"Spinning Ornament" Card by Sue K.

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Sue K has cleverly created a Spinning Ornament card to share today. I hope you enjoy it.

TUTORIAL:
Cut smooth black cardstock, 110mm x 300mm, score in half length ways and fold. Using the Nestabilities circles, cut a circle 78mm in diameter
Cut smooth white cardstock 90mm x 90mm, Using the Nestabilities circles, cut a circle 72mm in diameter
Cut DS paper 100mm x 145mm, Using the Nestabilities circles, cut a circle 78mm in diameter
Making sure all the circles line up, the white will be hidden so if it is not centred that is ok!
Stamp 2 decorative ornaments using the Versafine ink, emboss with clear embossing powder.  When the embossing is set cut out and decorate with Copic markers.
Turn one of the ornaments upside down, run a length of black floss through the centre, add a piece of foam tape to the centre (this will add some dimension to the completed ornament), run a line of glue around the edge of the ornament , add the other ornament.  Hold together with some paperclips while the glue dries.
Attach the floss to the front of the white circle with tape, attach the DS paper over the top and then attach both layers to the black card base.
Cut the  black and white paper, 100mm x 145mm, adhere to the inside of the card with double sided tape.
Cut a green and white dotted strip, 100mm x 15mm, and a black and white decorative strip from the border of the paper with the ‘25’.
Attach both strips to the front of the card with double sided tape, attach the ‘25’ with foam tape.
Lastly, make a bow, for mine I have made it from 3mm white ribbon, and coloured it with the YG63 copic marker.  Attach the bow with glue.

Copics: R37, R39, YG61, YG63 (colouring the ribbon too), YG67
