Love is in the Air! A Penny Spinner Card - Trimcraft DT


Hello, I'm back to share a Valentines card with you.  I love to make penny spinner cards, you may spot a few in my Trimcraft gallery or on my facebook pages, but this time I’ve made a valentines themed one using the new Simply Creative ‘Around the World’ papers which team perfectly with the Dovecraft hot air balloon die.

I have made a little video to show the card in action: https://youtu.be/NJWp0D1ySyA

and here's the Step by Step:
  1. To create the penny spinner base card you may find it easier to follow my previous Trimcraft Tutorial link here: http://www.trimcraft.co.uk/articles/first-edition-travel-notes-penny-spinner-card-tutorial Use cloud pattern paper from the Simply Creative ‘Around the World’ 6x6 paper pad for the background and to cover the central circle.
    Use the hot air balloon pattern paper from the same pad to cover the raised panel.
  2. Die cut the hot air balloon from different papers in the pad and again from Kraft card, glue the papers on top of the kraft card to give strength to the piece.  Dovecraft red glitter card has been used for the heart on the balloon.
  3. Die cut 2 clouds from white card using the First Edition Weather die set. 
    Stamp letters to spell out ‘LOVE’ on 1 cloud using black ink and the S/C Alphabet stamp set. 
    Stamp letters to spell out ‘is the Air’ on the other cloud. 
    Glue the ‘LOVE’ cloud at top left on card front and the other cloud into the centre circle.
  4. Use perma fix tape to adhere a 1p coin to back of hot air balloon shape, add 3D foam to centre being careful to only place in the centre and add the 2nd 1p coin.  Slip the bottom coin under the channel on card front and test the spin. 
    You can carefully pull apart to adjust the foam if required, you may need a double height of foam.
