My girls and I got together virtually last month and made this fun “stampless” card!
The pinwheel technique has been around a long time but may be the only quilting I may every do…unless my friend Janet shows me how!!I used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder on this card. I also used a button die from the retired Stampin’ Up! Arts and Crafts Dies. The Well Written Dies are a staple for cardmaking- so many words that coordinate with great sentiments in the Well Said Stamp Set. Here is how easy it is to make one with scraps in your craft room.
Here is another one I made with the versatile Stampin’ Up! Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper. It comes in 6″ x 6″ so it is a perfect size that leaves scraps when you cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel. I put the die cut “friend” on the inside of the card below. The white panel is embossed with Stampin’ Up! Dainty Diamonds EF. I love how it can lend itself to a polished look or a casual look depending on the stamps, technique, or materials you use:)
Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 11″ side
Border around White panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″

I always enjoy reading your blog, Cindy, and have used many of your techniques. Your videos are especially good! With this pinwheel technique, what is the purpose of cutting out a little square in the center of one of the 2-5/8” pieces? Thank you!
