Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I’m back with more Pinwheel tower cards. I’ll be sharing the video replay of the Pinwheel Tower card again for our new viewers … it has the dimensions you need to create your own.
Let’s begin with the cute Pattern Party Designer paper with all it’s adorable patterns. In the video you heard me say that this has color on one side and black and white on the other, so….
For a pop of color, I did the Ombre technique using Bermuda Bay ink and my Blending Brush. I love how it turned out. I did “each side” as it lays flat the same … not intermingling the designer paper like I did on the other cards. So one side is Ombre and the other is ….
With some of the leftover Basic Black cardstock, I created a “pocket” to tuck in some money or a gift card into it!
Here are the dimensions for the Pinwheel Tower Card …
- Tower: 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ … Score at 1″ – 2″ – 3″ and 4″ which leaves 1/4″ flap to secure the tower.
- Cut 4 pieces of cardstock 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″. These pieces will be attached to the tower.
- Designer paper cut 4 @ 4″ x 2-1/2″ plus four slim pieces cut at 4″ x 1-1/2″.
I used the Elegantly Said bundle for my greeting as I did on one of the other cards, and I dyed the edges of the Glitter Organdy Ribbon to coordinate and add a hint of color to the tag.
My next card highlights the stunning Expressions in Ink Designer Paper… The pattern was cut to flow around the entire card. I simply can not resist beautiful designer paper … it turns a “fun fold” card into something elegant …
I used the Create with Friends stamp set and stamped my greeting in Evening Evergreen … I adorned the card with the 2021-23 In-Color Gems, also the Evening Evergreen.
STAMPIN’ TIP: You save designer paper when cutting a 12″ x 12″ at the 4″ dimension instead of the 4-1/4″ because the 4″ cuts equally and the other leaves leftover.
Here is the video
