A Twirly-Whirly Birthday

Have you seen this new Sizzlits Die - a darling little 2" pinwheel! It's worth every penny of it's price just to have the holes all lined up perfectly and pre-punched. 

And kind of a cute cloudy sky, too,isn't it? Another wonderful new embossing folder, Cloudy Day. This time I cut six 1-1/4" squares of Whisper White card stock, embossed them and added them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I wanted something just a bit different than a solid piece of embossed sky. 

Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP (it's new, also!) adds a cheery touch and the small polka dots add interest without being too busy.

Don't forget to purchase Mini Brads with your Pinwheel Die - you'll want them to secure the center of the pinwheel.  I like to break the fibers of the paper down just a bit with a Bone Folder  - kind of get a curl going on before trying to assemble it. I slightly curl just the points where the brad will be -  the other points I leave flat.
