Pinwheel Tower Cards + extra Botanical Cards

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

 Hello, Kraftie Friends!

I tried a new Fun Fold Card - Pinwheel Tower Cards - and here are my first ones...

Card #1

This was my first try and I messed it up, since the panels were not straight enough. So I trimmed it down to 3.75" x 5.5" and figured I could still use it with embellishments sticking up on top, but still able to fit in a A2 envelope!

So I used scrap papers and a new die cut I bought recently...and voila'!

This is what it looks like from the top:

Card #2

These cards are great for scrap papers!

I'll show the other 3 sides of both cards in another post + a video tutorial on how I made mine later...

And here are a couple of cards using die cuts from my scrap box...

Card #3

Frames were cut with a machine. I had the flower cut out also, so I just lined up the images and adhered the flower cut out on card with foam tape. Then, I added a stamped sentiment + shimmer brushed the flower cut out in Peach.

Card #4

I layered some die cut leaves, shimmer brushed the green leaves in Peach and adhered on card with foam tape. Some other die cut leaves were glued flat or adhered on card with foam tape. On the inside, I stamped "our friendship stays the same".
