View Master Card

Good evening crafty chickies! I have a fun post for you today - this weeks challenge at Project Tuesday is to create a View Master Card! There are lots of ways to make these, you can find a couple of tutorials here and here. I kinda just made mine up as I went along, once you understand the basic technique you can pretty much wing it.

Friends of ours have just announced an imminent arrival, so I thought it would be cute to use the window for the "baby" sentiment, in a few different colours - including a pink and a blue of course. 

I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Labels on a circlular piece of Whisper White card four times - using Old Olive, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze ink.

The window was punches with the 1 1/4" circle punch.

There's a brad hiding under the leaf of the Rose Red flower - this is what allows the sentiment to spin.

The entire square layer is popped up on a double layer of dimensionals just to give the wheel a little more room to move.

I hope you'll give this fun card a spin (I know, I know - bad pun!) I wasn't sure I'd like the results, but love how it turned out.
