Share It Sunday

It's time for another Share It Sunday Blog Hop and today I'm sharing a Pinwheel Tower card featuring the Simply Elegant Product Suite.  This Product Suite wasn't on my radar when the Annual Catalogue launched, but now that I have started playing with it, I'm loving it.   This Pinwheel Tower Card looks really complicated, but it's not.  The great part of this card is that it fits into a standard envelope!

You can check out my YouTube Video to help you in making the card!  


  1. Cut Basic Black Cardstock 4 1/4" x 5 3/4" and score at 3/4", 1 1/2", 2 1/4" and 3"
  2. Fold on each of the score line and fold inwards to form a box.  Adhere the inside flap to the main part of the card base using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  3. Cut 3 pieces of Basic Black 4 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  4. Adhere one piece to each of the sides of the "box" created in the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  5. Cut 4 pieces of Designer Series Paper 2 1/2" x 4" and adhere to each of the flaps of the pinwheel using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  6. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper 1 3/4" x 4" and adhere to 3 of the small flaps of the pinwheel using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  7. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 1 3/4" x 4"
  8. Stamp sentiment and border using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  9. Adhere to the small flap of the pinwheel using Multipurpose Adhesive glue.
  10. Tie a bow with gold trim on the sentiment flap.

All of the supplies for this project can be found at the bottom of this post.
