I think it must be the engineer in me that loves movement in even the most simplest as cards and I knew exactly what sort of card I wanted to make when I saw this weeks challenge over at the Less Is More Blog, especially as a little friend of ours is celebrating her birthday this week!!!
Spinner Cards are so easy – you need two matching embellishments or stamp images that are round (could be a football or tennis ball or something like this one here: and a 5p/5c piece.
First of all you need to colour your stamps and decorate the background to your card, its best to keep it simple because the focus will be the spinner – As you can see – the focal design is slightly bigger than the 5p piece.
Then using double-sided sticky tape stick 5p to the back of one of the images (TIP – make sure you align the coin and the image – it will make aligning the other image a lot easier).
Place the image and coin behind the slot so that the 5p fits snuggly in it and then stick the other image to the top of the coin again with double-sided sticky tape.
The resulting 5p coin sandwich will then slide and spin up and down the card when it is moved
