Woohoo! Thanks for posting pics of these wheel cards, Jocelyn! I'm going to copy the directions you emailed me into this post so others can see, too. I think a tutorial on these would be great!
You take a piece of neutral cardstock and use that for your card base (standard card size). Then you take a second piece and cut it into a circle measuring 4" or so across. Find the middle of the circle and put a small hole in it (big enough to fit a brad back through). Depending on the size of the image you want to stamp, divide the circle into even pieces, like a pie, and stamp the image onto each slice. When I used the Butterfly from A Greeting for All Reasons, I used 4 of them - quartered the circle - and coloured each one differently. Once this is done, line the circle up on a piece of cardstock cut to cover the front of the card (so half a card!) so that the edge touches the edge. Through the hole you have already punched in the circle, mark the spot on the BACK portion of the cardfront piece. Take a pair of scissors or a circle cutter and cut a small half circle less than half in the edge of the card front and the card base (same spot!) so that once it is all put together you can turn the wheel using this opening. Determine where on the card front your image is going to appear and cut that space out either in a circle or square. To make this card I use my CM circle cutters - the small circle with the red blade on the outside is a 4" circle and the same one with the red blade on the inside is usually the one I use to cut the window. ANYWAY, once you have all your cirlces/openings cut, take a brad and put it through the card front and then through the stamped circle and open up the back so the 2 become attached. Using adhesive in the corners and along the one side, adhere the card front to the card base. (the window should NOT be centered on the card front. You will have to put something down the left side of the card to make it look centered - I use crimped paper in a coordinating colour). You are done :)
