My card for today is an oldie but goodie in regard to technique. It is the very easy to do Pinwheel card. There are many versions of this if you check Pinterest. And they have been around for many years. I find that old techniques and new designer series paper, make for beautiful cards. So here is my new version.
I love our new 2019-2021 In Colors! One of my favorites, well truthfully I do love them all, is the Seaside Spray. I used the 2019-2021 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack of the Incolors as my pinwheel. As I mentioned above there are a variety of ways to achieve this.
Generally you see a layer behind each piece of the pinwheel. Because I used this DSP and it is solid and white only, I decided to leave off the layer and just go with the white layer behind. Each of these pinwheel pieces are 1 1/4 X 1 1/4. (Again, these can be any size and are generally 1″ square with the 1 1/4 square background layer.)
For the background layer I decided to try the Handwritten background stamp. It is a nice change from DSP or an embossing folder background. I used the Seaside Spray card stock with Seaside Spray ink to make this layer.
I kept this a very simple card and did not add a sentiment or my usual embellishments. My only extra was the large Basic Pearl to the center of the pinwheel.
I would love to see your versions of this card if you decide toggle it a try. Please tag me if you do!!
