The Spinner/Slider card is fun to make and fun to give and even more fun to receive. It takes a little planning, but just because of using the foam tape to adhere the pieces.

Step 1: CREATE THE SPINNER ELEMENT
Color the image
Attach two pennies with a popdot.
Attach the image to the penny with a glue dot.
Step 2: CREATE SPINNER TRACK AND BACKGROUND
A track approximately 3/8" wide has already been cut in black mat.
If stamping this main mat, do so before putting the foam tape on the back.
The Radiant Neon Ink Pad will leave a subtle background on black.
Step 3: STAMP BACKGROUND WORDS
Stamp the decorative 2 1/2" neon colored mat. I used the Hero Arts Ombre ink pad. Next using a blending tool, ink the edges with black.
Step 4: ASSEMBLE SLIDER AND ADD EMBELLISHMENTS
In order to insert the slider slip the valley between the pennies onto the bottom of the track and then work the top of the track in between.
Add the neon gems to the bottom left section.
Step 5: DRIPPY GOO ACCENT
The American Crafts Glitter paper adds just the right amount of glitz to this card. The greatest trick is to use the "Stick It" adhesive sheets from Ken Oliver Crafts. It is a very thin, very sticky adhesive that is easily die cut or punched.
Step 6: APPLY FOAM TAPE AND MATS
Apply the foam tape to the back of the slider mat. Be sure to leave enough space for the penny to roll freely. I didn't want a contrasting color in the opening so I backed it with another black mat.
Step 7: ASSEMBLE THE CARD
The base card is orange cardstock cut 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2".
The black mats are 4" x 5 1/4"
If you have trouble lining up the mats straight I like to use score tape on all four sides. On two opposite corners peel back just an inch or so of both strips of tape. This gives you lots of play to get it straight before tacking it down and peeling off the remainder of the adhesive backing. The image above shows the 1" strip of the backing on the bottom left corner.
Step 8: DECORATE THE INSIDE OF THE CARD
Stamp the white mat with the Neon Inks or the Ombre Ink with stamps to match the front.
Step 9: STAMP THE BACK, SIGN AND DATE YOUR WORK OF ART
