A Bouquet of Birthday Wishes Just For You...

I needed to make a birthday card for a very special friend. So as usual, I began looking through my papers and stamps etc. to try to jump start my creative juices.
I came across this template that I had purchased at a stamp show this summer:

It is a Spinner Card template by Clever Cutts.
If you look at the center of the card, you will see that the sentiment actually spins around inside the little square:

It was easier than I thought it would be. There were several different  circular stamps that you could choose to go with the template. I chose "A bouquet of birthday wishes just for you...".
You stamp your circular sentiment on the 3 inch circle cut. I stamped  around the circle with tiny flowers from the Stamp Tapestry Stamp set "Moonlit Vase" . I then went over the letters with a clear glitter pen. After you fold all the score lines on the little square, you attach the circle with a brad. This enables the circle to spin!

After I put the card together , I felt it needed something else, so I die cut a flower with the Prima Donna Petals Die-namics (MFT) die set. I thought it looked great with the flower!

Oh... the beautiful DP is Hello Luscious-Basic Grey!

I think my friend really liked her card!

Thanks for stopping by!
