Interactive Tim Holtz Snowflake Spinner Card

It's time for a new challenge at Frilly and Funkie and our hostess Suzz has chosen the theme Trick or Treat.  She says, "I challenge you to create a vintage or shabby chic project with a trick or treat.  If you are feeling funkie you might want to incorporate a trick in your design or if you are feeling frilly you can incorporate a treat.  The trick or treat can be anything from a hidden pocket, unexpected design element, a treat hidden in the card or an unusual technique used on your project.  Make sure to include in your blog post a description of your trick or treat!"

I cut a 4.25 x 5.5" panel from watercolor card and embossed with the Tim Holtz Tiny Dots EF.  I sponged Evergreen Bough and Salty Ocean lightly blending so that there was more light green on the inside and darker blue on the edges.  I flicked with water and then traced and cut out the template.

I created a template for you to use if you'd like to CASE this card.  Please make sure to credit back to this post if you use the template.  :)  Print the template 5.125 x 3.4375" or 5 1/8 x 3 7/16".

I prepared my other die cut elements.  I layered my Distress Glittered snowflakes with foam tape.  I cut the Wish die from red glitter stock.  I cut the treeline and lined it up, fussy cutting away the excess and sponging the bottom lightly.  I wanted a slight red boarder, per wisdom from my sweet Logan.  I needed to cut out the center, so I used a rectangle die and saved the inside panel for another project.

I cut a sheet of kids craft foam slightly smaller than my panel, then traced the template again and cut out.  It was necessary to cut out a lot of extra so that the penny mechanism would fit inside of this section.  Test and make sure a penny is smaller than the width of every section of your cutout.

Sorry, but I forgot to photograph the backing panel.  I embossed the snowflakes along the edges then sponged to coordinate with my embossed panel.  I lightly sponged toward the center so that the little window left in the spinner slot would blend in with the overall design.

I ended up adding a silver backing snowflake to coordinate with my silver glitter stock mat.  To assemble the mechanism, just add a circular (must be circular) foam dot between your snowflakes and a penny.  Glue all of the layers together, nestling the penny in your craft foam cutout.

I couldn't resist adding a treat to go along with my card trick, ,so I made a coordinating little lantern filled with peppermints. 

I'm thinking this will make a great teacher's gift set.  I made a little video to show you how the card looks in all its spinning glory.  I truly hope you've enjoyed this project and are inspired to join our current challenge.  One lucky winner will receive a $25 voucher to the Funkie Junkie Boutique!
