Your sublime stamp set

SNAIL

Markers

Stazon ink

2″ circle punch

Trimmer

Instructions:

1. Scare base piece of card stock in half at 4 1/4″ and fold in half. Glue the coordinating piece of card stock onto the whisper white piece and then punch the penny rail with the word window punch. (Punch once on the middle and then slide over and punch on both sides, making sure your punch is all the way in). 

2. Stamp the sentiment under the penny rail and then take that whole piece and run it through your big shot with your choice of embossing folders. 

3. Stamp, color, and cut our your choice of stamps from your sublime. Punch out a two inch circle and add the frog or other cut out to the circle. Flip the circle over and add a dimensional, and a penny, and then another dimensional. Flip the front of your card over, so the dimensional is right in the penny rail. Add another penny and then roll the pennies back and forth so the piece will start to spin.

4. Add eight dimensionals to the back of the card, (I doubled mine up so it could spin better). Then adhere it to the base of the card. If you use dark card stock you can add a piece of 5 1/4″ x 4″ whisper white card stock to the inside. (If you wish you can add wiggly eyes to your image).
