Pinwheel - Birthday Card

I found this paper the same day I found the Carousel paper that I used for the Carousel Card, it's actually from the same line, and loved the look of the pinwheels. I wasn't sure what sentiment to use but found something after browsing the internet that I thought worked for the card theme.

Supplies Used:
Various carstock
3bugsinarug Ashtyn paper
Recollections Animal Print paper
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Stampin Up Ribbon
Stampin Up Punches
EK Success Punches
GeoBreeze Domed Clear Circles
Signo UM 153 white gel pen
Colorbox Cateye Chalk Ink
Microsoft Word
Hallmark Card Studio

You might not be able to read the sentiment on the front unless you click the picture, it reads:
"Be Wildly Enthusiastic About Little Things"
The inside reads "Play with leaves
Skip down the street
Run against the wind!
It keeps you young!

The domed clear circles measure 1" across and I was able to apply the circle over the sentiment and then punch it out with an EK Success 1" circle punch. I also used a EK Success 1 1/4" circle punch and then the Stampin Up 1 3/8" circle punch and the Scallop Circle punch.

I think this card is very playful looking with the pinwheels and then the use of the zebra stripe paper.

Pin It


  1. Love the paper. Love the card. I have some zebra striped paper but it's glittery and doesn't seem to go with anything.

  2. Like you said..very playful! What a fun card!

  3. Another great card! btw.... wondering if there is way to email you directly. Thanks,
