Spinner card

I needed a card for my youngest daughter's 4th birthday. We had the party yesterday but her birthday isn't actually until tomorrow. I was going through some old cards I had made and came across this one and figured it would be perfect for her. She loves the color pink.

I found the directions for this card in a Paper Crafts magazine. Basically what you do is stamp your spinning image on two circles and then sandwich a string (or thread) between them. Make sure though that you have one image right side up and the other image upside down when you put them together. That way when you open the card up, the back image will be right side up in the card. You will also need to make a cover with a circle cut out for the inside front of your card so that the ends of your string are covered. When you are completely done making your card, you twist your image around a few times and then hold it while you shut your card. When the recipient opens the card, the image will spin.

For this card, I used:

Stamps: CTMH's Kid's Art-Party

Papers: CTMH's watermelon, hydrangea, white daisy

Inks: CTMH's archival black, baby pink, watermelon, hydrangea, chocolate
