I'm up on The Greetery Blog today for the TGIF post and I wanted to share my card here on my own blog. I used the new Pinwheels Party stencils and Pinwheel Party dies in my card along with some pretty florals from Print Shop Fresh Florals and Top Down Day stamp sets.
I've had a lot of fun playing with the Pinwheel Party stencils and dies. Although this is a birthday card, they are by no means limited to only birthday themed projects. I think they make lovely backgrounds just lightly stenciled onto your cardstock. I love to have a soft background for floral cards or collage type cards.
So for this card, I used the Pinwheel stencils and very lightly stenciled several different pinwheels in different colors and sizes onto the background. I speckled with a tiny bit of the same color inks. I then stenciled some more pinwheels and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I layered these onto the card with foam tape. I stamped and cut out some of the pretty little bunches of flowers from the Top Down Day stamp set and tucked those behind the pinwheels. I also added some of the flowers and greenery from the Print Shop Fresh Florals stamp set.
To finish it up, I stamped the Happy from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, cut it out with the coordinating die and added it to my card with foam tape. The small birthday is also from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and added it below the happy with foam tape as well.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I hope it will inspire you to play around with the Pinwheel Party stencils in fun and unique ways!
