Hi there, it is Design team member Verity from Pretty Little Button. I have a lovely clean and simple card to show you today where I used a fabulous sequin mix sold by Chunk Monkey Crafts.- Icicle It has a variety of shapes and sizes which add a touch of elegance to any card. I love the whites and silvers of this mix, so make sure you head over to her Etsy shop and pick a bag up!
Icicle Sequin Mix Card overview:
To start, ink blend with a soft bristle brush in a colour of your choosing in one corner of the card – I used Peacock feathers distress oxide for this card. Add a few splatters of water and soak up with a paper towel for added texture.
Layer and foam mount several die-cut circle frames and position over this area. Die cut a sentiment several times out of white card and layer for dimension – mount this onto the card. Stamp a secondary sentiment and position underneath.
Applying the sequins:
Once the whole panel is matted onto a card base, it is time to embellish with sequins. I choose to position my sequins in three clusters on the card. Two around the sentiment and one cluster up in the top left corner. It is more aesthetically pleasing if you vary the size of the sequins in a cluster and their position. This sequin mix is perfect for this as it contains sequins of several different sizes. Adhere these down with glue and allow to dry to ensure the sequins stay put.
Finishing the card off:
I finished this card off with a sentiment from the ‘Narky Sentiments’ stamp set – ‘Shop handmade’. These are a fabulous set to help finish your cards and envelopes off!
