Double Beary Christmas Spinner

Hi there.  Just getting today’s card in under the wire for a challenge.  So it’s a quick one and it’s another Christmas card, but this time it’s an interactive spinner card.

 

 

Pair skating was the idea behind my card!. 😉  Stamped the bears and ice from NBUS Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays  on X-Press It paper with black Memento ink, coloured with Copics, then die cut out with the matching NBUS dies.

 

 

A white A2 card base was created from Bristol paper. Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress inks were blended with a mini blending tool for the background and spritz with water to give a snowy look.  NBUS Infinity Oval dies from Hero Arts were used to die cut the window opening on the card front and to create the frame.

 

 

The sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree was white heat embossed on black cardstock.  Silver thread was sandwiched between the bears’ paws and skates.  Clear shimmer was added for some sparkle to finish.

 

And here it is in action.

I am featuring the super sweet Magical and Magnificent stamp set and die in a spinner card.  Since the image faces right and I needed an exact image facing left for the back side, I did some reverse image stamping with my MISTI and Mirror Blocks stamp.  They were stamped with Memento black ink on X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and then die cut out with the coordinating die.  It was a little tricky diecutting the reverse images.

 

 

The frame and window opening were created with the Stitched Rectangle die set.  The frame was die cut three times from Bristol paper to give it strength.  The sentiment was stamped in black on the frame.  The inside stripe background was created with Post It label tape, Salty Ocean distress ink and a mini blending tool to give it a carnival look.  A few blue gumdrops finished off the card.  And here it is in action.
