This traditional pinwheel cards are so easy to make. You will want to have a stack of these on hand for any occasion.
There is a video at the end of this post if you want to see these being made.
Lots more pinwheel cards to see – but first, let’s look at what you need to make these cards.
Two 2-5/8″ squares of cardstock and eight 1-1/4″ squares of Designer Series Paper – thats it for the pinwheels.
The base card is half a sheet of cardstock (either 4-1/4″ x 11″ or 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) scored in half and folded. Add a 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer on top of that.
An aside for a quick story here. I ran the 5-1/4″ x 4″ pieces (after stamping the sentiment on them) through the Subtles 3D embossing folder. I often say how this is my favorite and most used folder – well, this is what happened when I was making all of these cards! I have run hundreds of pieces of paper through this folder – so all I can say is – I certainly got my money’s worth out of it! Now, I can either buy a new one or fix it with duct tape – lol. (I will buy a new one!)
Now back to more pinwheel cards. This time with the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.
This is one of my favorites – these blues are great for any quilt card! This is paper from the Boho Indigo Product Medley with words from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
Lovely pastels with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper. This card has an added strip of DSP and a ribbon instead of a sentiment.
