Today’s card is a little different than what I normally do.   I make a penny spinner card, it wasn’t as hard as I thought they would be.   I was very surprised at how easy it was.   I did learn some things not to do for the next card.   But, that’s for latter let me show you may card again.

I used a piece of tip top taupe as my card base cut at the standard size.  You know 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.   Next I cut a piece of Watermelon Wonder to 5 1/4 x 4 and ran that through the Big Shot using the Polka Dots Texture Impression Embossing Folder.  I mean come on who doesn’t think Polka Dots are happy!  Next i used my word window punch and pushed the cardstock in as far as possible and punched three times.  I started in the center then moved over to where the punch lined up with the edge of the cardstock and punched again, I also did this on the other side.   This made my slot for my spinner.   Next I lined up the dimensionals along the corners and about 1/2 down and above from the slot.   Next I added my penny to that just by lining it up and adding another dimensional centered on top of the penny, this will allow a little weight and hold the outside item in.   Next I added another penny to that dimensional.  I stamped and punched out my focal image using the cake from the stamp set.   I punched it out using a 2″ circle.   Next I used the 2 3/8″ scalloped circle punch and punched out a crushed curry scallop circle to layer behind.   I attached that to the dimensional with the two pennies.  Attached the card front to the base and bam It was done.

To finish off the card I stamped the inside using some of the Cherry On top DSP Stack and some watermelon wonder cardstock and a happy birthday stamped on the last layer.  I did everything at an angle to create more interest on the inside.
