Bear on Ornament, Circle Spinner Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #128)

Happy Friday everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #128, Tiere im Wald / Woodland (Forest) Animals.

A prize for one lucky winner this time is a CD-Rom with Christmas printables. :o)

For this challenge I made an Interactive, Bear on Ornament, Circle Spinner Card. I love interactive cards! This is my first spinner card and I'm very satisfied how it turned out. :o)

Details about my card...

First I made card base, panel and spinning mechanism. I used Crafter's Companion Neenah Desert Storm Kraft Coloring Card and white on red polka dot paper from Crafter's Companion Bebunni Christmas Paper Pad.

How to make Circle Spinner Card I've learned from this video tutorial on Lawn Fawn's YouTube Channel.

I made a small difference in spinning mechanism: I used two coins and joined them together with a magnet and glued everything with UHU super glue. I did this after my mechanism started to fall apart. I made a mistake and used large heavy coin. When I glued a foam and image together with coin, everything fall. So, I didn't want to ruin my card construction and pull out coin, instead I used one more coin, small rounded magnet I had in my stash and glued everything together. This worked and it still works! :o)

Image I used is from C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps 'Christmas With Ralphie' stamp set. I stamped a bear on ornament on white watercoloring paper, colored him in watercoloring technique using Distress Inks, water and fine brush.

After drying I fussy cut the image and colored edges with black Stabilo pen. Then I stamped another image on a white cardstock paper, glued colored image over it and fussy cut it, but this time leaving white border around the image.

When I placed the image on card I didn't like it, so I fussy cut whole image, removing white border, stamped another image on the Kraft cardstock paper, glued fussy cut image over it and (again) fussy cut image leaving border around it. Better repair than threw away. :o)

Satisfied with the image, I glued 3-D foam on the outer coin and image on it.

At the end I stamped sentiment on the piece of Kraft cardstock paper. I used part of sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Mr. & Mrs. Claus' stamp set. I stamped it with Distress Ink Walnut Stain. I cut out banner, glued 3-D foams on it and placed it on the card.

Here is a short video of my Circle Spinner Card. Looove this! :o)
