During my vacation ... over a month ago ... wow, time sure goes by fast! Anyway, I decided to get a head start on my card making since it's going to be quite hectic when I get back. I had a lot of fun putting together this mother's day card! Also, the cool thing about this is that I knocked off 2 things from my list (make a mother's day card and use the Papertrey Ink Spinner Die Collection) ... yeah, I'm wierd ... I made a list of craft things I wanted to do this vacation ... I always do. However, this time, I wasn't going to stress out if I didn't do everything ... it was more of a list of what to do if I was looking for something to do ;)
Here's a close up of the card ...
It's a spinner card ... the Happy Mother's Day sentiment actually spins when you tilt the card from side to side. I had fun watching the circle spin back and forth when I die cut the pieces out ... "Hours of fun!" I told hubbie ... he just looked at me like I was nuts :P ... Wha!? I needed to test it to make sure it works :)
Initially, I was going to put a butterfly and have that spin ... however, it just didn't look right with the images I stamped. I tried several versions of the butterfly ... just didn't seem right. I thought of a flower but couldn't find the right one ... then it came to me ... yup, the sentiment spinning and I added the flowers, which I have a lot of too!
I stamped the same images on the inside of the card, so it matched the outside. I decided not to add any flowers ... wanted something simple for the inside. So, what do you think of my first spinner card?
Anyway, here's a video from Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink showing you how to create a spinner card with the die I used ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQVFpUgwKIc
