Hello Paper Crafters!

Welcome To This Months  Blog Hop

"Anything Using Red, White & Blue"



How Fun is a Spinner card, Right?

It just makes me smile!!

Our oldest was born on July 3rd, So I thought this would be a fun card for the grandkids to play with after he reads it. (So it is more for them than him. Chuckle...)

So for todays project I will be using Well Written Dies and some circle punches.


So Let's Get To It!!

Supplies Used:

 Pacific point cardstock  8 1/2 x 5 1/2, & Some scraps for the head & ears (111350)

Real Red cardstock  5 3/8 x 4 1/8, 6 strips of 13/16" x 4" (102482)

Whisper White cardstock  5 1/4 x 4 (100730)

2 1/4" Circle punch  (Mickey's head) (143720)

1 1/8" Circle punch (ears) 

Subtle 3D embossing folder (151775)

Stars embossing folder (retired)

Well Written Dies (148534)

Sliding Star die (retired)

Scraps of Silver Glimmer paper (146960)

Tombow liquid glue (110755)

Dimensionals (104430)

2 Pennies


Let's start with the Stripes


My trick for getting my stripes straight...


Keep a strip without glue on it to place in between each row.


Move it up as you glue...


Punch out 2 circles with your 2" punch. 1 in Pacific Point and the other with the stripes.

Cut the Pacific Point circle in half and then quartered.

Punch 2 circles using the 1 1/8" circle punch for ears.


I always punch shapes out of those little scrap  pieces of Glimmer and Foil paper before I trash them. I store them in empty embellishment containers for  times just like this!!


I pulled out my stash of stars and glued them randomly  onto the 1/4 piece of Pacific Point cardstock.

Next glue the ears on.


Now, let's glue the 1st 2 layers together and cut out your spinner track, then emboss it.

I double embossed on this card just to see how it would turn out. I ran it through using the Subtle embossing folder 

then with the stars. LOL It is very subtle....


Now turn it over. We need to place DOUBLED Dimensionals on the embossed part of the card ONLY.

Place a single dimensional on 1 of the pennies and place it in the center of your track. Remove the backing and place the other penny directly on top of it and turn it back to the front.


Place another dimensional on top of the penny and attach the center of  Mickeys head to it.

Shake the card a bit, back and forth to round the dimensional on the penny,  so it glides smoothly in the track.


Now attach the card front to the card base by removing the backing on your dimensionals. 

Cut out your words from the Well Written Die set and glue them on the front of your card.

I did cut out Birthday to go on the inside of one of these cards for my sons Birthday!!


I hope you enjoyed my project today!
