I needed to send a thank you card to my nephew, so I pulled out the Tiny Ninja stamp set. Once I had the ninjas stamped and cut out I could resist making a spinner card.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by stamping and water coloring my ninja images. I used Distress Inks as water color. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut the ninjas out. Then, I decided to make a spinner card, so I had more stamping and coloring to do. One of the ninjas is a mirror image of another stamp so that one was easy. For the other ninja, I found a mirror stamping tutorial online and followed it.
I die cut an A2 sized panel for my card front. I die two small stitched circles from the panel. I stamped the sentiment next to the circles in black ink. I used the same stamp to fill in the background but with a light gray ink. I added some splatters of the Distress Inks I used to water color the ninjas with.
Once the panel was dry, I lined up the panel with a green card base and die cut the circles again. Using a strong glue, a sandwich some thread between the ninjas. Once that was dry, I assembled the card. I adhered the ends of the thread between the card base and the stamped panel.
