Fall Spinner / Easel Card

This card was so much fun to make.  I love the spinner.  When trying to display it I realized that a standard card would not stay standing.  I decided to make it as an easel card too.

Photos seldom do justice to the cards.  I wanted to add a video so you could see it in action,  Spinner cards have been around for ages, but this fall was the first time I tried my hand with making some.  I made several in September for a Halloween Make'n'Take.  Then I found a Lawn Fawn die that actually die cuts the channel for the spinner.  I can see many more of these cards in my future.

I don't have any of the monster dies so I had to improvise.  I used a stamp of Franky from Texana Designs.  With photoshop I was able to extract the elements.  I used Scan'n'Cut Canvas to create the various pieces.  I fired up the Scan'n'Cut and the magic began.  I thinking it turned out pretty darn good.
