When Lawn Fawn released their Revel Wheel set I knew that I had to make Christmas cards with it. With some great Lawn Fawn papers and my Copics, here is what I designed.
I decided to make an A7 sized card because I wanted to have more background showing. I used the Snowy Owl paper from Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill collection as my bottom layer. I really like the turquoise color for an icy themed card. I chose the diagonal side as I think it really adds some “kick”.
Time to make the wheel! I used the Lawn Fawn YouTube video to put together the basic wheel unit. Check it out here. I used the Reveal Wheel die set and cut Neenah Royal Sundance Bright White cardstock for all the basic pieces. This is a great cardstock that has a nice linen finish for a bit of texture. I used the oval cut out from the Reveal Wheel Square Add-On to make the opening on the front as well as cutting the oval frame in the set from dark turquoise cardstock. Following the instruction in the video I attached the wheel unit to the back panel and used the front panel to mark the places for the sentiments on the wheel. I used the Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments for that. I then used partial sentiments from both the Merry Messages and Simply Winter Sentiments sets to stamp above and below the opening. My Tim Holtz stamp positioner is a great tool to do this, especially since I used parts of two different sentiments. I also used the Winter Sentiments set to stamp the greeting on the envelope. Once I properly placed the stamped wheel I used a double layer of 3M foam tape to attach the front white panel to the back white panel avoiding the areas near the wheel.
I then set to decorating the front. First, using the Stitched Hillside Borders I cut a panel for the bottom using Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock. I also cut the snowflake from the Reveal Wheel Snowflake Add-On and two smaller snowflakes from a Karen Burniston set to cut some snowflakes from the same sparkle cardstock. I pulled out my Toboggan Together set and stamped the deer with black Tsukineko Memento ink and the tree with Tsukineko Olympia Green VersaFine ink. I colored the deer with Copic markers and cut both pieces out with the matching dies. I used a white gel pen to add some details to the deer and a black glaze pen for his eye. I attached the tree directly to the card and attached the deer with some 3M foam tape. Then I put a red nose on Rudolph with a red jewel and yellow, blue, red and lavender jewels on the tree. I added the 3 snowflakes with liquid glue.
Before placing the wheel unit on the front I decided that I needed a bit of something between them. So I die cut a large Sue Wilson dotted oval from vellum and placed it behind the wheel unit. I attached the main wheel unit to the front of the card using a single layer of 3M foam tape to give it a bit of room for turning the wheel. Then I cut the little arrow from the Reveal Wheel die set and the same dark turquoise cardstock as the oval frame and attached that beside the wheel.
I love how you can change the sentiment on this card by just turning the wheel! There are so many uses for this die set for any time of the year. Here are the 4 different ones I used for this card.
Hope you enjoyed my Christmas card. I had a “wheely, wheely” good time making it! May all your Christmas crafting be wonderful.
