Pinwheel Party Invite

It suddenly occurred to me this morning that I hadn't yet sent (or even created) the invites for my youngest child's birthday party!   So I grabbed my sewing machine and got to work...

Wait!  My sewing machine?

Yup.  I sewed on my card again today, probably saving myself a heap of adhesive!  And I think it's cuter, too.

To make the banner-pennant-thingie, I lined the papers up the way I liked them and straight stitched right trough the pile.  TIP: I find it easier to sew on a card before I fold it.  I also let the ends of the paper hang off because it's easier to trim after they're sewn on than to hold everything perfectly in place.

I added a fun pinwheel to finish off this card ~ super easy to make with the new Pinwheel Sizzlit die.  Did you know you can get this die and the coordinating pinwheel-themed stamp set "Wishes Your Way" for under $20!  I love how affordable Stampin' Up! has become!

Of course, it's even more affordable when you save at least 20% every order.  And get $156.50 for $99 and free shipping.  You know where I'm going with this, right?

You guessed it - I want you to join my team!  You get 25% more in your kit right now (until March 22nd) and you never have to hold a workshop or even order again if you don't want to!  See all the details HERE, or contact me with your questions ~ you'll be glad you did!

Happy Stamping!
