Ain't Love Grand Part 4

(This post was suppose to show up yesterday, but it appears I mis-scheduled it.  Sorry!)

Welcome to part 4 of my Ain't Love Grand series. Today's card makes me chuckle - I think it is so stinkin' cute.  This card is called a spinner card because it really does spin and  move!

I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator a long time (since 2002) and I can recall making a spinner card in my early years.  I was so fascinated by this "technique" I made quite a few of these.  Several years have gone by since I made my last one and I have to admit -  it was a lot of fun to make this type of card again!

The mechanics of the card are very simple - a couple of pennies and a few dimensionals.  What makes this card SO easy to make is the Word Window punch (in the "old days" we cut a slit with our cutter).  The punch is what creates the "track" for the pennies to slide along.  Here's a close-up of how the pennies and dimensionals are assembled:

Pennies This is very easy to assemble.  Here's how: 1) Place a dimensional on the image (in this case the 1 1/4" blue circle). 2) Place a penny on that dimensional 3) Add another dimensional on top of that penny then stack another penny on top of that.  So, you end up with two dimensionals and two pennies.

To secure it to the card, you will place the "track" between the two pennies.  This is what allows the object to spin. Here's a close-up of the penny on the track:

I hope you enjoyed today's very brief tutorial. This type of card can have such a "wow" factor.  Let me know if this tutorial helped you or if you have any questions.

Have a blessed day!
