Just because

Diane asked if I could come up with a pinwheel for her. So I did :o)



And then I put it on a card :o) Cuz, come on... We all hope that the person we send a card to smiles, right? And who doesn't smile when you see a pinwheel? They're just so 'happy.'

LOTS of dimension on this card due to the pinwheel, but I think it's great! And although the card was originally created as a basic 4 1/4"x5 1/2" because of the way the pinwheel hangs out off the edge of the card it will require a MUCH bigger envelope.
Details:
  • Pinwheel: DesignStudio. All George. Finished size is 6" diagonally from point to point.
  • CUT FILE: ** Donate button is at the top right. Please specify which file you want when you purchase.
  • Cardstock: Apricot (Bazzil from Cardstock Headquarters)
  • Decorative paper: blue and yellow (DCWV Mat Stack), Stripe (CreatingKeepsakes)
  • Brad and plastic washers: Target $1 isle
  • Ribbon: Funkey Stripes (Michaels's)
  • Stamp: "Just Because" (Starving Artists), Swirl (Clear Stamps)
  • Ink: Prussian Blue (ColorBox)
  • Other tools: 1/4" sticky tape (Taylored Expressions), ScorePal, Fiskars hole punch, scissors
** Refer to Cut File link to see how to get my files.

  17. Jen,
    This is the cutest...I would love to have this file. After my dad died, every month when we went to put flowers on his grave, my oldest grandaughter was little and insisted on putting a pinwheel on Papa's grave. So I would buy one every month cause they would always dissappear. Now I can make my own every month.
    Thanks you so very much..
    love and hugs to you,
    bobbi
