Card: Fold the sheet of Gumball Green cardstock in half to make card base.
Using paper snips cut “grass” every 1/8” to ¼" along the bottom of the card front.

On scratch Whisper White paper, stamp two Leaves and punch using Blossom Petals Builder punch

Adhere leaves to flower stem
Stamp “just for you” or other teeny message on white scrap then run through Big Shot using
Adhere message to bottom right of the card

Pinwheel: With desired pattern side up, fold Rose Red DSP square in half (corner to corner)
Then fold in ½ the other way (should have 4 triangle quadrants when done)
Use pen or marker to mark center spot (will be easy to see later & ultimately hidden by brad)
Cut along folded lines until about 1/2” in from center
Punch a hole in every other corner (1 punch per triangle- so pick all lefts or all rights) and center by carefully bringing the hole punch along a cut line
Gather all 4 corners together by going around in a circle and pulling each toward center adding under each other to layer through Glimmer brad (will demo for you if questions)
Push brad down through center hole & secure in back
Adhere pinwheel to card front- if you plan to mail, ensure pinwheel fits inside shape of cardstock
mine does not as I plan to give in person)
