It’s a spinner card and it is easier than it looks and you probably have supplies at home you can use to make it. I’ll list the specific supplies I used below and in the video I will share tip on what kinds of images work best for this card.

The punches and stamps are from Stampin up, if you don’t have a Stampin Up Demonstrator you can order from my friend Wendy Cranford she also has a blog with really lovely tutorials for free.  *If ordering less than $150 be sure to use the host code on her blog, orders over $50 get extra goodies!

Supplies:

I just wanted to mention is you don’t have dies you can use any cutting system that lets you cut a window out of the inside of paper or trace a stencil and cut it out with an xacto knife. Get creative with the stamps and punches you have and try it today! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
