Cinema Spinning Card How-to

Get ready to take this interactive card for a spin!

1. Stamp the Cinema Collection UM movie projector image onto a 4.5x6.5" Black panel with White Pigment ink.

2. Cut a 4.5" circle from White Plain; punch a hole into the center.

3. Stamp quotes and sentiments around outside edge of the circle with coordinating inks. (I used Lagoon, Orchid and India Black.)

4. Punch a hole near the lens of the stamped movie projector to create a pivot point.

5. Use a ruler and craft knife to cut a 2.25" angled line extending from the projector lens.

6. Add a second 2.25" angled cut, as shown.

7. Use a craft knife to cut along the edge of the projector lens. This will create a triangular flap.

8. Insert a brad into the pierced hole.

9. Slide the White stamped circle into place, positioning the circle on top of the angled cuts, and push the mini brad prongs through the corresponding pierced hole. 

10. Flatten the brad spray on the back.

11. Place adhesive on the back of the Black panel. Do not apply adhesive to the White circle.

12. Nest the panel onto a matte and layer onto a folded 5x7" card base. 

Spin the circle to feature the stamped quotes. Fun, right?

I wish you a creative day!

  1. Oh, I love this. Did you add white spatter to the right side of the card? Fun and creative!

    1. The truth is that I got a little white pigment ink on the card front other then where it was supposed to be, so the white spatters hide that. I was going to mention that in the blog but thought it was getting too long. I used my big Faber-Castell White #101 Pitt Pen & a waterbrush for the splattering action. Thanks for asking.

  2. When it said "card spin" the first word into my head was Kay - so of course I completely read the post today and of course it is Kay who created it and wrote it. Awesome.

    1. You are so funny Annette, glad you liked it! Thought it was kind of a fun thing that popped into my head using the neat movie projector Cinema stamp, so I couldn't resist. A slider that moves vertically also would have been fun. So glad we have access to such great paper and stamps to try these ideas out hehee! Thanks again!

  3. What a fun card Kay! Thanks for sharing all the details.

  4. Wonderful spin on the theme, Kay! And you know in art there are no mistake, only opportunities for creativity!

  5. What a fun card - I am definitely going to make this one.
