Ok: Let us start. I did all the coloring and creating of the platforms before starting.
Video inspiration: This is a card by Karen that demonstrates the technique. I will show you a few of the details.
Arms for Circle Twist Cards. If you pull down the menu there is a link to her blog and more photos of the cards and techniques.
Jalopy video. This one is helpful to go to the Web site and get a closer look at the spinner.
I love this die from Sizzix. Mine is nearly wore out, but I just use an xacto knife in the areas it no longer cuts.
When I make the backing card, I score in the center and then 1/8th inch away, this gives a bit more room over that edge.
On the home stretch. All that was left was to finish the front and add the clear panel. Finished.
Again I used the platform technique from the first card with the arms. This mechanism turns but predictably so. Just had to make sure everything fit inside the card when closed.
Of course after I had the inside finished, I needed to go to the outside. Note: Do any stamping on the outside before finishing the inside!!
So I decided to make a tag to cover it. This leads me to a great technique.
Cut out the label, stamp the sentiment on a scrap paper underneath. Position the negative over the words until centered perfectly.
Thank you for stopping by. Your next stop is: Jennifer
