Spinner Card TutorialPosted: 10th April Category: Create your own projects By: Louise R
Spinner cards are so much fun to make, and really very simple too! All you need is your normal card crafting supplies, and a couple of pennies! This tutorial uses the brand new DaisyTrail April Showers digikit.
Step 1. Open CraftArtist and start a blank project, using the Tent Card A5 folded option. Add the April Showers digikit
Step 2. Start a second CraftArtist project, following the same steps.
Step 3. On Project 1, add the front and rear backgrounds, as well as backgrounds and the message for the inside of the card. That’s the project 1 file complete, everything else will be done in project 2.
Step 4. On Project 2, add the landscape material, and position it so there’s a white border to the top and sides, and then crop the bottom to match.
Step 5. Use the Shapes tool to add a rectangle, rounding the edges using the slider on the left-hand side. Alter the rectangle size to 0.75” high, and 8” wide.
Step 6. Design the rest of the card, I added clouds, a rainbow, and balloons, and a message. Order the embellishments so that the rounded corner rectangle is the topmost layer. It doesn’t matter if any of the embellishments leak into the white border, because this will be cut off after printing.
Step 7. Add the topper balloon, size it, and then copy and paste it to page 4, before deleting the original from page 1. That’s the design complete!
Step 8. Next you need to print the project. Project 1 needs printing double sided onto A3 card, and project 2 needs printing single sided.
Step 9. Cut out the card, including the slot, and also the balloon topper.
Step 10. Place a foam pad in the middle of one of the pennies, and stick the two coins together.
Step 11. Slot the coin into the cut out rectangle, and then attach the balloon to the coins using double sided sticky tape.
Step 12. Attach foam pads to the back of the card front (I used 8)
Step 13. Your card is finished!
