Butterfly Spinner Card

Hi friends, I hope you had a good weekend!

I recently made this fun spinner card for my Mom’s birthday. I stamped the butterfly twice and fussy cut both images, leaving a bit of white around the whole butterfly. I used a light yellow piece of cardstock with the sunburst die, then used a circle die, slightly larger than the butterfly, to cut a circle out of both the yellow panel and the front of my white card base. I stamped a sentiment inside my card, under the circle opening, so it’s not visible when the card is closed.

To make the spinner part of my card, I cut a piece of white thread a bit longer than the circle opening. I glued the butterflies together, with the thread in between, then taped the thread just above and just below the circle opening on the front of the cardbase. After adhering the yellow panel to the front of my card base, I die cut ‘hello’ 3 times from white cardstock and glued them together for some dimension. Before adding the sentiment to the front of my card, I added some clear glitter over the top.

Now for the fun part! I twisted the butterfly many times, then closed the card. Watch what happens when the card is opened :)

I really enjoyed making this type of card, and want to do it again. One thing that would be better, though, is to make sure the image I want to use as the spinner is symmetrical. This butterfly image is slightly different on the left and right side, so it didn’t line up perfectly when I glued them back-to-back. It would also be easier if the stamped image has a die, since I’m not the best at fussy cutting :)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
