Christmas Pinwheel Tower Card

 This card packs such a WOW factor, but it’s so much easier to make than it appears. I decided to go with a shiny color scheme and used the beautiful foil papers from the Peaceful Place DSP as well as doing lots of embossing with Silver Embossing Powder.

This is an overhead view of the card.  You can see where it gets it’s “pinwheel” name!

When the card is opened, it has four “pages” to it, almost like a book.
Page 1 — the front of the card:

The left side features a beautiful shiny tree cut from the Peaceful Place DSP.

The left side features a silver embossed sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set.

It also features a beautiful bow made using the Glitter Organy Ribbon.

Page 2 features embossed snowflakes and an embossed snowman, both from the  Snow Wonder set.
Right side of page 2:

Left side of page 2:

Page 3 features another piece of DSP from the Peaceful Place pack as well as a beautiful sentiment frm the Merry Snowflakes stamp set.

Left side of page 3:

Right side of page 3:  I love the different font used for the most important words of the greeting:  happiness; joys, warmth!

Page 4 features card stock embossed with one of  the folders from the Wintry 3D emobossing folder set.

This is the left side, but I did the same thing on the right side.  I stamped my “Created By” stamp on the paper before I embossed it.
