Pumpkin Penny Spinner Card

Good morning friends

Yesterday, fellow Designer Challenge Teammate Raquel Mason came up with the coolest Spinner/Slider card using the Ring Accordion. So brilliant! As soon as she showed us, I couldn't get it out of my head and had to try one of my own.

Raquel shared her card with the Designer Challenge Team a few weeks ago, and since I had Halloween on the brain I immediately went for a Halloween Spinner. I didn't think about the timeline,  or I wouldn't have made it in this theme. However, it will still work just fine and I can put it aside for Halloween 2017!

First I cut two Ring Accordion's from black card stock and adhered them together for stability. Raquel left her pivoting tabs on so she could have two separate slider/spinners (see? Brilliant!!) but since this was just a sample I cut the centre portion completely away and trimmed all the tabs. That means the pumpkin spins all the way around the 'track'.

I could't help myself and added wiggly eyes to the pumpkin embellishment. His toothy grin got the Glaze Pen treatment so they are nice and shiny in the light. So fun.

I don't know to do little video's for my blog, but here is another photo showing the pumpkin spinning around - he rolls so smoothly with the help of pennies.

Here is a peek at the inside. I just love that patterned paper with the multicoloured eyes. The 'Spooky' is a die cut embellishment, and it's actually glossy black which doesn't show up at all in the photo.

Now that I have this Penny Spinner/Slider card done, I have all kinds of ideas on others. It's been ages since I made one and I've been itching to do another slider card for the last little while. Raquel's idea to use the Ring Accordion was just what I needed. Considering this was just going to be the prototype, it ended up making a cute finished card!
