Hello! I’m joining in today with the Freshly Brewed Projects blog hop where the theme is ‘for the guys’! I’m always looking for inspiration for cards that guys will appreciate because they take a little more thinking! With a catalogue filled with flowers and girly things, it can be a little harder to create something that’s appealing to the male mind.
I’m sharing a Spinner Card made using some of the products from the World of Good Suite. This suite is a collection of rich colours in a travel theme that works well for everyone, including guys.
I only bought the dies from this suite (not the stamp set, but I’ll probably get that soon to complete the set!), but the World Map Dies and World of Good Speciality DSP are all you need to create this spinner card.
I think all of the pictures I took have the same globe side showing but there’s actually two different globe dies in this set, which I have layered front and back. When you twist/flick the globe it spins around in the free space of the card front.
The globes have a piece of twine running through the middle which is attached between the DSP and card base layer. The circle space was cut using one of the circles from the Layering Circles Dies.
The inside panel is embossed using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. The crinkle effect is awesome! I didn’t take a picture of the writing panel, but I added Whisper White cardstock to the back for the birthday message.
The birthday sentiment from this card is from Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set – which is getting a workout on my blog this week! Haven’t ordered yours yet? Trust me, it’s a set you’ll use over and over again for all your birthday card needs!
