Pinwheel Tower Card


Welcome to For The Love Of Stamping! Today's post is a fun fold card called a Pinwheel Tower card.

It is super easy to make! 

This card features the Quiet Meadow bundle. I have designed my card in a monochromatic scheme.  I love the elegance of black and white and that is what I am using on this card.


1. Cut base at 7” x 5 ½”

2. Along the 7” edge, score @ 1”, 2”, 3”, 4” – burnish score lines and fold into a tube shape – you will have a 3” x 5 ½” section extending from the tube (tube is behind the panel). This is your first "wing".

3. Cut 3 basic grey panels @ 3” x 5 ½” – attach one panel to each of the open spaces around the tube base. 

4. Cut 4 black layers (2 ¾” x 5 ¼”) and adhere to basic grey panels to create a mat layer (front facing panels).

5. Cut 2 white layers (2 ½” x 5”) and adhere to black panels opposite each other. In the picture one is the panel with the black daisy and the sympathy sentiment and the other is the other side of the one with the daisy die cut with the grid lines - these sections are "kiddy corner" to each other.

6. Cut 4 black layers (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”) – adhere to back side of each of the grey wing panels to create a mat (you can see one of the sections in the photo above - it is the one with the daisy die cut with grid lines).

7. Cut 2 DSP layers (this is the grid line DSP) @ 2 ½” x 5”. Center the daisy die and die cut. You now have a die cut daisy and a DSP layer with a negative space.

a.     Adhere the daisy die cut with the grid lines to the black panel shown above  

b.     Then adhere the DSP  with the the die cut daisy negative space on the opposite panel. (see image above).    

c.    Repeat with the second die cut and DSP placing them on the panels that are "kiddy corner".

     8.  Die cut 2 additional silhouette flowers from black cardstock and adhere to the white layers from step 5.

     9. Stamp sentiments and die cut with the label die from the Pierced Blooms die.  Adhere as shown with dimensionals

Happy stamping!

  5. I have written the directions down and I am going to make this card for a Uncle's birthday. I do have a set of stampin Up stamps, and I am going to use Pineapples since he grows pineapples in Florida..Of course he loves them too. I am always looking for fun fold cards to make and I have finally landed one.. I love your card too..absolutely stunning.

  6. What are the wing panels?

  7. Hi Dianne - the wing panels are the pieces extending from the center of the card

  8. Very pretty card. Thank you for sharing your directions and ideas. Very kind of you.

  9. How do you attach the wing panels? Also I counted 4 and your directions say 3. Please explain.

    1. The base piece measures 7”. Once you score and fold the 1" sections (scored on the 7” edge, score @ 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”) into a square tube there is a 3 " section left - this is your 4th panel.

  10. Do you glue the wings on? Does the card fold to fit in an envelope? Thank you

    1. Yes to both questions. I just updated the instructions to attempt to clarify the steps. I hope this helps.
