Now, giving my brush lettering practising and the fact that my friend Ricardo always expects an awesome card, I came up with an idea that combines, Faux brush lettering, the popular quote and a spinning card.
The Card is actually very simple and easy to make.
The tricky part is getting the spinning to work and for that I have a few tips.
- Choose a sturdy cardstock for your card base. I used JAM 80 lb. dark gray cardstock. The file comes with a card base wit rounded corners, but I make my card bases using my paper trimmer and my corner chomper, that way I save on paper. There's a link at the bottom to the paper I used, it is a bit more expensive than others, but it is worth the price.
- Place your Foam tape to raise the front panel properly. Avoid the areas where the spinning mechanism has to go through.
- Make a sturdy front outer panel. I used 2 panels glued together with a liquid glue like Aleene's Tacky Glue
- Make your own foam dots. They have to be smaller than the slot where it slides. This is how I make mine.
Cut a piece of foam tape without removing the backing. Add a piece of backing paper on top to prevent the foam tape from sticking to your hole punch Slide it carefully in the hole punch There you go! Add another dot on top to make it double Stick it to your penny.
- Make a sturdy center panel joining two pieces with some liquid glue and pop it using foam tape in the same manner you did the front outer panel.
The spinning embellishment is very simple to make. Both, the earth and the moon are two pieces of cardstock glued on top of each other. After adhering them to the offset spinning path, add a generous amount of Clear Mod Podge. For the sun I used Gold Glitter Mod Podge to give it some sparkle.
|Glue the sun flat on the center panel to allow for the spinning embellishment to move.|

I hope you give it a try.
