My Perfect Pinwheel card is also a Happy Birthday card to the USA!! Couldn't let July 4th go by without a little paper celebration, now could I? I'm also using a new PI - PI and the Pinwheel that you probably saw yesterday. They just go together like bread and butter, toast and jam...well, you get the picture ;-)
Okey dokey, then. I swear I had that outfit when I was a little girl, LOL! Isn't she adorable! BUT, look at that fabulous pinwheel!!! Yes!! It's a die!! And so stinkin' easy to put together you won't believe it! You can use it as a pinwheel or use it for a big ol' flower without the stick. I just trimmed off an orangewood stick for my pinwheel but there are dozens of things you can use: bamboo skewers, small craft sticks, card stock, patterned paper...
I colored my little PI with Copic markers, cut her out, and popped her up. I added a little interest with some twine, a button, and some clear Dew Drops, but the show stopper is that fabulous pinwheel. Love it! Here's the inside of my card, using a sentiment from one of last month's PIs - My Little Firecracker.
In addition to the new Pinwheel die, I used the Star Border Die-namics die.
Here are the Copic markers I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you back tomorrow with the last teaser for July!
