Hi! Thanks for hoping with us along
If you came from Sharon's Blog @ Simply Sweet by Sharon, you are in the right place.
If you just came across this hop and would like to start from the beginning, please go back to Jenny's blog (Crazy About Cricut).
Today I have this fun card to share with you. The card base measures 6" x 8". I created the pinwheels first, selecting paper from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes paper pack. The pinwheel papers measure 2" x 2". I then added these adorable sticks (they're actually coffee stir sticks) and hot glued them together.
Each pinwheel has a simple button at the center although it would be wonderful with a brad in the center so the pinwheel could still spin. The background paper is some Coordinations paper that is pre-embossed with a small polka dot.
If you are unsure about making these cute little pinwheels, I assure you, they are EASY!! These (along with about 10 others) were made by my two boys!! :)
This cute sentiment is from Hero Art's "Thank you for being my friend" stamp set. I hand cut a little banner for the sentiment and them paired it with a 1/8" border of black to match the body of the card.
This terrific twine is from The Twinery. I just love the red and white. I added a little bow I tied with my Bow Easy and hot glued it to the pinwheel sticks. I wanted a little more twine on the card so I added these little white corners (simply 1 1/2" squares cut in half on the diagonal) and attached a little strip of twine there too.
The inside of the card received a sentiment from the same Hero Art's "Thank you for being my friend" stamp set. I also added similar layers to the card front.
Thanks for visiting me today.
