cupid spinner card tutorial

Hi there, I have a little spinning card tutorial for you today- please excuse my work area... my mat has given up the ghost, so I'm working directly on the table! today I am working with Cupid , yet another image from this month's colouring club!

  1. in your image editing software size cupid to 10cm x2 and flip one image.
    2.print, and fussy cut, or cut out on your electronic cutting machine- I used my Brother Scan 'n' cut. I always cut before colouring, in case something goes wrong - sometimes things shift on my mat, and I'd rather err on the side of caution!tut 1 3. put one of the images (it does not matter which one) face down, add DST to the top and bottom, and run a piece of thread down the middle. leave the ends long for now!tut 2   4. add more tape to the outside area of the image, and add the other one (face up) to it. this is why one image was flipped in the first stage. tut 3 5. Now the fun begins- you need to find yourself a circle die, or a circle to draw around and cut out - I used Sizzix Framelets circle dies (the largest one) tut 4you  will need to be careful that the papers and your card blank line up once your circles are cut- take it from me, this is not always the easiest task, and is why I've minimised my layers - just the card blank (14.5cm square) and a patterned paper. you may also notice later in this tutorial, my paper changes, as I changed my mind! my suggestion is to use low tack tape, to make sure neither the die, papers or card blank shift when cutting. tut 56. add a little tape to the top and bottom of the circle on your card blank, and attach cupids string to it- you want a little string at top and bottom, and you need to make sure the image will not snag on the edges of the circle. 7. now you carefully adhere your patterned paper on top, making sure everything lines up. (I'm sorry, here some of my photos weren't the best, so I will have to talk you through to the end!) tut 7 8. finish how you wish! I diecut another circle to place behind the image, on the inside of the card, stamped a sentiment, added some die cut hearts, and freehand doodled around the edge. Then have a spin.... :) thank you for sticking with me through this, and do let me know if you decide to give it a try...
