I’m still having fun with my new stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps. This time, I used the Playful Pinwheels set along with this week’s Waltzingmouse sketch challenge for this fun little card.
I stamped the pinwheel outline image on white cardstock, then filled it in with one of the patterned images and one of the solid ones, then cut it out. After adding a big silver brad to the center, I used foam tape to attach it to a light blue circle. I used another piece of the wooden skewer that I first used here to make the stick for the pinwheel—1/8” ScorTape works well to adhere it.
The rest of the card’s pretty simple. I attached a green patterned paper panel to a blue card base and machine stitched around the edges, then layered on a pair of coordinating green cardstock strips and some light blue grosgrain ribbon before attaching the image panel on top. I stamped the set’s “you are my whirl” sentiment in the bottom right corner in blue ink. It's a little lost in the pattern, but I think it still shows up enough to get the message across.
