Pinwheel card

Monday, May 3, 2010


I finally finished the quilling project I was working on before the weekend, unfortunately I can't post it on the blog because it's for a magazine. I will let you know when it's being published soon though!

I had a little time over the weekend to make a couple of cards, I've been playing with the theme of pinwheels as you can see! I've seen them around a lot recently on cards, so I thought I'd have a go, they're so easy to make. I'm still loving this yellow and blue color combo, it's so summery!


The stripe paper is from the Digichick and the spotty paper is a free download from the Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine website. I added some detail to the spotty paper by painting the spots with Creative Inspirations Paint in Blue Ice. The pinwheel is a simple square, there's lots of free templates online. I attached it to the card using a velvet brad. I painted the flat backed pearls in Creative Inspirations Paint in Autumn Wheat to match the warm gold satin ribbon. I added a little zigzag stitching on the sewing machine. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin. I'll be posting a few more pinwheel cards over the next couple of days.

Supplies:

Cardstock/paper: White card, Stripe paper from the Digichick, Spotty paper free download from Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine website, yellow paper
Ink: Ink it Up Black
Stamps: Anna Griffin In the Garden
Paint: Creative Inspirations Paint in Autumn Wheat and Blue Ice
Other: Blue blending chalk, double sided tape, blue velvet brad, yellow satin ribbon, flat backed pearls, glue, paint brush, white thread, sewing machine.

  2. Love this card, and it does seem that pinwheel's are the new embellishment; a friend of mine and I were just talking about making some for her scrapbook pages. The colors and patterns all work so nice together. Great job.
