Tutorial: Interactive Spinner Card

Today I wanted to share with you how I made this cute spinner card featuring one of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp sets, “Let’s Roll”.

Okay, let’s roll!

First make the card base and prepare the background pieces.

Cut an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock in half (8.5″ x 5.5″) and score at 4.25″.  This will give you two A2 sized cards, use one on your next project.

IMG_2117wTrim the patterned piece to 4.25″ x 5.5″ to perfectly cover the front of the card base.  Trim the light pink piece to 4″ x 5.25″ to leave a small mat around the edge of the card front.

Now it’s time to make the track for our sushi friend to spin around in.

Cutting both dies at the same time is the easiest way to get a perfect circle all the way around.

Place two consecutive sizes of circle dies where desired on the front of your light pink piece. Keep them in position with some low tack artist tape, or washi tape.IMG_2120wAfter cutting you are left with a card stock circle that fits perfectly inside the larger piece with a 1/4″ track all the way around.  Save the waste piece to use as a frame for another project.

Next, stamp your images.

To save time, put more than one stamp on your acrylic block.

Once all of your images are stamped, it’s time to start coloring!!

Use your favorite coloring method to fill in the images.  You can use alcohol markers, water color paints, or colored pencils.  For this card, I chose my Derwent Inktense pencils and gamsol.  These pencils blend beautifully and have great coverage.

Collect all your pieces and get ready to assemble!

And finally, assembly!

Using the coordinating dies, cut out all of the images you colored.  Place a circular foam dot between the two pennies to create the base of the spinner.

To finish putting the card together, adhere the pattered cardstock piece to the card base.  Then, adhere all of the elements to the solid cardstock piece.

I decided to add some yellow flowers to fill in some of the empty space on the card

Using foam tape, pop up the solid card stock piece and the circular piece on the front of the card.  Glue the sushi piece to the pennies and tuck into the track.IMG_2152wAdd some glossy accents to the lid of the soy sauce (or even the whole bottle if you are ambitious) and some liquid pearls and you’re done!
