Pretty Pink Posh: Hello, Friend (Suspended Spinner Card)

Hi there! I'm back with another fun project I made using Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies. There's this super cute bear from the Halloween Friends stamp set that is dressed as a bee. I thought it would be fun to make him the star of my card and have him spin around. Let's take a look!

Making this card wasn't difficult at all, but it did require some extra steps. To begin, I trimmed a white folded note card to 5.25" x 4". Then, I took another white card stock and die-cut it using the rectangle Stitched Notes die. This gave it a nice stitched detailing to the front panel. Next, I added some colors to the front as well as the inside of the card using dye inks with a blending tool.
After, I took the the front panel and the card base (I made sure the card was open), lined up the papers and the smaller Scallop Circle, and ran it through the die cut machine to create the circle opening.
You can choose to leave the circle as is, but I decided to put the scallop frame back onto the card. I turned the panel over, placed the frame and taped all around the sides (see picture below). Then, I added double sided adhesive around the card base.
 Next, I took the two bears that I previously colored with Copic markers for the The Daily Marker 30 Challenge and wedged a invisible string down the middle (making sure to add strong adhesive) and adhered the bears together. What's great about this image is that it didn't require any mirror stamping. Next, I centered the bear in the middle of the circle of the card base, and adhered the strings to the top and the bottom (making sure the string was taut) and added the front panel on top. To finish the card, I added the sentiment from Friends Forever, and the cloud from Rainy Days Set

Here's the picture of the bears I colored for the Marker Challenge:
