Bee-u-tiful Card

I have a super fun card to share with you today. 
This is my very first spinner card. :)
The card base is from Wild Card but any circle card base (or make one yourself) can be used for this card.  I cut the card base out at 5" (in white) a black circle layer at 5", a light blue circle layer (4 3/4") that I added a little cut out on the right side and the face of the bee (not welded so they cut out,  using my Gypsy).

The yellow circle (added with a brad under the blue layer) rotates to reveal three Peachy Keen faces and a birthday message. I placed the brad in the center of the card but lined up the bee to cover the brad head. The little clouds are from Create a Critter as is the Bee.

I inked all around the blue layer and the clouds in royal blue ink. I added some Star Dust Stickles on the bee's wings, the clouds and the bee's body too. A little more on the sentiment tag finish off the card giving it a wonderful sparkle.

All the Peachy Keen faces are from the Everyday Face Assortment.

The fourth spot on the spinner wheel says "Hap-bee Birthday" using Marker font. I also stamped a little bee trail under the the bee using the same royal blue ink that I applied to the clouds and blue circle.

Here you can see the shaped card base. I just used white so it'll be easy to write inside.

The stamped sentiment is a mix of two different stamps from My Pink Stamper's Punny-licious. I punched it with my EK Success Photo Label punch and matted it in yellow and black. Lastly, I added some white gel pen stitches. I am super happy with the card.  I hope you all like it too! :)

If you'd like to make this card too, here is the Gypsy file for you:

Cheryl, this is super cute.  I love the spinner card.  Did you do a gypsy file on it that you can share?  I have been wanting to learn how to do a spinner card, but don't know how to do them.  I love it!

Cheryl,

My son and I are absolutely in love with this cute card!!! :)

We really don't have time before we leave for our trip Friday, but we just can't resist! We have birthday cards to make for two crafty girls who are definitely more creative than we are. Your card definitely fits the bill for something that they haven't thought to make themselves. We are so excited!!!!

Thank you so much (once again!) for so much inspiration!

Crafty hugs,

Jennifer
