A Spin on Greeting Cards, Part 2

I first began working on the spinning platform used in Judy Keating’s post this past Wednesday, early in October 2011.  I am very appreciative to Judy for the  how-to video created, explaining how the platform works and installs in the card.  These are the results of my first finished card, using the platform.

All designs for creating this card are included in the links at the end of this post, except for the skeleton.  It is a design from Digital Designs by Stephanie.  There are 2 options included for the front of the card, one with the jack-o-lantern and another with a plain pumpkin.  In the picture below the moon is covered with yellow glitter and “BOO!” is covered with black glitter.  The ghost eyes are vinyl placed on top of the ghost figures.

Many of you are aware that I am always looking for another way to uniquely share gift cards with my friends and family.  I made the following card for my daughter’s birthday.  The entire card was made with cardstock, all cut on my 15″ MAXX.  A little pizzazz was added to the front with glitter.

 While she appreciated the gift, what was really fun was the presentation of the gift card in a small envelope, attached to a pedestal, that swung around as the card was opened.  Everyone at the party wanted to open and close the card to see how it worked.  I didn’t think to take pictures before signing the card, so the samples below have our personal greeting.

All designs for creating this card are included in the links at the end of this post, except for the dancing candles.  They are My ScrapChick Designs.   The hearts on the gift card envelope are stickers.

  1. These are just TOO COOL! It really adds that extra little “kick” to any card. Thanks Lynn. I can’t wait to make one of these.

  2. FUN cards, Lynn!! I am lucky enough to have my very own copy of the Halloween one. I like the “lattice” fronts on the cards and the use of the patterned paper on the inside of the birthday card is a great background for those cute candles. I love working on projects with you. Thanks!

  3. You girls are just having too much fun with these nifty cards! Thanks for sharing so generously!
