Pinwheel Card - SUO challenge #126

The challenge this week with the SUO challenges is to feature designer paper in my card/project.  To do this I made a Pinwheel card.  I used a tutorial on Stars and Stamps here

  • Basic card is Watermelon Wonder cardstock, layered with Whisper White, and then Cherry on Top DSP.
  • A piece of 1" Watermelon Wonder dotted lace trim was attached down the middle, and a piece of DSP was attached horizontally across the bottom.
  • The sentiment was stamped using Bermuda Bay ink and the 1" piece punched at both ends using the Triple punch.
  •  Two pieces of DSP were cut at 2 5/8" square and eight pieces at 1 1/4" (4 each of 2 contrasting papers)
  • The two large squares were adhered together at right angles to form the base of the pinwheel.
  • The smaller squares were alternated and adhered to the corners of the base.  With the last one piece, lift up the first piece and slip  the last piece under the first square.
  • A flower was adhered to the center.
  • The following punches/framelit were used to make the flower:  1 1/4" scallop circle punch, Petite Petal punch, and a small star framelit. Two 1 1/4" scallop circle pieces were punched - one in Watermelon Wonder, and one in Bermuda Bay.  The Petite Petal was punch with Watermelon wonder.  The star was made using the small star framelit.  This became the leaf.
  • Snip between evcry second scallop the scallop ciecles, and with the handle of a paint brush curl the snipped pieces.  Make a small snip between the petals of the Petite Petal punch, and curl up the petals the same way.
  • Adhere all pieces together alternating petals.  Adhere the star under the flower, and a metal rimmed pearl in the middle.  Then attach the flower to the middle of the pinwheel using  hot glue
