Fun Spinning Bunnies Card by Allison Cope

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope you and your family are safe and well.  For today’s card I’m going to create a spinner card.

How to make this spinner card...

1. I started by printing out the adorable “Bunny with Carrot” digital stamp.  I took the image into my editing software, sized it to my desired size and then took that image, duplicated it and flipped it to create a mirror image.  I colored them both up using Copic Markers.
2. I made a side folding card base, 5.5” x 8.5”, scored at 4.25” and folded it.

3. I created a front panel with die cut patterned papers and stitching.

4.  I temporarily adhered my front panel to my OPEN card base and took a circle die on top of the panel & the base together and sent it through my die cutting machine. The die only cut the front panel and the front of the card base.

5. I then fussy cut out my bunnies and taped a doubled up piece of white thread on the back of one bunny.  Then I adhered the other bunny on the back of the threaded bunny to created a string and bunny sandwich.

6. Then I stretched the bunny and string across the die cut hole on the card base and taped the string multiple times down to the card base to secure it tightly.

7. Then I adhered the patterned paper card front over top of the taped bunny string and card base.  The string is now sandwiched between the card base and patterned paper panel.

To “load up the string”, you just have to twist the string, hold the bunny still and then close the card.  The tension built up in the string will cause the bunny to spin once the recipient opens the card!

I hope you get a chance to make a fun spinner card too!

Hi, Margreet here.

I have worked with the Freebie which was behind Door 1 of Gerda's Advent calendar.
Here you can still grab it.
Every day a door will be opened and there are great prizes to be won.

I printed out the digi in a rather large size to fit the slimline die.
Then I coloured with copics.
I cut a dark red background with a slimline die from Carlijn Design.
For the second die with curves I used...
