Create Blog Card Challenge: cards with rolled paper

So I had this idea in my head for a card for this challenge, and after two days (on and off) working on it, I think it came out pretty close to what I thought up! I began with a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" pink card base, cut a square slightly smaller in white card stock, then began to try and figure out the size of my openings. I decided on 1" which worked out well (after alot of trial and error!) I made a grid on the back to help me out, cut my X's, cut my patterned paper scraps to 1-1/4" squares, and used roll tape to secure on the back of the white card stock. I then looked around frantically for something to help roll the paper, and found a wooden dowel! Worked like a charm! I added the sentiment, raised it up with some foam squares and applied to the card base.

 I really like how this turned out! Hope you enjoyed the (wonky) tutorial. I'm enjoying a glass of wine while typing this so who knows how this will turn out! LOL! I hope that you had a great day today and thanks for stopping by!

It's is beautiful. Is it hard to put in an envelope?

Thanks everyone! @ Andi: I can't put this in an envelope, I need to find a box to put this in! LOL! This card is so outside my comfort zone, as all the cards I usually make need to be able to send in the mail. This was more of an "artsy-fartsy" idea I had! Perhaps I'll decorate a craft box to put this in!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
