A little about her!

Hey Everyone!
I am Dolly from Dolls Arts and I have been invited by the Lulupu team for this GDT post. Thanks a lot Lulupu for this lovely opportunity which will always be close to my heart since it’s my first GDT post.
A little bit about me: I am from the orange city of India – Nagpur and have stayed in Bangalore and Mumbai for quite some time. Currently, I am working with a Pharma company in the City of pearls- Hyderabad for more than two years. 
For as long as I can remember, I was into paper crafting – Be it creating science projects in school or playing with my mom’s sewing machine to create patterns for cards. I got hooked line and sinker into card making when I moved to Hyderabad. I also love making candles and glass paintings.
You can drop me a line at Dolls Arts and I would love to get to know more about you!
For this post the theme is Children’s Day and the card I have created will be a joy for any kid to play with. So hop on and check out the project! 

This post is a very special one for me, any guesses why? :) I have been invited to guest design for - India's favourite Online Paper Craft Supplies Store. 
And, this is my very first guest design! Cheers to many more to come :)
The project which I will be sharing with you is an interactive card (Video Tutorial: Pinwheel Spinner Card) for the occasion of Children's Day. Any kid would love this card and want to continue to play with it. So let’s see how this card was made. 
1. I started out with a 2 x 2 inch pattern paper which was cut from all four corners till the center of the piece.

2. I created a pinwheel, by bringing one corner of every piece and sticking it to the centre. You can also refer to this easy pictorial representation. 

. 3. To finish the pinwheel, I added a button with a pearl embellishment from my stash.

4. To make the card, I chose A2 size pre-folder card base and two additional patterned papers which would coordinate with my pinwheel. The pattern paper was cut 1/4" smaller than the card base.

5. I created a slot for the pinwheel but cutting out the paper with rounded ends. To the finished pinwheel, I added some double sided foam tape and adhered that to a 1 rupee coin. On top of this, I added another piece of double sided foam tape. 

6. The pinwheel with the foam tape side up was adjusted in between the slot and the second 1 rupee coin was adhered on top which made a perfect sandwich for the pinwheel.

7. The sentiment "Happy Day" was stamped in black ink prior to adding it to the base of the card and a quick array of sequins was added for the charm.This was adhered to the card base by loads of foam tape to give dimension. 

Here is the final look of the card:

Now, what is an interactive card if you cannot see any activity, so I have a video for you which will show how much fun this card can be! Please watch the video below.

Hope you liked this card & are inspired to make one for yourself! :)
Till my next card! Adios!
