Star of Light spinner

I haven't made a video of the action, but this is a spinner card, so the snow flake spins around in its circular track.

Spinner (or Slider) cards are so easy to make with the Sliding Star Framelits!

It looks complicated and clever but, in fact, it couldn't be easier!  The most complicated thing about it is that this interactive card style is known as both a spinner card and a slider card!  The Sliding Star Framelits set does all the hard work - all that's left is to decorate and get the mechanism going with some Foam Adhesive Strip, a couple of 5c coins and some Stampin' Dimensionals!

There are lots of great tutorials available but I like this one by Tami White. The only tips I would add are:
  • To help ensure that the middle circle is completely centred, temporarily keep the frame shape (that we don't use for this card) in position, then remove it once the middle circle is positioned.
  • I keep that frame for a future project - you never know when it might come in handy!

Before I started making this card, I wiped my Embossing Buddy over a piece of Night of Navy cardstock (already cut to size) and randomly stamped stars from the Star of Light stamp set with Versamark.  Having sprinkled with silver embossing powder, I heat embossed it.

I used one of the Starlight Thinlits Dies with Silver Foil Sheet to cut the star and then cut one of the smaller stars from Silver Glimmer paper for the centre of the star.  I glued my star to a small square of Night of Navy cardstock.  Simply because it was sitting right next to my Big Shot, I used the smallest of the Layering Squares dies but you could just as easily cut a small square with your Stampin' Trimmer!  I found that little square necessary to hide the coin underneath.

The greeting is from the Seasonal Bells stamp set.  I stamped it onto Silver Foil Sheet with Stazon ink and then cut it out with the matching dies from the Bunch of Banners Framelits set.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
