View- master card

Remember the View-Master? Ours at home was from around the 1950's and made from bakelite. The View-Master came into homes during 1939 as entertainment for children and adults alike.
View-Master was an improvement over the stereoscope, popular in the 19th century, as it had seven views on the reel versus the one view stereo graph card. The View-Master images were also in colour, thanks to Kodak's then new film, Kodachrome.
That is a little background information on the View-master, now onto the details of today's card.
I spotted a View-master card on Patti's blog, and tried to follow her tutorial but failed - so I ended up creating a look-alike, but in my own way. You can see on the left hand side of the card a "dial" which when turned displays various images I have stamped on the wheel on the inside of the card front. Hence the name, View-master card.
VERY fun to make, if you don't mind a little challenge.
I hope you like it!
Stay tuned and have a great day!
