I have a fun project to share with you today, that I designed for my class today. It is a spinner card using the cute Santa from the 'Cookie Cutter Christmas' stamp set. The great thing about circular spinner cards is that you can easily adjust the dimensions of the circles you use so long as you keep a distance of 1cm (3/8") between them. You can see the first one I made here, which is a different size and I also provided some information about how to make the spinner mechanism.
For this card, I have stamped the 'Ho, Ho, Ho' from the 'Greetings fromSanta' stamp set and then die cut with the fabulous new 'Stitched Shapes Framelits'. These framelits are brand new and have been brought forward from the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue. There are 12 dies in the set - 4 circles, 4 squares and 4 ovals and they work with the Layering framelits (circles, squares and ovals). The stitched effect just adds that perfect finishing touch of detail. The set is $50 AUD and is flying off the shelves and is likely to go on back order very shortly. Order yours now to have them for your Christmas crafting. You can click on the image to go to my online store to order them.
Now back to the card. The top layer has been embossed with 'Holly' embossing folder and then matted onto Garden Green. The layer was then attached to the card with the 1/8" foam strips. Here is the finished card.
Here is a close up of the Santa and the lovely Stitched Shape framelit I have used for the centre. Doesn't the stitching really finish it off beautifully.
For the inside I decided to keep it a bit fun and bold, using the 'Merry' die cut for the greeting to finish off the 'Ho, Ho, Ho' and some striped Candy Cane Lane washi tape at the bottom.
Finally, here is a top down perspective that shows up the lovely 'Holly' embossing folder and Santa. I coloured Santa with Copic markers to give a lovely smooth finish, but you could also use Stampin' Write markers. I used the glue pen on his hat and suit and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds glitter for a nice sparkle.
