You've Gotta Try this! It's a Spinner Card!

Hey everyone! I just had to share this awesome technique with you. It may or may not be "new" to you, but it was new to me and I was so pleased with the results! It was so easy too! There are several alternatives and ways that this can be done, but here is my version. I wish I had video capabilities right now to show you the spinning in action, but this will have to do.

First, I used some very heavy cardstock to cut the wavy spinning panel with my cricut. You can download the template here. The spinning action is created using two pennies and a pop dot! (Not a difficult as you'd think). If you'd like a straight spinner, simply cut a long narrow rectangle inside a larger rectangle using scal. It's very simple. For a tutorial on how to make your own spinner card, go here.

The bottom border for this card is a fall leaves border, you can go to this previous post to download it. The cute little pumpkin nad Happy Halloween title are digi stamps from Dustin Pike.
