Hello! It’s no secret that I love making shaker cards. But I also love to use sequins for other things. I really enjoy combining different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground to coordinate with my cards perfectly. A lot of times, I just start working on my card, and then go through all of my Sparkle Blends to choose what works best.
For this card, I used Majestic and Fairy Dust Sparkle Blends, but let’s take a step back and see how I got to the point of choosing those sequins. I started off by using the Wreath Builder Templates and Autumn Wreath Builder stamps from Gina K Designs. I stamped my chosen images with VersaMagic inks from Imagine on Kraft paper. When I build my wreaths, I like to work with my focal image first, in this case the Grapefruit colored flower, and then build everything else around that.
Then I went on to choose my sequins. I loved the pink and white sequins from the Majestic Sparkle Blend, and then I needed something for the Eggplant colored flowers. I knew I wanted something small, with an opalescent quality, so the Fairy Dust Sparkle Blend was definitely going to do the job. I found tiny flowers and simple snowflakes, and it turned out that they were perfect. I adhered them all with On Point Glue from Imagine. I found some coordinating patterned paper and a great sentiment from Altenew’s Crafty Friends stamp set. I felt as though my card needed one more element, so I splattered on some Rich Cocoa Fireworks Spray.
Adding some sequins to flowers is a quick way to punch up your cards, add dimension, and plenty of shine. Be sure to visit White Rose Crafts LLC to check out all of the available Sparkle Blends.
