Happy Tuesday!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today and it’s a major WOW!!! This spinner card is just soooo cool. Be sure to watch the video to really see it in action!
Traditional red and green and just so precious with that little reindeer!!! Thank you to Jessica Ingold for this amazing idea! Let’s get started!!!
I started with a Garden Green Card Base (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and layered on a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″). Be sure to only put adhesive around the edges and then you can use your cut out ovals for another project. Next, I layered Cherry Cobbler (3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″) and a piece of the Be Merry Designer Paper (3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″) together. Using the Layering Ovals Framelits (3rd largest), I die cut an oval in the center. I placed this on top of my card base in the center and traced with a pencil around the middle of the oval. This helps to line up the oval on the card base layers. Be sure to open the card up when running the base through the Big Shot with the Layering Ovals Framelits. Again using the 3rd largest oval for this piece as well.
Now let’s work on that little reindeer spinner part. I stamped the reindeer from the Seasonal Chums Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Next, I colored him with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. Using the coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits, I die cut them out. Since I don’t need the tag portion, I snipped off the string hole and the fold. Now there are 2 separate reindeer. I added Fast Fuse to the back of both reindeer. Next, I placed some Silver Metallic Thread down the center and pressed it between the 2 reindeer.
Now to assemble the spinner. I added a small strip of Fast Fuse to the top and bottom of the oval (cherry cobbler layer). Next, I pressed the thread into it, making sure it was nice and tight. (Be sure your reindeer and designer paper are both in the same direction so your trees aren’t upside down.) Then I took some Tear And Tape and placed it over the thread and covering the Fast Fuse strip. Now it is time to assemble the card! I added Stampin’ Dimensionals all around the Cherry Cobbler layer and placed it on the card base, lining up the ovals.
For the inside, I die cut the 2nd largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and placed it in the center to give a nice background for the reindeer! Now just wind up the reindeer and close the card! When the recipient opens the card, the little reindeer will spin and twirl around!!!
