Spinner Card Fun

Hello Stamping Friends!!

I'm on the Dare 2B Artzy Blog today!!

Today I am going to share how to create a fun spinner card!

I started by coloring in two of the same penguin images from the adorable fun Penguin Fun stamp set!!  Now by all means you can use different images and even color the images differently!!  It so happens I was multitasking at the time at a retreat with some girlfriends and really wasn't thinking and colored them the same!  Which is fine!  But it would have been fun to change them up a little!

But anyway....after coloring them with my Copics I die cut them with the matching Penguin Dies!

So next I created my card base as well as the layers I wanted to use for the front of my card.  I used white cardstock for my card base, a piece of red for my bottom layer and then a piece of beautiful Winter Plaid!

You are then ready to die cut your circle.  You can first run your layers through if you like so you can see where the circle is going to sit, then set the layers on your card base and set the die back inside and lightly trace the inner part of the circle.  Remove and place the circle die only on that half of the card and run it through your die cutting machine again.

But if it isn't too think, which in my case it wasn't, you can run it through all together.

The take a smaller circle from the same die set or another one and die cut it two times.

Lay one face down and add string along the back, then add adhesive or pop-dots.  I decided to used pop-dots!
Then place the other circle on top!  Now you have your spinner portion done!!
Cut your string! Put aside for a few seconds.

Flip your card layers over and add adhesive to the back!  Then your string spinner portion to the back as pictured below:
I try to keep the strings straight and tight.

Now you are ready to add the adorable Penguins and finish up your fun card!!!

My finished card:
Isn't it adorable?!

I also used the circle die that I used to create the layers on my card to die cut a piece of Poinsettia Paper to place behind my spinner piece on the inside of the card!  As the spinner got a little lost being white with a white background.  I think it really pulled the whole card together nicely!!

So in love with this fun card!!

I have NEVER done this before and don't know how to edit videos or anything (so don't laugh!), but I created a quick little video to show the card in action:
Such a fun card!!
