Hello krafty friends! Danielle here with your
Krafty Tips and Tuts for this week.
I thought it would be fun to show you how to create a
spinner card using one of the fun stamps from
Ice, Ice Baby. Are you ready? Good! Let's go!
First you want to start with a cardstock panel sized
3 7/8" x 5 1/8" to create the slider/spinner opening.
I used a word window punch to create the slider opening.
You could also use a die cut if you have one that
would create such an opening.
Start on the far right side and make your first punch
then move the punch to the left and make a second and
third punch along the panel (it works best to make sure
that your cardstock is all the way in the punch as you move.
You'll end up with something that looks like this
After I did this I used an embossing folder and ran it
through my Big Shot to get a the snowflake texture on it.
Repeat that same process on a second piece of cardstock
sized 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and glue it to the first panel you've
created (make sure to use a good strong adhesive so your
layers don't separate around the slider opening.
(Here I hadn't yet cut down the top of the colored panel
to the size I mentioned above). Hint: it is a good idea
to stamp a sentiment (if you want one) on the first layer
either before you emboss or glue the two pieces together.
Next you will create your slider piece using a couple pennies and
some foam dimension dots (note: round ones work best).
Place one dot on a penny and two dots and another penny
on your image that will slide/spin on your card - like this
Then put your stamped image/element on both sides
of your panel (from the front and back).
Now you need to adhere the panel to a base.
I used a strong adhesive foam tape so that there is
just a little gap around the slider opening and some
depth to allow for spinning as you move the card.
(note: I put one more piece of the foam tape on my panel halfway
between the top and the penny for extra stability). Add to the
card base and now you have a spinner card.
As you move/tip the card from side to side the image
should spin across the opening - kinda like this:
(note: I tipped it and then straightened out again for the photo)
The first couple of times you move this it might spin
a bit slower - but the more you do it the faster it will start to spin.
What do you think? Wanna give it a try?
Thanks for popping in to see my tutorial today!
Hope your day is a great krafty day!!
