Sequin Love

Ssshhh, but don't tell anyone but as I get that little bit older I'm not so interested in trends anymore.  I know what I like, what colours and styles I like and base a lot of my fashion, craft, home choices on that.  So you can imagine my surprise to find sequins were making a comeback!  I love sequins always have (although hate sewing with them!!).  And now I can share my first card of this new trend using sequins.  Sequins that I've had in my sewing box for who knows how long!!


I found a gorgeous card on Pinterest from KittieKraft using the cutest little Umbrella die.  So cute that I had to find one myself and buy it.  Oh the fun of online shopping.  I then pinned that card and knew I would make my version as soon as I could!

 I used scraps of cardstock that I have saved for a rainy day (sorry about that pun) and so used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party. I used my Scoring Tool to make the background lines of the card background, flipped it over and adhered my little umbrella's using Dimensional's to pop up the umbrella top and glued the handles down. 

I stamped a birthday sentiment and glued some sequins down.  I learned (again) how tricky it can be working with sequins when you have gluey fingers.  They stick to everything!  But the card did come together very quickly which was just the perfect project for when I needed a card in a hurry!!

To make this project I used the following supplies:
Stamps: So Happy For You
Inks: Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Pool Party CS
Accessories: Sequins, Scoring Tool, Big Shot & Umbrella die & Dimensionals

And I just had to share this photo of my card using tricky photo-editing.  Well not tricky really, as I just click on buttons without knowing what I'm doing!!!
