Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be creating a super fun twister card using the brand-new Ai Mini Christmas Twister (5815) Set. This stamp and die set include several holiday twisters. We have got this adorable Santa, a sweet little snowman, a stocking full of gifts and the “JOY” sentiment! It also includes the dies that are necessary to create the spinner mechanisms and die cut all of the images.

Let’s start off by coloring the front and back of the Santa’s face. We will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, and Flesh Colour. To color the Santa suit we will be using the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink in Lumberjack Plaid.

Next, we can die cut the front and back of the Santa using the dies that are included in the set. We can also use this same set to die cut a pretty metallic frame in gold.

To set the scene for the card we will be stenciling a beautiful background using the Lawn Fawn Winter Sprigs Background Layering Stencil. We will again use the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks for this process….and all of the colors will be listed below.

We can create the “Gate Fold” card base using some heavy weight 100lb Kraft cardstock. I’ll show you exactly how to do this in today’s video and I will also give you the measurements for the front panels and for the inside card panel.

Next, we can die cut the opening for the mini spinner. You may have to run this through the die cutting machine a few times since we are die cutting a few layers of heavy cardstock. Now we can glue the frame in place.

And… for the fun part…. let’s pop our little Santa into the spinner mechanism and watch it spin!

Let’s also add a fun belt buckle to the front of the card using the Ai Mini Journal Template (5718). Once this has been die cut we can add a bit of texture to it using the Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades in Cracked Leather. Then go ahead and center this on the front of the card… remember to only put glue on the ends of the buckle! I thought this would serve a couple different purposes by giving us a fun closure for the card and it also mimics the belt buckle on Santa’s suit!

Using the Ai Mousey Christmas (5564) we can grab a cute sentiment that says, “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!” and stamp it using that same Lumberjack Plaid ink. We can also die cut this sentiment using a pretty die from the Ai Mini Journal Template (5718) Set.

I hope you had as much fun watching this video on how to create a mini spinner as I had making it!!!
