So Many Snowflakes Spinner Card #GDP271


My So Many Snowflakes Spinner card is just perfect for this weeks Global Design Project Theme - Winter / Holiday!

To check out what the design team and other participants have created, click on the image below!

I've never made a spinner card before, I got the idea from Lucy Tustain following a card swap that took place at the #PinkiesRetreat2020. 

Lucy's card inspired me to give it this style card a try. I love how twisting the string creates movement so simply. To check out Lucy's card, click here 


Using the Feels Like Frost patterned paper, I've created an extended snowy forest scene by lining up two pieces of DSP together. 

I took some time to do this so that the folded image matches up to the image on the inside of the card when folded flat


I die cut two snowflakes from the beautiful Balmy Blue Gimmer Paper for my centrepiece and added a Blue Adhesive Backed Gem to the centre on each side.

I'm so going to miss that glimmer paper..... but don't worry, I've got some stashed :)


I positioned a white circle (dry embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder) so the snowflake stands out better. 

This wasn't essential but I preferred it like this.


I heat embossed in white the Special Delivery sentiment from the Wishes and Wonder stamp set. I wanted the sentiment to be subtle, to not distract from the beautiful winter scene.

In the run up to Christmas I'll continue to share Christmas card ideas with you. I'm very much going to miss Christmas crafting but these blog posts will always be available at any time of the year for those that need inspiration and ideas for stamp sets and patterned paper you've invested in.
