I rarely get to make pink cards, as I have one daughter and three sons. So, when I came across this stunning pattern paper I just knew I had to make a paper “quilt” card in pink and black and frilly in honor of the cancer survivors, those still battling this disease, and for those we’ve lost. I made this card in October which supports the “think pink” movement for breast cancer, which is near and dear to my family as we supported my sister who went through treatment this year and was one of the lucky ones and is cancer free. I urge you to tell all the special women in your life to “think pink” every month and every year and get a mammogram. As 1 in 4 women you know will get breast cancer and early detection saves lives.
I made this card by border punching the black card base down the right side. Saving the swirl punch scraps for the center accents. Using the picture as a guide, punch out the squares from three different pattern papers and adhered the bottom squares to the black card base. The center squares I cut in half and matched together to create the pinwheel effect. I cut out two larger squares, about 3″ and 3 1/4″, to create two mattes and adhered together. Then adhered the center squares to the mattes. Add the black swirls, buttons, and ribbon. And added a “for you” sticker to the front to finish it up.
