Spinning Birthday Card
Dr. Sonja's Cards, Crafts and Kid's Projects Blog. Dr. Sonja's is all fancy and beautifully quilled, but I wanted a more classic simplicity look. I had colored this black and white Funky Double Birthday Cake from Sassy Cheryl's and decided it would be perfect as a spinner card. Well honey I will just tell you it took me a day and a half to get it all to come together. An engineer I am definitely not and in the future I will stick to coloring and only try new shapes when I have exact measurements. I put this card together and tore it apart so often that the poor paper is worn out. In the end it was not to difficult of a card and should have been more easy to make, but I sure made a long drawn out affair of it. But it is finished and here it is.
I made this for one of my tellers and her favorite color is teal. She is a pretty modern gal, so I think she will like the simplicity of the black and white and teal. Card stock is SU, Zebra paper and ribbons are from my stash. I used a bamboo shish-kebob skewer to hold the spinner piece. Popped some silver brads and aqua bling dots on it. I made a scalloped border with my SU punch and I was done.
So simple, I bet my grandchildren could have made it with they eyes closed. Hope you enjoy and if you want a tutorial click on the link to Dr.Sonja's blog in the beginning of this post.
