Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Card Blog Hop. Paulina has a store selling the most amazing colors of sequins and other embellishments. And not only are the products amazing, she is amazing.
To celebrate the success of her store and the growing popularity of sequins, she decided to host a blog-hop and invite everyone to join in.
So here is my card —
I started this card with the Green Apple card stock from Simon Says Stamp cut to 4 1/2 by 5 1/2 (a little bigger than a standard size card). For the shaker panel, I wanted to try something different (at least to me). I have never made a shaker card with different compartments so I wanted to try it. I have this die cut set from Momenta that I saw that the clearance area in Hobby Lobby and I loved it and immediately purchased it.
My first attempt was a minor fail. After I had placed where the flowers would go, I decided to make square compartments for each opening. I didnt realize that the sequins would barely stay in the center since the square was bigger that the flowers. My second attempt was the correct idea. I decided to use fun foam and I die cut the flowers where I wanted them and did a second layer.The sequins were contained only to the area of the flower.
The sequins I used are all from the Pretty Pink Posh shop. I used Lemon Drop, Tangerine and Pansy Purple. To each flower I also added mini clear sequins from Darice. I also scattered some same colored sequins to the front of the card which I adhered with Glossy Accents.For the sentiment, I used the Giving Thanks set from Simon Says Stamp. I used the “Giving Thanks” sentiment with VersaMark ink and added silver detail embossing powder from Recollections.
To finish the card, I felt the front panel was too white so added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen on the edges.
That’s it for this card. I will back on Wednesday for another Wednesday Card Day.
