Halloween Pinwheel Twist Card

Hi friends! Happy Halloween! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! I got just a tad bit of crafting in today but mostly I have been babysitting two kitties we acquired early last week. One of the cashiers at our local grocery store told Ed that somebody dropped two kittens off on her porch, and her dog and cats didn’t like them. They are about 8-10 weeks old, I’m guessing, and very friendly, so of course Ed said we’d take them. :| Our little feral/semi-feral family in our fenced back yard didn’t care much for them so Ed brought them inside this morning and they’ve been stuck to me like glue all day, lol!

I really appreciate your support! I discovered a little while ago that I have two Halloween cards that I haven’t shared yet, so here’s one of them. This was the very first pinwheel twist card I made last month for my son and his wife. They are so much fun!

I cut the pinwheel twist card base from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock and the panels for each side from Milachi Digitals Halloween papers, all on my Scan N Cut. I cut the haunted house element on my Scan N Cut from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock, CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, CutCardStock Curious Metallic Violette cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Orange and CutCardStock Curious Metallic Night cardstock. I stamped and die cut several other elements to decorate the sides.

And here’s a shot from overhead so you can see the pinwheel construction. Absolutely LOVE how this turned out! And my son and his wife loved it!

Snowy Scenes Fun Fold

Happy Friday, everybody! I hope you’ve had an amazing week! We only had one appointment (for two felines) this week so I’ve gotten quite a bit of crafting in… and that makes me happy! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring our Royal Sundance cardstock that’s on sale this month, so be sure to stock up! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve been on a pinwheel twist card ‘kick’ for the last couple weeks (I have made four, lol) and this is the first one I’ve posted. I absolutely love making these… you know me and fun folds! I used Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock, Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue cardstock and Winter Wonderland 6×6 Cardstock Pad with just a few other items in my studio, so a very short list of supplies is needed!

This card folds flat to fit in a standard A2 size envelope, however, you could easily alter the dimensions to make it as large or as small as you want. I cut the card base and three extra panels from Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock. I cut layering panels from Royal Sundance Linen Midnight Blue cardstock. I picked the four scenes I wanted to use from the Winter Wonderland 6×6 Cardstock Pad and cut panels from each. The scenic panels were adhered to the blue layering panels and then adhered to the Natural felt panels.

I added a sentiment to each panel using the STAMPplorations Merry Everything Clear Stickers.

Here’s a shot from above so you can see the construction. It really is pretty simple and straight-forward. Be sure to check out my tutorial on the CutCardStock blog!
