Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week on the Stamping 411 Blog.
After looking at the sketch a bit I decide I would make a pinwheel, they are very popular right know and even tho I have a die from another company that makes the cutesiest pinwheels, I decide to make one on my own. The kind that any one could duplicate, weather they have a die or not.
This one is made by starting with a 3 inch square of DSP . So cute and so easy.
I used some of the new Floral District paper that will be available from Stampin Up when the catalog breaks the first of June.
The base of my card is white card stock and I used Rose Red card stock for matting my layers.
The sentiment is from the Friendly Phrases stamp set. I matted the sentiment piece with Pumpkin Pie card stock.
I used one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Punch pack to make the little flower accents.
I used a wooden skewer for the handle to my pin wheel. I glued the pinwheel to the skewer using my glue gun and I used the glue gun to attach the pinwheel to the card.
There is no way this card would fit into a standard envelope. It is one of those cards that would be best hand delivered or attached to a present or gift bag.
I think the pinwheel turned out so cute!!
I will do a little tutorial on making these pinwheels if anyone is interested. Just leave me a comment.
Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!
