Happy Wednesday, half way through the week and closer to the weekend. Plans have changed around here for the weekend. This past Sunday the skimmer on the pool filter broke so we closed the pool for the year. With my work schedule. I’ll be out of town mid month, made no sense to have a new skimmer installed, refill pool with water (lost about one foot of water) then drain it in a couple weeks to close the pool. Upside of this story, I will be making cards instead. 🙂
I’ve been having fun making spinner cards, with the new Sliding Star Framelit Dies and foam adhesive strips, you are only limited by your imagination. There was a piece of the new Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper laying around so I adhered it to the front of a Whisper White card base to use as the background. Next I took a piece of Whisper White 5½” x 4¼” (same size as card front) and using the circle framelit from the set, die cut the circle to use for the slider. Next I stamped random images from the Fresh Fruit stamp set to create my own designer paper. Happy Birthday is stamped in Real Red. The strawberry was stamped in Real Red, leaves in Old Olive and hand cut out, this will be used as the spinning image.
To complete the card I adhered the Whisper White front piece with foam adhesive strips (at the top and bottom) and used foam adhesive strip pieces on the circle as well. To create the “spinner” I used 2 pennies adhered together with a dimensional cut to look like a circle and the strawberry is also adhered with a dimensional, just slide one penny into the groove and the spinning begins.
