Sesame Street Spinners

Lin Mei's 2nd challenge for the INKling cyberstamp was to make a spinner card. They are really fun - when you tilt the card to the side the image spins all the way across the card - if you click here you can see the tutorial I followed & if you are in Australia you can substitute the penny for 5 cents.
I immediately thought of a spinning flower or butterfly, but then thought that others probably had the same thought (are you still with me?), so wanted to do something different. I then remembered seeing some cute little Sesame Street punchies around the blogosphere lately & decided Elmo would be great at spinning!

This is so different to the cards I have been making lately, but was heaps of fun & the kids loved it, so I decided to make Elmo some friends.

I think Oscar the Grouch is my favourite, but have just thought (oh no not again!!) that I need the Bugs & Kisses stamp set to make is little friend Slimey!

I was just wondering how you get the edges on the black CS..? Do you purchase it like that, or is there a punch that can do that? It really does look fab!
