gotta spin by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Today I am using one of the Ai Spinners...but my card doesn't spin!  I wanted to show you how fun these images are to also use them in a different way.  I've created a card with an acetate card front and added the front and back of the Chair Spinner

For some reason, this image always reminds me of a teacher...hence the paper I chose with the ruler markings!  Since it is Back To School time, I thought I'd make a teacher card.  Although...I really think she looks like she is celebrating the END of the year!  LOL!

I used a black Sharpie to outline the acetate front.  The cardstock base was cut to 5" x 5 1/2", then I scored the 5" side at 4 1/4".  This gives a narrow strip by the fold to attach the acetate to.  I then covered this cardstock edge and the left of the acetate with the die cut speech bubble border (inside & out).

The Chair Spinner dies make it SUPER EASY to perfectly line up the front & back images.

Happy stamping!



  1. Love the fun border and what an awesome idea with the acetate card! Totally fun!

  2. Brilliant idea you had with this card and the spinner that's not a spinner LOL. So cute!

  3. Love the border. A very cute card. Have this set but haven't had a chance to use it yet! Now, I'll try!

  4. LOVE the acetate front and the speech bubble blown up for your border!! Super cute papers and colors!! Fantastic card Diane!!

  5. Great idea, Diane. Fun use of the Spinner image. LOVE the color and paper choices.

  6. What a great idea for a school/teacher card! The polka dot 'word bubble' is such a good one!!!
