Been a while

It has been a day since I made a spinner card. I think it’s that kind of interactive design that is just timeless. And, maybe the reason that someone might get hooked on papercrafting. The beauty of a spinner card is that it doesn’t have to be super involved. Make the spinner element the star (pun totally intended), and the background and sentiment becomes a supporting character.

Nested dies make spinner designs as easy as can be. Of course, Scrapbook.com carries a whole line of nested dies. These stars couldn’t have worked out better. Actually, the more I look at it, the more I feel like I should be advertising for a department store (you know the one…). I seriously just saw that, and now I can’t unsee it. This card shall forever be known as the Macy’s Card.

You can make this card!

And, I’ll show you how 😀 Even if you’re an old hat to spinner cards and really just need the photo reference (don’t forget to pin a pic), I’ve got some helpful hints on cutting the spinner opening and assembling the spinner itself. Enjoy!

  1. Pretty card..like the colors ❤️ Cherished memory is spending Christmas with my family that is long distance from where I live. TFS

    • Lovely card. Ive never nade a spinner card but it sure looks fun. We spend a little bit of the day with my husbands family. I dont have any family left but I try to incorporate some of the traditions I grew up with in our holiday. I will give this. Try with your tutelage.

  2. Love the sparkle and the design! We have so many traditions from finding the perfect tree, to dated ornaments, to photos with Santa! Can’t wait to celebrate this year with the 2 1/2 year old and 7 month old!

  3. Love interactive cards. The spinning star
    shines so bright. I look forward to
    getting my Santa’s out of storage
    and putting them around the house.
    There’s a lot of them so it takes awhile.
    thanks for sharing

    • Loved the card and thanks for the tip about not getting the lines of the die on your project

      Christmas memory: Walking down a road in our town as a child just to look at other people’s outside decorations

  4. THANKYOU THANKYOU as have always wanted to learn to make spinner cards. You gave such precise instructions that I know I can make these. Love watching you create and you always inspire. Favorite holiday memories is going to Midnight Mass. Blessings

  5. Love your spinner card and all the gold. I do believe I could make one of these now. TFS!!! Your instructions are easy to follow. My favorite Christmas traditions is the family gathering for Christmas Eve.

  6. Love this card. I’ve never made a spinner card but I’m going to try it now. My favorite tradition is our family game night on Christmas Eve. The elves deliver new pajamas, we eat appetizers and pizza and play all sorts of games. Thank you!

  7. What a neat card idea! Looks super simple … and you could use just about anything in the middle, hearts, balloons, pumpkins, etc. Christmas is filled with so many memories. My favorite memory is being with my Grama and seeing what color her tree was each year … either traditional (multi color w/ silver icicles), or a Chrismon tree with white/gold ornaments (all of which were hand-made). This will be our 2nd Christmas without her. I would give anything to see her tree again (she was 102 the last time she put her tree up … She would have been 104 on Dec. 3rd.) I miss her and all her traditions!

    • This is the first spinner card I’ve seen made. Fun and relatively easy. Treasure holidaymoment: when your colleagues insist on getting their ówn handmade Christmas card because the liked the one from last year so much they don’t wanna share with the whole office.

  8. For some reason, I have never made a spinner card. I think they are lots of fun, but have never actually made one. Yours is wonderful!

  9. So awesome that you are in this hop lineup! Love your creativity and talent! My cherished Christmas memory is when I was little and got a doll house one year! 🙂

  10. What a cool spinner and I LOVE the GOLD BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite Christmas tradition is Reading the Polar Express with the family on Christmas Eve!

  11. you made that look easy, I am so going to try it out. We pick a night to get with some of our family. we have snacks and go look at this one house that puts out hundreds of blowups each year. You get to walk around their yard because there are so many.

  12. Beautiful card! Love the gold and red combination and it’s a spinner too! My kids love driving around and seeing all the decorated houses since we don’t decorate outside. It is a treat for us.

  13. Lovely card. One of my cherished memories is admiring my grandmother’s lighted bubble lights…as a child of six years old, that was a spectacular sight!

  14. I think I missed including what I am looking forward to this holiday season in my comment. I had fun leaving a unique comment on each stop on the hop and it makes me happy to realize how many wonderful traditions and blessings I have during the holidays. I’m looking forward to wrapping each gift with love and and adding the special touches I enjoy so much.

  15. Love the interactive star card!!! Love making Christmas cards and this would be a fun one because it would spin and make people so happy with all the sparkle!

  16. Love your beautiful card! Fun spinner card with gorgeous colors!
    A cherished memory is making Scandinavian Almond Bars nearly every year since about 1987. A friend made them and shared the recipe. It’s been a family favorite ever since and one of my go-to holiday baking recipes!

  17. I just learned something new! I had seen shaker-card vids before, but believe it or not, never a spinner card. Thx for the tutorial & the “bonus” tips. The cards turned out great!

    My all-time favorite handmade gift is a sweatshirt my college-roommate’s mom made for me. It was counted cross-stitch w/“I Love Music” across the top, then a penguin playing the xylophone. I had never owned anything w/my instrument on it before, so I was thrilled!! I still have it – can’t part w/it!! ?

  18. I love a good spinner and this is one! Very clever! Thanks for all you hard work in putting this together. It was fun hopping with you!

  19. Fantastic card!!! We put our tree up each year the day after thanksgiving…we typically go out and cut our tree. This year there weren’t many good ones to pick from…so we went with a precut tree…still fun to explore the lot and a lot less grumbling about hauling a tree for acres to the truck!!!

  20. Hi Nicole 🙂 This is adding a new technique to my repertoire of card making….love it!!! One of our favorite holiday traditions is hot chocolate and star gazing! Thanks for inspiring me 🙂

  21. Very cool card, I feel like I could make a spinner card! I am looking forward to Christmas and all the yummy cookies I’ll be getting at the super fun cookie exchange – my new favorite tradition (it’s the 2nd year of participating)lol
