Joyous Noel Pinwheel card with Merry Merlot

The Pinwheel Card, designed by my friend Angel Holmes with inspiration from Darlene McCallum.

Here are the ingredients: copper glimmer paper, merry merlot ribbon, a silver foil-edged base and Joyous Noel paper.  

1.Cut a base 4 ¾ x  3 ½ stamp Merry Christmas lower right in merry Merlot (I used the Star of Light set). 
2.Cut 2 squares 2 5/8 x 2 5/8
3.Cut 4 squares 1 ¼ x 1 ¼ in 1 pattern and 4 more in another pattern
4.Glue the 2 big squares together diagonally – see photo.

5.Now Glue each small square into the 8 corners, overlapping the squares to create a pinwheel.  Your last square needs to tuck into the first, so glue relatively quickly!
6.Attach the pinwheel to a piece 4 ¾ x 3 ½, wrap 5” of ribbon, secure with scotch tape.  Now take a 4” piece of ribbon and tie a knot around the ribbon, secure to the card.
7.Stamp a greeting inside the card.

Keep it simple, make it beautiful, I hope you try it!  Happy stamping, MaryKate
