Happy Thanksgiving Spinner Card

My DH sighs when another Product Release video from Jennifer McQuire pops in my mailbox and I start "Ooohing and Ahhhhing."  But, my reaction was different this week when I saw the Mama Elephant stamps and dies and the spinner card Jennifer had created.  "I can do THAT with my Explore!" I cried and DH sighed but with relief this time.   Here it is:-



I was so pleased that the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge blog decided to continue for a while and I was determined to participate in the Turkey and Canadian Thanksgiving challenge.  Coming up with something a little bit different from the inspirational projects offered by the DT was difficult until I saw the spinner card and envisioned a turkey revolving in the card!


I cut the card base from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 but in resizing the card I stretched the circular window.  I used the Hide Contour button to delete it and sliced another circle using the shapes button.  I used the circle that sliced from the card to create two circular frames for inside and outside the card.  These frames hide the knots that attach the thread that spins the turkey.



I cut the turkey from Autumn Celebrations.  One of the images is mirrored in the Edit panel and then adhered together over the thread.   (Who needs two stamps and dies? Haha!)  The pumpkins come from Create a Critter 2 and are contoured and shaded with my markers to add dimension.



The sentiment also comes from Create a Critter and the cooked turkey inside the card comes from Simply Charmed.   I embossed the front of the card with a Darice folder called Fall Leaves because it features lovely maple leaves.



If you'd like to try this card, my file reference number is:-

Thanks for visiting with me today and I hope all my Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  : ) Christine
