I have some fun news... starting today you can receive the exclusive mini stamp set, Hedgey Holidays, with a $35+ purchase from Sunny Studio. I have a holiday card to share featuring that cute little hedge hog from the set. I used the hedge hog, which is almost perfectly symmetrical, to make this into a spinner card, When the recipient opens the card, the hedge hog spins.
Spinner cards are very easy to make. You just need to make two of the spinning element to adhere back to back. For this card I started by die cutting a frame for the spinner. I used the Layered Snowflake Frame to cut out the opening in the card front and a separate A2 size panel which has a light sponging of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the edges. I Copic colored two hedge hogs and fussy cut them out. I then adhered some clear thread between the two hedge hog images. Using some strong adhesive, I secured the ends of the thread to the card front so the hedge hog is centered within the opening. I then adhered the inked panel over top. I added some snowflakes and holly leaves on both sides of the spinning hedge hog.
To finish off the front of the card, I added some stamped pines sprigs with berries and a two part greeting. I die cut the large Happy Word from green glitter card stock to layer behind a sentiment strip white heat embossed with hedge holidays.
I also needed to decorate the inside of the card since a large part of it can be seen through the snowflake frame opening. I made masks by die cutting snowflakes out of Post It Note paper. I placed the snowflake masks in a random arrangement and then gently sponged on some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink. I removed the masks and then splattered with thinned red paint.
