Rough N' Tumble Spinner Card

(Card inspired by Kim L.)


C1256 Little Boys stamp set
C1257 Happy Birthday stamp set
Rough N' Tumble Paper packet
Indian Corn Blue ink pad
Clover Meadow and Outdoor Denim markers
Summer Bigger Brads
Oval Coluzzle template
3-D foam squares
2 pennies


1. Start with a standard size card base. Mount Sunny Yellow cardstock on top then layer it with a piece of Outdoor Denim cardstock (sanded) that is 4x 5 1/4".

2. Take a square of Cranberry cardstock 3 1/2"x 3 1/2" and layer a 3x3" piece of striped paper on top.

3. To create the track for the spinner, use an oval Coluzzle template to cut out one side of an arch, keeping it within the boundaries of the striped paper. Shift the Coluzzle over to the left to cut a matching arch. Use scissors to snip the two ends and complete the track. 

4. Stamp "Happy Birthday" on a small piece of paper. Use your markers to ink the words in different colors. I used Clover Meadow and Outdoor Denim markers. Before stamping, "huff" or breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink and then stamp. Attach the saying to the top left of the square with the spinning track. Set aside.

5. Stamp the airplane in Indian Corn Blue ink and cut out. To the back of the plane, attach a 3-D foam square and then a penny. That will be the front of the spinning mechanism. For the other side of the spinning piece, take the remaining penny and put a 3-D foam square on it, trimming off the corners of the foam to make it more rounded. Now put the behind the paper with spinning track, so that the 3-D foam is up and attach the plane and penny on top. You should have pennies on either side of the cardstock with the spinning rack. The plane then should spin back and forth by you moving the card.

6. Attach the spinning piece to the card with 3-D foam in the 4 corners of the cardstock, making sure the foam does not interfere with the spinning track.

7. Attach a small Sunny Yellow square on the lower right side of the card, with a Clover Meadow bigger brad. That's it! The spinning trick will be a huge hit!
