Hello everyone!! Recently I saw a few cards with spinners. I've never made one of those before and the idea fascinated me. So I decided to make one and since I'm in the Christmas card mode, the ornament seemed like a perfect fit ;)
I started with the ornament. I gold embossed 2 ornaments from Joanna Sheen's Make a Wish (this is no longer available, but happens to be my favorite). I colored them by sponging Distress Ink Barn Door and Vintage Photo just around the edges. The embossing resists the ink. Now to make the window, I die cut a oval from my white card base and a kraft card stock. I took a piece of fishing line and sandwiched it between the ornaments - the back side of the ornaments facing each other with the thread in between them. I hope that makes sense. I adhered it on the card base, with the ornament in the middle of the window. On the kraft card stock, I gold embossed the design and sentiment from Penny Black - A Bright Tomorrow stamp set. Now I adhered it on to the card base by aligning the window. It was pretty easy to make, but is so beautiful with the interactive element.
Hope you will give this a try. Allison Cope had a detailed video tutorial on the Power Poppy Blog.
I will be sharing a Fall card tomorrow using the new freebie from Inspired By Stamping newsletter, that will be in the newsletter tomorrow morning.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend.
