Father Christmas Spinner Card

So this is my first ever spinner card!  Better late than never, I guess!

Santa has his sack nice and close to him.


If you slide the sack across with a finger - it stays facing up.  Or, you can just tip the card and it spins around as it moves across the page - lucky everything stays in the sack!

The sack seems to be getting away from poor Santa!

I stamped the images from Father Christmas onto Shimmery White cardstock with Archival Basic Black ink and then coloured them with Stampin' Write Markers (I used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Delightful Dijon, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, Garden Green, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso).  There's a touch of Gold Wink of Stella on the watch and trumpet and Clear Wink of Stella on the train.

I chose the Shimmery White cardstock because it's pretty and easy to stamp and colour but at the same time it's heavier weight than Whisper White cardstock

Once coloured, I then cut out the two images.

Stampin' Write Markers are easy to use and give lovely strong colours for a Christmas card

I made the Real Red card by folding an A5 piece of card in half.  I cut a layer of Shimmery White cardstock to size and then cut a slightly smaller Whisper White piece which I adhered to the card front so that the slider slot would appear white.

I cut the spinner slot using a die from the Sliding Star Framelits set and then embossed it with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  It's important to cut first and then emboss otherwise the embossing would be flattened when being run through the Big Shot again to die cut.

I placed Foam Adhesive Strips on the back of the embossed and die cut piece of card - taking care to leave enough space around the slot for a 5c coin to run freely.  I then adhered the piece to the card front (over the Whisper White piece) with a 5c coin under the slot.

I placed a dimensional in the centre of the 5c piece and stuck another 5c piece on top.  I then adhered the sack image to the 5c piece with another dimensional.

I attached the image of santa at one end of the slot using dimensionals.

I stamped the greeting from the Star of Light stamp set with Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card and cut it out with the banner from the Bunch of Banners set.  Using Real Red cardstock, I then cut the banner from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, folded it and attached the greeting before adhering it to the card front with dimensionals.
