Best Year Ever Pinwheel Technique Card

Hi Stampers,
FYI:  (Update on my dog Cooper:  They are running lots of blood work, Copper still will not eat or drink. The blood work should be back in the morning).  In between all my crying and my tear drops falling onto my card stock while I am waiting for blood work results to come back, I made this Pinwheel Technique Card to try to keep my mind off of things.

I have been wanting to try this technique for a while.  For this card I used the FREE Sale-a-bration Best Year Ever DSP.   It is FREE with a $50 order until March 31st.  I also used the Endless Birthday Stamp Set for the sentiment on the front of the card and the Flower Power Stamp Set and Pansy Punch on the pinwheel.    

For the inside of the card, I used the Big Day Stamp Set, which is also a FREE Stamp Set from Sale-a-bration this year,

For the card base I used the Calypso Coral CS.   I wanted the sentiment to be perfectly lined up horizontally, so I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig tool.  NOTE: ( If you need instruction on how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, you can watch my previous You Tube video on how to use it by CLICKING HERE.

Both the matching envelope and it's liner were both made with the Envelope Punch Board.  For the envelope liner, I used a sheet of paper from the Best Year Ever DSP. The final "tweak" factors were adding button from the  the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack, also a FREE item choice from Sale-a-bration this year,   I also put a little Whisper White Bakers Twine inside the little button.  I hope you enjoy the card.  See my video below on how to make a pinwheel card. Stay safe and God Bless!

    1. Thanks Robyn! It takes a while to put videos together and edit etc. so at least when someone leaves a comment on them it helps to know they are watched and appreciated. Thanks for the comment.

  2. Really cute card, Sharon. I appreciate the video also...makes it easier for me to understand. I hope to try this technique soon. I also hope you puppy gets better. They are like our children and we worry when they are not well.
