A New Spin on TECC36


This week's Taylored Expressions cupcake challenge layout (http://www.tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/) immediately made me think of a spinner card. I'm not exactly sure why, but when I saw that circle shape on a diagonal, I just HAD to make a spinner! Since it had been a long time since I had made one, I went back to the SCS tutorial and it was just like riding a bike. Quite easy, and it all came back to me. Just make your "slot" before putting the whole card together, put a dimentional in between 2 pennies, then another dimentional on top of the "top" penny with your image that you want to spin, and then insert that spinning penny mechanism into your slot, and then finish your card. You also have to remember to attach your top layer to the bottom layer with a thick layer of dimentionals, too, in order to give the pennies room to "move." Here's the complete SCS tutorial: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/spinner_card/

The DP is from Die Cuts with a View Retro pack (I don't think I'll ever run out of that pad.) along with SU Old Olive and Cool Caribbean. The soccer ball stamp is from a retired SU set called "Sporting Goods." Some white brads in the upper corner, and some white gel pen faux stitching, as well as the word "SCORE" stamped with snap-stamps finish it up. I think the green stripe layer needs something added to it, perhaps the name of the person I'm giving the card to, or the name of their soccer team if they're on a team.... Like "Go Eagles!" Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend!

I'll be back tomorrow to share a 5x7 camping card for a special friend's birthday.
