Extreme Pinwheel

Extreme Pinwheel
I’m attending another shoebox swap north of Baltimore today, and this is the card I took with me. I had made a faux pinwheel card before, but saw a slightly different approach in the Technique Junkie Newsletter that I wanted to give a try. I like the way the pinwheel is matted with this version of the technique.

The 30-person swap called for all Stampin’ Up! supplies (current or retired), which gave me a chance to use up some of my Razzleberry Lemonade DSP. The image I stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on the white squares in the pinwheel is from the Extreme Elements stamp set. It almost makes it look as if the wheel really is spinning (it’s not, though).

Thanks for stopping by!

    This couldn’t be more perfect. I bet this card was the hit of the swap!
