Kids Cards Blog Hop

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop Badge

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the Global Stampin’ Friends August Blog Hop.  We are featuring Kids cards this time.  Please use the list below to follow along with the hop.

For my card today, I have a really fun spinner card for you.  Fidget spinners seem to be all the rage now days – so what could be better for a kids birthday card?

My card base is Pacific Point card stock 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″.  Next I took a 5.25″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock and used the retired word window punch to cut a slit in the layer for the fidget spinner to spin in. I used the Better Together stamp set and some primary color ink pads.  Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Garden Green to stamp the birthday hats.

For the fidget spinner itself, I took an actual fidget spinner and traced it and cut it out of Pacific Point card stock. (Honestly, that worked, but I’m too picky, so I downloaded a clip art file and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo for the final card.)  I then punched out 3 1″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered them with liquid glue to the three points on the spinner.  Next I cut out 3 3/4″ circles from Basic Black card stock and adhered those over the top of the 1″ circles with a stampin’ dimensional. Finally, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and adhered it to the middle with liquid glue.

What makes the card spin is pennies.  I have one on either side of the top layer and they are attached in the middle with a stampin’ dimensional.

This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.Next, I adhered the top layer, with the fidget spinner attached onto the card base using stampin’ dimensionals.  This makes sure there is room for the penny on the bottom to move freely allowing the fidget spinner to spin.

This spinner card was made by Queen B Creations.The inside of the card has a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the same stamp set (Better Together) on the interior of the card in Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the hats (from the same set) in the upper left and lower right corner using Garden Green and Daffodil Delight ink. That layer is adhered to the card base with snail adhesive.

I hope my card inspires you to give you to give this spinner card idea a try!  I have provided a list of all Stampin’ Up! products used with links to purchase them from my store below.
