Stampin’ Up! Half Pinwheel Card

Hello again – it’s Friday! We have gorgeous weather here on the East Coast – about 72 degrees, sunny and fabulous. Tomorrow it will be hot once again, so we are appreciating this weather. As a matter of fact, I was extra lazy this AM – sat on the front porch with my coffee & the birds singing – in lieu of posting! UGH!!! So here I am AFTERNOON and sending it out. 🥴

Today’s card is one we did in class yesterday and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out – a half pinwheel card. Here two that I have done and those in the class as well. They didn’t want to be in the photo!

Class photo of half pinwheel cards

Each of these is different from the next but the same dimensions and the same idea. The photo on the left uses the Fine Art Gallery DSP that retires Jun 30 and the right card uses the Simply Succulent Suite of products – also retiring Jun 30. The nice part about this card is that it fits an A2 size envelope – finished size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

& instructionsDimensions:

  • Card base is 5 1/2 x 7 1/8 scored on the long side @ 1, 2, 3 & 4″. Cut another panel 3 1/8 x 5 1/2.
  • Burnish well on score lines; fold together to form a box. Adhere the last fold to the long side of the card base with liquid glue.

  • Adhere the 3 1/8 x 5 1/2 panel to the extended section. It will look like a Z when added.
  • Adhere decorative panels to appropriate sections: 2 1/8 x 5 1/2; 3 1/8 x 5 1/2
  • Using third largest of the Stitched So Sweetly dies, die cut a sentiment panel. Stamp the appropriate sentiment. The one on the left is from Elegantly Said stamp set. The sentiment in the right photo is from Simply Succulents stamp set.
  • Adhere to the front panel with dimensionals so that when ‘closed’ the banner is centered on the card.
  • Decorate as desired. The left card had Champagne Rhinestone Jewels added. T
    he card on the right had felt flowers from the suite of products and a lovely double bow using the linen thread from the set.

On the back of the card I added more DSP and die cuts using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to add a special note.

Half Pinwheel Card.4

Before adhering the left panel to the back of the card, I wrapped the same thread around once and tied a sweet bow leaving long tails to drape the card. Since the thread is so thin, there was little added dimension and the DSP remained flat once adhered. I do like how this added a finishing touch to this card!

Half pinwheel Card.5

On this card, I used Calypso Coral card stock run through an embossing folder. I really liked the added texture to the card. Additional DSP was added to the envelope flap that coordinated to the card front – from the Simply Succulent Suite of products.

And that’s it! Fun project.
