In the Spotlight Spinner Card

This card was so quick to make! I have made a few a these Spinner cards before but I watched Monica's Video Tutorial this morning and it jogged my memory......

Pop over to Monica's Blog and watch her Tutorial......

I used Pink Passion Cardstock for the base, then a piece of designer paper from the Petals & Paisley paper pack. Then I added a 4.5cm strip to the card in the centre and stamped the sentiment in the centre. I used my stamp a ma jig to make sure I stamped the Happy Birthday straight.

Then I took a piece of Pink Passion cardstock and found the centre line and punched both ends with the 1/2 circle punch. I then used my cutter to join up the punched circle to make the groove cut out.

I stamped the Flowers from the In the Spotlight Level 2 stamp set and added the Friend stamp in the centre, which I punched out using the 1/2 circle punch. I added these to the pennies that make it slide. The first pennie is on the back of the flower then a 3D foam pad (from SU) then another pennie. You then slot the pennies in the groove and Hey! the flower SPINS along the groove when you move the card.

Thanks for looking,
