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!
