Hello there, As Christmas gets closer i am frantically making my xmas cards and getting them in the post. One of the cards i made this year is a cute spinning christmas card.

It is really easy to make with your fiskars tools.
Here is how you make it.....
You will need a 5 1/2"square card. I used Fynmark fundamentals embossed cards. Take some patterned paper and cut out a 13cm x 13cm square. glue to your card.

Take your 1"fiskars circle squeeze punch and cut a semi circle from the right side of your card.

Put your card to one side.
 Using the shape express and circle templates cut a circle from
card stock 4 1/2 "

Find the centre of your circle and put a brad through it. attach the circle and brad through your card also. This will create your spinner.

On a piece of scrap paper stamp or print out 4 small images and colour,glitter etc. make sure your pictures are no bigger than 1". Cut them out. I layered mine with  fiskars square scalloped squeeze punched shapes.

Put the images to one side.
Cut a 12cm x 12cm piece of card stock and a 11.5cm x 11.5cm piece of patterned paper. glue the patterned paper to the card stock. 1/2 way down the left side of the card stock cut a semi circle with the 1"Fiskars circle squeeze punch.
Using your Fiskars everywhere punch starter set punch a window on the middle left side of your card stock.

Lay your card stock over your card and spinning circle to see where to glue your images. glue the images 1 by 1 turning the circle to make sure you can see each one through your "window".

Place 3D foam pads on the corners of your card with the window in it. place over your spinning circle making sure that you have not stuck the circle and it moves freely.
Decorate the front of your card and the inside.I used some stickers and made a little frame to go around the window part of my card.

I have used Fiskars new double bubble border punch inside the card and the sentiment stamp is Fiskars cling stamp Christmas set.
