"Wheelie" Great Birthday Card

A fun spinner card to wish some a "wheelie" great birthday !

Tire and wheel created with paper punches:
Scallop circle with the scallops trimmed off using scissors to create the tire.
Circle punch of silver card stock for wheel center.
Rubber stamped greeting heat embossed with white embossing powder (Think Happy Thoughts, retired from Stampin' Up!) to simulate raised white letters on some brands of tires.

Create two of these then adhere them back to back with
fishing line between them to mount it in the opening. Attach the ends of the fishing line between the card front and diamond plated card stock strip.

Circle Nestabilities die to cut opening in card stock strip and card front.

Darice Embossing Essentials Diamond Plate on silver metallic card stock.

Thin strips of red card stock

Naturals ivory card stock

Highways and Byways (retired) stamp set, Stampin' Up!

Basic Gray ink

TIPS: Stamp the circular greeting for the tire before punching out. Hold the paper punch upside down so you can see the greeting, centering it before punching out. Thin metal style dies work well for this, too.

Cut out the circles for the card front and card stock strip at the same time if your cutting tool can accommodate both layers. Use a little bit of double stick tape between the two layers in the area that will be cut out.

Dry emboss the card stock strip after cutting out the circle.

Thanks for looking =) 


  1. Love the spinner card. I am thinking I need to try this because kids will love playing with this thing. :)

  2. Nice masculine card - I don't have the patience to make a spinner card but I appreciate how you took the time to write out the tutorial - always learning tips and tricks from others. TFS

  3. Great masculine card Heather. Love how your paper, EF, and tire die cut carries the motor theme. I'm terrible at spinner cards, they always end up messy. Maybe your tips and tricks will help me. THanks for playing!
