triangles that were created when the scored lines crossed over each other.
  • At this point I flipped the paper over and using the straight scored board, I scored at 1" in all four sides but only until the triangle was cut out.
  • All these scored lines created in my square the "mountains" and "valleys" that I needed to make the card.
  • I folded all the lines using the bone folder and closed it in a clockwise direction, trucking under the last fold.


  • Inside of the pinwheel card, I pasted a 4-1/8" square of Celebrate 400 paper, keeping the yellow side in front.
  • I used a 4" square piece of very vanilla cardstock to stamp my images and decorated the card inside.
  • For this I used one stamp from So Suzy Stamps called Daisy Doodle that I colored using our PowderPuff Chalk Ink Fuchsia and Powder Puff Chalk Ink Buttercup.
  • I applied the ink using a blender pen.
  • The initial flower and the sentiment were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • To finalize the decoration of the card, I made a belly band with the Celebrate 400 paper. The size of this is 1"x11". And I stamped a Pansy Doodle from So Suzy Stamps too.
  • I cut it with scissors and colored it with the same colors that I used for the interior of the card.
  • To make this belly band more attractive, using the same Celebrate 400, I cut a die called Grassy Cattails from Die-Namites.
