Moving right along! Here is idea #9 for the Stampin’ Up ornaments bundle. I call this a Suspension card or it could be called a Suspension Spinner b/c if you wind it up and let it go, it spins:
I should really be doing full videos for some of these, like this one which is a little more complicated. However with doing 2 videos a week for Stamping School and life, you may be waiting too long SO let’s do this old school with pictures!
First thing I did is mount 2″ x 4-1/4″ pieces of Rich Razzleberry and Island Indigo on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ white card stock layer. I just love those 2 color together!
Cut a circle that is slightly bigger than what you will be suspending. This is Circle framelit #7 from the Stampin’ Up Circles collection.
If you are going to emboss, now is the time! I also added a 1/4″ strip of silver foil on the seam. I hate raw seams:)
I used Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base. (4-1/4″ x 11″, folded in half). Lay your panel on top of card where it will eventually be glued down. Use a pencil to mark your circle opening.
Open your card and place the framelit (same size, #7, as the panel) over your pencil marks and cut the circle.
Stamp and cut 2 of the same ornaments and the caps.
I used the silver thread from the holiday catalog. It’s super fine but strong. Adhere the thread between the 2 ornaments. Leave at least 10 inches of the thread hanging out from the top and bottom.
On your white card base, add a little bit of snail (tape) adhesive. Place your thread top and bottom and center your ornament in the window. Pull the thread so it’s taut and add a piece of tear tape or really strong double sided tape over the thread. Give it a tug again before adhering top panel.
