Unicorn spinning wheel

Hello lovely peeps

We did these spinning wheel cards at our last club session - there's a great video on Sandy Allnock's blog showing how to make them.

I used one of the Unicorns in the set from Simply Sweet stamps, along with some of the sentiments in the set. Normally I would have stamped the sentiment(s) through the aperture straight onto the wheel but since they are digi stamps I needed to be more creative.

With a temporary wheel in place I drew through the cloud aperture with a pencil, then span it around and repeated until I had four clouds drawn onto the wheel.

I scanned this into my computer and then in CraftArtist I dragged on and rotated the sentiments in position over the top of the clouds (one is from the Fairies set). I added in an extra circle shape so I could see where the circle die needed to go then printed it off onto 300gsm card (without the cloud 'background').

Once this was die-cut I attached it in place on the card where the temporary wheel had been. As you spin the wheel the different sentiments are revealed.

Other ingredients:
cloud dies from Joy Crafts
12x12 paper pad from The Works
Copics (N0, N3, RV11, RV32, RV34, B21, B24, YG01, YG03, Y13, Y15, YR31, YR04, BV00, BV11)
small brad
