Glitter and Sequins . . . Oh My

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and had lots of family fun. We had some great weather here in Houston, TX which was perfect for the Easter Egg hunts and hanging outside. I also had a little bit of a chance to play in the craft room and made this fun sparkly card using the Pinkfresh Folklore Die .


I started out by die cutting this intricate die on glitter paper. I ran it through my Big Shot a couple of times to make sure that all the intricate pieces were cut. I then played around with the paper to see if I wanted to remove only some of the portions of the die,but in the end I removed most of them so that more sequins would show.


I must admit, I’m not the greatest at making shakers. I thought that the best plan for this intricate die would be to use some spray adhesive on the back of the paper and then I took a scrap piece of plastic (recycling packaging from a stamp purchase lol). It ended up being quicker and I like the results, so I may use it more in the future.


Once it was dry, I flipped it over and added foam tape to the edges of the plastic and then added some sequins and confetti that I’ve had in my stash from Target. I carefully added by cardbase to ensure that all the sequins stayed inside and my cardbase was centered.


I then added stripes of blue cardstock around the edges to hide the edge of the foam tape and added this perfect sentiment from the Brilliant Pinkfresh set and a very shiny card.


I’m entering my card in two challenges this month. The first one is the April 2019 Pinkfresh Challenge.


And in the Time Out Challenge #133

  1. This totally caught my eye in the Gallery, its amazing!! I haven’t made a shaker card for ages and this has inspired me to get my beads out and create.
