Sequin Shaker


bloghop

MFTWSC173I was determined not to miss another MFT sketch challenge & when I saw the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop an idea was born!  I have a variety package of sequins I bought over 15 years ago & wanted to use up as many as I could so I can justify getting some of the beautiful ones from PPP!  My idea was to make an all white card, except for the sequins. I made a stencil from a MFT Framed Flourishes die & used my molding paste on heavy weight white cardstock that had been die cut with a Spellbinders rectangle. I sprayed it with Tattered Angels pearl mist. I laid the sequins on the card front & was about to attach the window piece when I realized I had forgotten the acetate!  Next problem was that my bag of recycled acetate pieces is no where to be found! Always happens when I straighten up my supplies--argh!  I did have a couple packages from my Big Shot plates that weren't in the sack & saved the day.  I like double layers of vellum, so cut the 2 smallest Fishtail Flags & made 3 felt Rolled Roses. Love this swirly sheer
ribbon & was glad to finally be able to use it on a card. This will probably go to a blogging friend 
along with a Random Acts of Kindness gift. Hope you're enjoying the weekend--wet & windy here, so maybe I can get some more cards made in between play time with puppy Fritz!

  36. Awesome x lovely shaker card, Greta! The white on white, with the colourful sequins is pure stunning! I *need* to buy more sequins (says she, who a week ago was trying to get rid of them as quickly as possible!), because I am hook, lined and sinkered with shakers! Who knew!! Yours, again, is fabulous!! Hugs~c
