Fidget Spinner Birthday Card for my Grandson


My grandson, like all kids nowadays, loves his fidget spinner, so I created a birthday card with one that moves and spins especially for him. I printed the image off the internet on cardstock and cut it out. I die cut a channel with a die from Lawn Fawn called Slide on Over and put the spinner on a penny with several small pop dots. The fidget spinner spins and moves along the track. I printed up the sentiment and cut it out with a circle die. Here is another view of the spinner and also of the surprise on the inside:




I love interactive cards and so do kids, so I die cut a pop up happy birthday greeting from Concord & 9th called Party Pop Ups and personalized it with an alphabet die set from Tonic Studios. Here is the birthday boy and I frosting his favorite cake- note he is 11 and as tall as me now!



I am still working very hard on a major creative project that means I will not be blogging as much as usual until I get done. But it won't be long now until I will reveal my new adventure here on my blog and on my other social media accounts. In the meantime, thanks for helping me #spread the joy of creativity!

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday and Scrapy Land.

This is a very cool card! I bet it went down very well. I bet the cake did too! Lovely photo. Looking forward to hearing about your new venture! xxx

What a great card. My grandson wanted a fidget spinner but his Mom said "no" because so many kids have been injured with them. And, they are not allowed in school which is where a lot of kids would want to take theirs. But one like this would not be so harmful.
