Window Spinner Card

Hello everyone.  I have a fun card to share today. Plus, I have my first attempt at a short video. So MFT ran the series of Camp Create challenges this past summer and now they are hosting a Card Design Superstar contest.  Of course I am joining in the fun.  For my first entry, I wanted to do a window spinner card.  I’m not even sure if that’s what this type of card is called. I combined a tic tac toe, rainbow and frames challenges to create my card. All stamps and dies are from MFT.



One of the reasons I liked the Hog Heaven stamp set is the image of the piggy’s backside.  I just gave mine a heart tattoo on his left butt cheek that I drew in with a Copic multiliner and colored with Copics.  The balloons are from Blueprints 26.  I die cut two balloons from white cardstock and heat embossed the sentiments from Adorable Elephants with white embossing powder.  I then Ombre ink blended Ripe Raspberry Premium dye ink for a little emboss resist.




The card front window opening was die cut with Cross-stitch Rectangle STAX.  For reinforcement and stability, I cut two 5-1/4″x4″ white pieces of cardstock and die cut an opening in the middle with the same cross-stitch die to create a frame. For more stability and some detail, I die cut two frames from white cardstock with the Pierced Rectangle Frames.  I adhered baker’s twine down the middle of the opening and then attached the frames.  For some reason, I just love the idea of critters flying away on balloons, so I attached the balloons and piggy images back to back along the twine. I added some pink sequins for texture.

To create the sky background that appears through the window opening, I blended some Tumbled Glass distress inks and then die cut the stitched rainbow and clouds from white cardstock using End of the Rainbow.  I colored the rainbow with Copics then adhered my pieces to complete my background.  Really simple.




And here’s a short video showing how this card spins.  Click HERE to watch in HD.
