Story Card Sunday: World to Me Spinner

Hi everyone!

Sunday means it is time for a brand new Story Card.

A Story Card made with clear stamps and steel dies from TechniqueTuesday.com

And guess what? This week's card has a special twist. It spins! Check this out.

Cool, huh?! Let me show you how you can make a spinner card just like it.

Start by die-cutting two base cards with the Story Card steel dies. Cut a large circle with the Circles steel dies, as well as two 1 3/4" circles. You'll also want to cut a heart with the Here Globe steel dies.

Adhere the large circle to the one of the Story Cards.

Stack the two base cards on top of each other. Do not glue them together. You'll see why in a minute. 

Set a circle die (the second largest one in the Circles steel dies set) on top of the stack. Run the entire stack through your die-cutting machine. If you are afraid of them shifting around, use a little Washi tape or Painter's tape to hold the die and base cards in place.

Now you are going to do a little stamping.

Pull out those small circles you die-cut earlier. Stamp the World to Me stamp onto one of them. And stamp a phrase from the Hello Darling clear stamp set onto the other. Affix the heart under the phrase.

Run a line of thin thread or fishing line from the top to the bottom of the card. Apply tape onto the card and onto the circle so the tape does not move. My advice? You can't use enough tape! (Wink!)

Flip the Story Card over and add a few more gems or enamel dots to your design.
