Sweet little pinwheel!


When I noticed the little pinwheel die in the Spring Catalog I knew I had to have it - I've made these little guys before by hand, but a die makes everything easier :) I will be showing how to cut out and assemble these little pinwheels at my next stamp-a-stack so be sure to sign up! 

For this card I used a color combo based off the colors in the new little paper stack in the Spring book - It's called print poetry. It has a whole bunch of pretty colors in it and I picked primrose petals, summer starfruit and Raspberry ripple - which I realized after are all InColors! 

This card was really simple to make, I just used the primrose petals for the card base, embossed a piece of the summer starfruit with the perfect polka dots embossing folder in the big shot and then added a "flag" from the print poetry paper… see the dot theme? The pinwheel was made from paper from the print poetry stack as well. Then I added a little swatch of raspberry ripple behind it, punched out with the postage stamp punch. The set of stamps that coordinates with the pinwheels has some really fun sayings on it. I chose the one that said "blowing wishes your way" -- thought it would make a good birthday card.
