HOC Week 7 – Pinwheel Tower card

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight’s card is a Fancy Fold card called the Pinwheel Tower card. These have been popular lately and I thought it was about time to give it a go! You will find many tutorials online for this style of card.

The card bases are Evening Evergreen, but the centre is actually made from a piece of the Evening Evergreen sheet from the 2021-2023 InColor 6″ x 6″ DSP pack.

The Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ DSP is one of the items you can choose with any $90+AUD order during Sale•a•bration! It coordinates perfectly with the Penguin Place Bundle which I have also used on this card.

This view has DSP on both sides, some white card added for the snow and the penguin is stamped in Memento Black, Calypso Coral & Fresh Fressia inks. The penguin is cut with the Penguin Builder Punch and the scarf is fussy cut with Paper Snips.

This is the back with a large panel of DSP, and the small panel is Basic White card to write your Christmas message. The tree is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink and the gifts in Pool Party and Calypso Coral inks and fussy cut.
