Crazy Ovals

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is Just Add Eggs or OvalsJAI#255.

My immediate reaction to this would be Easter Eggs with only 2 weeks until the Easter Bunny arrives, but I was sure many others will head in this direction, so I have done something completely different!

I have never made a Spinning Card, so this was the perfect chance to try it.

Crazy About You

I love this Crazy About You bundle with the coordinating framelits. I wanted something fun so I chose a base card of Coastal Cabana with some Melon Mambo and Whisper White.

First, I cut the 2 ovals together before stamping the flower in coordinating ink. I also did it again on some scrap card and I used the 1-3/4″ scallop circle punch to cut it out. 

I punched two circles of cardstock with the 1/2″ circle punch and joined them together with 2 dimensionals, one on top of the other. Glue this to the centre back of the flower. Slide it into the gap between the ovals of the card so it will slide around the oval.

This is the spinning part. Move the large flower around the oval!

Crazy About You

I added the sentiment Bravo and some coordinating candy dots and a rhinestone to the centre of the flower. I used double dimensionals (one on top of the other) to sit the layers up so that the flower will spin easily around the oval.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope. I never send a “nude” envelope!

Crazy About You

This was such a fun card to make and not as difficult as I thought it was going to be!

  3. You’ve used a beautiful colour combo, Kate. I can’t quite visualise how the spinning part works, but it sounds fabulous! Lovely card. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink. 🙂
