Foxy Skater Spinner Card in Action With Video Tutorial!

Hello friends!  Really feeling the cold air around here, so I’m still thinking in winter mode and have another interactive winter card to share with you again today!  (Please be sure to check out THIS POST to see another interactive winter card and video tutorial if you’ve missed my last posting!)

What’s a better way to embrace the cold than to create interactive cards in your nice warm crafty space, right?!  So sit back, have a warm sip and get creative with me today!

Vicki-DDS-Spinner Fox Card video

This cute little guy is so fun to watch him spin around doing his cool ice skating trick!  I’ve used the Foxy Skater image from Digi Doodle Studios for my card here along with the Winter Plaids N’ Patterns Digi Paper Pack and Snow Days Sentiments set as well!

I’ve used several dies from My Favorite Things for the front of the card!  I’ve cut out the plaid papers with the A2 Stiched Rectangle die and mounted it over an A2 sized side folding white card base.  The spinner “window” was cut out with a Circle die that was also used to cut the center for the Scallop Stitched Circle frame around the opening.  The sentiment was printed out and cut with the MFT Slanted Banners die (not finding link in store).  I’ve also used MFT dies for the snowflakes (also not shown in store), that was cut from some Brutus Monroe Fallen Snow Glitterstock.  I’ve added some silver Stickles to the centers of the snowflakes and dotted around the front of the card.

I’ve also used some snowflake papers for the inside area of the card from the Candy Land Paper Pack from MFT as well!

Check him out below as he spins around:

What’s different about this particular spinner card is how I’ve used a single digital image to create the front AND back of this Foxy Skater guy!

To see how I’ve put together this card for the spinner action, check it out in my video below or you can watch it on You Tube HERE:

I still have this card along with the other interactive card from my last post sitting here on my desk playing around with them! Not sure I can give them up quite yet as I’m having fun!! LOL!

Vicki-DDS-Spinner Fox Card video-close

Here’s a closer look at the cute “Foxy Skater” guy that twirls around on the card.  I was going for a bit of a textured look on his fur, so I also used a white gel pen to mix in some white fur on his cheeks, chest and tail areas. I’ve also used a gel pn for the cheeks and a metallic gel pen for his skate blades.   It was a little more time consuming to color in two fox images, but as you can see, it’s totally worth having both sides for this spinner action design! 🙂

To flip the image in the opposite direction, I used Word doc. on my computer, copied the orignal image so that it was the exact size, pasted him again and then used the “rotate” setting to flip him in the opposite direction.

Check out the video to see how I was able to fussy cut him down for my card design.

  1. What a cute WINTER card – and then to make it a spinner card. Very good tutorial as well. How to “flip” an image was easy reading BUT – my digi skills are about preschool level. I guess I have to just keep trying, what harm can I do right??? Winter is still here in Southern MO. Have a great weekend.

  2. I give this little skater a 9.7 for his spinning capabilities, Vicki! I am always so incredulous at your paper engineering abilities. So many of my blogging friends are skilled at them, and you definitely have a great knack for interactive specialty cards. The pretty plaid papers, and brilliant blue knitted accessories, make Foxy Skater the belle of the ice rink! Beautiful card. Thank you for showing how to make a spinner card that looks so pretty. Beautifully done! hugs, de

  12. What a lovely card. Great idea using a digistamp twice to make the front and back of a spinner card. Love it, as I also love Digidoodles digital stamps.
