Magic Spinner

Happy Birthday To George.

Catherine took George out to London last night for his birthday. She purchased tickets for them to see Darren Brown. So she wanted me to make a card to pop the tickets into.

I had been meaning to try out the idea of making a spinner card for a while and so cut a
 magician character with the Cricut and the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I used a Craft Creations large card bank.
The patterned paper is from Magnolia and was mounted onto some card to stiffen it. then a slot was cut through the two using the Word Window Punch from Stampin' Up. The character is mounted onto two pennies with some 3D foam pads in between and one of these coins lays either side of the slot. The whole thing is then mounted onto the card blank with more 3D foam to hold it away from the card a little. Then hey presto, it spins!

I then added some miniature playing card from a Christmas cracker set. The greeting is a stamp from a Stampin' Up hostess set of birthday greetings.
So happy birthday George and I hope you both had a lovely evening at the theater. Hope you like the card too.
