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.

  1. What a fun card this would be to receive! So pretty with those soft colors too. Very nice!

  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.



I really appreciate your comments, thanks!
