Step-by-step instructions to make this card

1 Cut a 5”-square piece of white cardstock and use Acorn Brown ink to stamp the border around the edge.

2 Stamp the window into the centre and die-cut using the nearest circle die in size. On the remaining square die-cut a circle in the centre 2cm larger in diameter, this will be the frame for the spinner card.

3 Stamp the stained-glass flower onto scrap white cardstock and die-cut into a circle. Die-cut a slightly larger circle from yellow cardstock. A stamp-positioning tool is excellent for creating straight borders and matching corners

4 Cut a 5¼”-square piece of yellow cardstock and lay the white frame over it. Use the outer circle as a guide to stamp the sentiment four times in onto the yellow cardstock as shown. Colour the window and flower using alcohol markers.

5 To create the spinner mechanism die-cut two penny-sized circles and attach together using a 5mm circle of 3D foam tape. Apply a thin width of foam tape around the edge of the white frame and adhere to the yellow panel, then layer this onto a slightly larger piece of pink cardstock and attach to the card front.

6 Add 3D foam tape onto the reverse of the window and fix into place with the spinning mechanism in position at the edge of the circle, sealing it into the channel. Adhere to flower embellishment to the spinner.

7 Add gems to each corner of the frame and the centre of the window and spinner to finish.

Step-by-step instructions to make this card

1 Cut a 6”-square piece of vellum, stamp the flower randomly around it including over the edge and heat emboss using white powder.

2 Cut a 4¾”-square piece of white cardstock. Rub different colour Distress Oxides onto a glass mat and spritz each one with water, then use a paintbrush to apply colour all over the cardstock. Leave to dry.

3 Stamp the rose window onto a 4½” square of heat-resistant acetate, cover with white embossing powder and heat emboss. Use a Sharpie to colour in the reverse of the design. Always wipe the heat resistant acetate with an anti-static bag before stamping to get the best fix for the powder

4 Create a frame by cutting a die-cutting a centre square out of the inked cardstock and mounting onto a slightly larger coral square frame, then attach the acetate square to the reverse with the embossed side forward as shown.

5 Attach the completed frame to the vellum using 3D form tape then apply glue to the back of the vellum, behind the frame where it won’t be seen and adhere to the card front.

6 On the off-cut of inked cardstock, stamp the greeting and heat-emboss in white. Trim to size and carefully split the greeting, mounting each piece onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. Attach both panels to the card front to finish.
