Treat Yo'self Spinner Card

Treat Yo'self Spinner Card

I think this card would be perfect for anytime you plan on giving a gift card.
 You can customize to fit whoever you are going to be giving it to!!

I started by die cutting my top panel, spinner wheel and a spinner wheel template.

I started by figuring out where I wanted to place my spinning wheel. I folded my circle template in half both ways to get the center of the circle and popped a hole in the middle. I lined it up with my spinner wheel and punched a hole through the spinner wheel, perfect way to get the hole in the middle without folding my wheel. I then positioned the wheel on the top panel and pushed a hole through that as well. now my card will line up perfectly.

I placed the circle die that I am going to use for my window on the card front and cut it out. 

I attached my wheel to the back of the panel using a brad. I drew on horizontal and vertical lines on the back of the wheel so that I could see how far to turn it. Through the front I traced the circle and marked the bottom of the circles so that my images would be right side up.

I used the Don't Forget Lady Stamp set. I used the shoe, little black dress, make up and lingerie for my four items. I used my mini misti and also decided to clear heat emboss them. I added some color around the edges with some distress ink and some color to the images using copics.

I stamped my sentiments in black and reassembled the wheel to the card front. I die cut a notch in to the bottom of the card base and trimmed it down about a 1/4 inch. Then I added a strip of dark grey glitter paper and added a notch. I did this to help draw attention to the spinner. I attached the panel to the card base. Be careful not to tape down the wheel.

I went to add some red and black sequins and then realized that I had a green brad in the middle of my card! So to cover this up I colored the brad black with a Copic marker - when I did this I put a little scrap paper under the edge of the brad so that I wouldn't mess up my card. . . .If I had thought about it I would have colored it before putting the card together.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
