Faux Pinwheel Card

May 23rd, 2009 · 5 Comments

Faux Pinwheel Card

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Time to get out the patriotic red, white, and blue! I used Weekend Sketch #82 (the challenge is hosted by Mary Jo Albright this week), which was just the perfect layout for my pinwheel.

The faux pinwheel was a Workshop Wow challenge on the demo side of SCS (WW104), and I ended up creating my very first video tutorial to explain how I made it. I matted it with a 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Brocade Blue card stock with rounded corners. Three white taffeta ribbons were adhered to the 4-1/4″ square card with mini glue dots, and the sentiment was stamped on a Whisper White banner. I used a white gel pen to give the illusion of white thread going through the Riding Hood Red buttons.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love this — Very, very pretty. Same concept as teabag folding without folding the squares!

    Beautiful card and terrific quick and easy tutorial. Had me slapping my forehead! Couldn’t believe something this beautiful could be this easy.

    Now that you’ve got the hang of video can we expect more? Lots of fun!
