Pinwheel Tower Card and more for Ariane’s Birthday

Today is my daughter’s birthday! We were able to get together and enjoy an early celebration in Maine last month; however, I still wanted to send her a little something for her actual birthday. Her favorite color is purple so I pulled out the gorgeous Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and Fresh Freesia cardstock and had some fun creating a special fun fold card and Hershey nugget birthday cake.

I saw several different pinwheel tower cards on Pinterest. I really liked the tip from Linda Heller to use DSP for the center tower (so it is not so heavy and bulky in the middle).  I was definitely inspired by her card but changed mine up to make a regular (A2 size) card.  I love how this card stands up and showcases the DSP on all four sides.

This card looks complicated but, trust me, it is really easy to make! I chose to use 4 different patterns of DSP, 2 floral and 2 gingham, to keep things simple. You could easily choose more patterns to mix and match.  I was going for a more traditional pinwheel look.  Here’s the details:

Card Measurements:

Column/Tower (Pansy Petals DSP): 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 scored @ 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″
Cardstock panels (Fresh Freesia) : 4 pieces 2 3/4 x 4 1/4
Designer Series Paper (Pansy Petals): 4 pieces 2 1/2 x 4, 4 pieces 1 1/2 x 4
(*Cut one size each of 4 different patterns – 2 floral, 2 gingham), cut pansy and leaves from DSP
Basic White: scrap pieces for sentiments
Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen: scraps to punch heart & die cut flower

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish DSP. Add adhesive to 1/4″ side and adhere to form tower.
  2. Adhere cardstock panels on each side of tower.
  3. Adhere DSP layers to cardstock.
  4. Add sentiments and embellishments to each side.

You can check out Linda Heller’s (Stampin School) video HERE.

I love the coordinated colors and different patterns in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper! You can use the Dies included with the bundle to cut the pansy flowers and leaves.

I chose 3 patterns to make the tiered “birthday cake” to send with her card.

I cut 18 1″ x 3″ DSP strips to wrap the nuggets.  You need 5 for the top layer, 6 for the middle, and 7 for the bottom. To make each layer, adhere the nuggets to a 1 x 8 strip of cardstock using a strong adhesive (Tear & Tape or Stampin’ Seal +). For the top 2 layers trim off the access cardstock from the strip making sure to save enough to adhere the end piece to the first to form a circle. I used a bunch of Mini Glue Dots to adhere the nuggets to the die cut circles between each layer. *For the base I cut a circle from the heavy 12 x 12 white cardstock (in the DSP packs) and glued the Fresh Freesia cardstock circle to the top and bottom to cover the white. This makes it nice and sturdy to lift. I used more Mini Glue Dots to adhere the bow on top and ribbons down the side as well as the Loose Flower Flourishes. This “cake” was so much fun to make but almost looks too good to eat!

I thought it would be a nice surprise to send a little cash as I know she will be going out to eat with her friends from school.

I adhered the plastic silverware together with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered the money with Mini Glue Dots, and wrapped Fresh Freesia organza ribbon around it all and tied a bow.  The sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set was perfect for the tag. I was going to put this in the Ombre Gift Bag but really liked the look of it on top so I added a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the bag. Even though the Pinwheel Tower card fits in a regular envelope, I placed it inside the bag. I hope these little homemade gifts bring a smile on her special day!
