Interactive View card tutorial

I was looking for something for a child's birthday card, something ...
interactive and fun. I came across this little idea and thought I'd share it with you. I made two in similar designs.

You will need:
Stampsets: short and sweet, linen background.
Scallop punch, Large oval punch, mat pack, brad, square punch, slit punch (for scalloped edging), distressing tool and white grosgrain ribbon.
Elegant eggplant ink and rich regal markers, or you can use stamping spots.
Cardstock: Lavender lace, whisper white, elegant eggplant and lovely lilac, amethyst patterned paper.

Step 1.
To make your turning disc, Punch out a white scallop circle.
Find its centre and pierce a hole, I have used the mat pack but, you can make a template by folding a scallop into quarters (where the folds meet is
the centre).

Step 2. Next punch a 1.3cm circle out of the piece of lovely lilac Cardstock - see the photo to estimate the position of your view finder.

Attach your scallop circle behind the circle you have made with a small brad keep it loose so that it spins.
Step 3.
To stamp the images inside the hole either use very small stamps such as the "short and sweet" images or use a piece of scrap paper to mask the hole. Turn the wheel around a quarter turn and stamp a second, third, fourth image into the hole. You can colour the images with your markers.

Step 4. Turn your wheel and cardstock over and punch an oval to stamp your greeting .

Step 5.
I have roughened up the edges of the lovely lilac layer with the stampin' up distressing tool.
Step 6. Add a strip of eggplant that you have scalloped. Then attach the whole piece to your lavender cardfront with dimensionals. I have used atleast 6 to help keep the wheel clear and spinning freely.

Step 7. To make the gift box I punched a square of almost amethyst patterned paper and a small rectangle for the lid. Wrapped them both with white grosgrain ribbon and tied a bow.
