DCWV Hey Sailor! with May card sketch
This is my first ever spinner card! I was inspired by my friend Theresa's blog hop this past weekend featuring spinner cards. They looked so cool so I watched the tutorial. It didn't seem that hard and it really wasn't! I have been wanting to play along with DCWV, so this spinner and their sketch were a perfect match!
I am not tech savvy enough to do a video, so I am showing several pics of the card with the wheel in different areas around the spinner.
The base of my card is the DCWV paper (navy with polka dots), I used white card stock for the top layer and cut the circles with my circle cutter removing .25" between the two. I layered more navy and white paper from the DCWV stack using the sketch. I stamped, embossed and colored my image. I popped the entire "top" of the card on pop dots to give the penny room to move.
Here's their sketch. I couldn't put my embellishments along the rail of the spinner so I placed them up top to stand out more against the white card stock.
Here's a close up of the penny spinning mechanism really just pennies and pop dots! amazing! I do suggest purchasing round pop dots. I only had square so I snipped the corners off to round it a bit and shook it up like the video illustrated to round off the corners. The easiest way would be to just use round ones to start.
