Husband Birthday Pinwheel Tower


This Pinwheel Tower Card was made for Creative Creases Challenge #12 where Debbie Mageed challenged us to make a card using the new (to me) Pinwheel Tower Card. She pointed us to an excellent video tutorial on the technique on Linda Heller's blog. It looks complicated, but it's super easy! The challenge is to essentially come up with four different "card faces" that coordinate with one another.

To make my card, I instantly thought of the super big 2010 Stampin' Up! (SU) "Sweet Pea" Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack that had 24 different double-sided pattern papers. After 11 years I'm still hoarding this paper pack because of it's versatility!

Here are what the four "faces" of my card look like:


The nice thing about this card is that it folds flat to fit into a 5"x7" envelope! I chose SU Island Indigo as my card base since it coordinated so well with the 2010 pattern paper I chose.

It's a fun card, and I'm sure my husband will think I did some magic to create it! I am giving it a difficulty level of "2" out of a possible "5" just because you have to essentially create four card fronts. It's not hard, just takes a while. Have fun! And thank you, Debbie for featuring this fun fold on your blog challenge!!!
