I absolutely love these pinwheels! There are so many wonderful things you could do with them. I decided to create a card using the pinwheels.

When I was deciding on papers my mind immediate went to red and blue for colors.  I have also seen a lot of cool layouts using the wood grain paper from the Dakota paper pack.  So I know my color choices – Barn Red, Pacifica, Whisper and Dakota.  Using my Silhouette I cut the pinwheels and sentiment frame.  I used bakers twine to wrap the sticks to add dimension to the  card.

Here is a list of supplies used:

  • Dakota Paper pack  X7157B
  • Grey wool Bakers twine  Z1701
  • Pewter brads Z1366
  • Pinwheels Stamp Set S1305
  • Barn Red Stamp pad Z2104
  • Pacifica Stamp pad Z2192
