Holiday blog blitz: Spinner santa
by Tina Wilstrup


Hello everyone! Have you started your Christmas card collection? The Christmas Blog Blitz is in full swing and I've got some fun inspiration for you, plus a chance to win the cute Whittle Santa face die. Read all the way to the end for info.


Since this santa die is symmetrical I imediately thought to make a spinner card. So i die cut the santa twice and colored it with Copics. The 4 die cut pieces are easy to assemble.

I used my adhesive runner on the back of one santa and made sure the silver thread was possitioned in the middle. I then put glue on the back of the other and attached them back to back.


The gorgeous patterned paper is from Memory Box and I die cut a circle that fits the santa. I then aligned with the card base to insure the holes would match.

With my adhesive runner I then made sure the silver thread and santa was secured in the middle of the hole on the card base.

Then I placed the patterned paper over the base and finished off with a frame cut from silver glitter cardstock. I also used another Memory Box paper for the inside of the card as a backer for the santa.

From the same dottet paper I cut the shadow of the Holiday Joy, and the word itself was cut from the same silver glitter cardstock.


Now all you have to do is turn the little santa, close the card and put it in the envolope and you'll be sure to bring a happy smile to the face of someone special.

Like I said, you could be the lucky winner of the Whittle Santa Face die. Follow these instructions.

Hi Tina, Love it, love it, love it !! The papers are so pretty and the sentiment is so lovely, but the Whittle Santa is 'darling' I absolutely adore him, and your idea to use him as a spinner is 'genius'.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
