Pinwheel Card Made with the Envelope Punch Board

November 17, 2017

Sometimes it’s just plain fun to give a card that has a unexpected way of opening up–like this Pinwheel Card made with the Envelope Punch Board.

You’ll need an 8″ x 8″ piece of Designer Series Paper, or any paper that has a printed pattern on both sides.  You’ll also need the Envelope Punch Board and the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.  You could substitute with the scoring blade on your Stampin’ Trimmer.

Today’s pinwheel card is made using the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.

I swapped ten of these cards at OnStage 2017 in Salt Lake City last week and the instructions above are what I enclosed with each card.
