CCEE Stampers - Numbers!

Since the theme this week at CCEE Stampers is "Numbers" I decided to create this 8th birthday spinner card. I started with a piece of 5 x 10.5 card stock which I scored at 2.5, 5, 7.5, and 10. I then added designer paper to the two left panels before die cutting the oval.

I used my computer to generate the two eights. After cutting them out and gluing them together, I attached a gold cord to the back and suspended the eight in the center of the oval securing it with tape before sealing the card with a strip of Scor-Tape on the half inch panel at the far right.

The card folds flat and with the overhanging pieces fits in a 6 inch square envelope.
