Swirly Birds Pinwheel Card

Hi and welcome!  Today I’m participating in a Crazy Crafters blog hop with special guest Jennifer Michalski. We get to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Jennifer’s projects. Here’s my project:

Swirly Birds Pinwheel Card-1

We’re thrilled that Jennifer is our guest for this hop.  Thank you Jennifer!


Today’s hop is a Crazy Crafters team effort. They’re a crazy talented bunch too, so make sure you visit them all!

Here’s the card that inspired me.


My 17 year old daughter recently went to the Brisbane Ekka (Exhibition) with some friends, and she brought a pinwheel home with her. It brought back fond memories of my visits to the Ekka as a kid, so when I saw Jennifer’s card I couldn’t resist the chance to CASE it!

I loved the bright gelato colours Jennifer used and the happy tone of her card. I wanted to try a 3D look with the pinwheels and also changed the colours. I added the little swirl image from Swirly Birds stamp set as the background, along with some washi tape.  The sentiment is from Cottage Greetings stamp set.

To continue on the hop and see all the fabulous projects from Jennifer and the rest of the Crazy Crafters team, click on the person after me – Gail Davidson – in this list below.
