Spinner Cards- the easy way!

I'm going to do my best to fill in for the next couple of Thursdays while our fellow baker, Deena, is recovering from surgery.  I should have no problem doing so, since I raided her stamp room of all kinds of FUN and exciting products that she hasn't even had a chance to play with yet!


The first thing I couldn't wait to get my hands on was the new Thinlits Circle Card die.  Since I hadn't used it yet, I was playing around with some retired DSP and coordinating retired colors, but you can see from these cards, any color and dsp combo would work just as well.

This die allows you to make a circle spinner card, just by running the card stock through the Big Shot.  It scores and cuts this awesome 3-D action card!  LOVE IT!  It also comes with a couple of cutesy words and other little components to add to your card.  The cutesy words were a little hard to pop out of the die, but word on the street is that you can sandwich some wax paper between the card stock and the die, and it will pop right out.  (I refuse to walk past my pantry to get to the wax paper, because I will not be able to resist finishing the peanut butter M&Ms that have been whispering to me for the past 30 minutes.)

And let me tell you what else is awesome about this type of card...there's not really that much room to write anything to your recipient!  Let the cool card do all the work for you!!



Ingredients:

  • Certainly Celery card base
  • Retired Cottage Wall DSP cut to 5 1/4" by 2 3/4"
  • Whisper White card stock, 2 1/2" circle punch
  • Thinlits Circle Card die
  • Big Shot
  • Four You stamp set
  • Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, and Certainly Celery markers
Baker's Tip: I inked up the stamp with the Saffron marker first, swiping it across the middle of the "Thank".  I did the same to the top and bottom thirds of the word with the other two markers.  I thoroughly cleaned my stamp and did the same to the "You".
