Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for May 2013- featuring Pinwheel
Pinwheel, a set of 10, is a fun, fun stamp set! If you have come here from Mary's Blog you're on the right path. If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete hop list at Helen's Blog!
I love that you can fit a gift card, tag, or decorative element in the pockets!
For this card, I used the Claire Papers. I love how neutral this particular sheet is, it will go with anything! I cut one of the large pinwheels (stamped in Cranberry with Crystal blue middle) and one of the medium sized pinwheels (stamped in Crystal Blue with Sunset middle) with Artiste. I then stamped two more of the smaller pinwheels (one in Honey and one in Sky Blue). To make them two-toned, I cut and paper pieced them together. I added some old Fanfare brads to the center and Colonial White Ric Rac as the stems of the pinwheels. The largest one, is in the big pocket :) On the inside I added the sentiment "You make my world go round"
