Snowflake Spinner Card

Hello dear friends and followers.  A second post for me today (whoo hoo ) to share a card I made and taught for a workshop today.  We have a group that meets once a month and I always try to teach them a new technique.  Sometimes this means that I'm cruising different sites for ideas as I don't know that many myself.  I found a video on the Stampin Up Demonstrator website by Dawn Olchefske (DO Stampin with Dawn) on the spinner technique and decided to give it a go. I modified what I learned to a Christmas card using a spinning snowflake. Here's what I made (I'll show a few pictures so you can see how it moved across the card):

Lots of fun to make and even more to see in motion :o)  Not sure how well it would make it in the mail though, so this is one that I will hand deliver to avoid getting completely squished.

 My card is made using the following (all from Stampin Up):
Word Window punch
Frosty Flurry Stamp set and coordinating Sizzlit dies - snowflake is stamped and cut out twice and glued together so that it has more substance to it.
Snowburst texture embossing folder (retired)
Island Indigo and Pool Party inks
Whisper white, Pool party, Island Indigo - cardstock
dimensionals, glue dots and two pennies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year Round - November challenge - Winter Wonderland
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #168 - Snowflakes
Divas by Design - Something Snowy
