Gopher Spinning card


Hello everyone!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas’ blog today with this spinner card I made with “Popped Up” mini stamp set.

I’ve been wanting to make a fun spinner card, and I thought this adorable gopher image is perfect for it!


Here is how I made this card:

  1. I stamped the gopher image on a Copic friendly paper, colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut the image.
  2. I prepped all the die cut layers using “Fancy Frames”and “Stitched in Circle” die sets.
  3. For the base layer, I used a sheet of patterned paper from “Sweet Things” 6×6 paper pad. I colored the large scallop circle frame pink with Copic marker and applied Clear Wink of Stella to add interest.
  4. For the middle circle frame, die cut grass with “Outdoor Landscape Dies,” colored with Distress inks, and glued it to on the bottom. I also stamped the sentiment on the top of this frame.
  5. I sandwiched 2 pennies and a foam circle, and glued the gopher on top for it to spin between the circle frames.
  6.  I first adhered the background layer with some foam tape, then I slipped the gopher spinner between the circle layers, before securely adhering the middle circle frame.
  7. I die cut a vellum banner using “Mix It Up Dies,” stamped the sentiment from “Say It Big” stamp set with Versamark, and heat embossed in silver. I attached it on the bottom of the card with “Matte Sprinkles”



I hope you enjoyed my card! Happy crafting!
