House of Cards May Challenge: Sequins Surprise

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the House of Cards May Challenge! This month, we have a fun challenge inspiration for you, Sequins Surprise! You can get all the details and link up your Sequins Surprise card over at House of cards right here:

Use sequins and/or the color palette

I love these colorful sequins, and thought they would make a great shaker tag!

To create this tag, I tried something new. I stamped the pretty flower from Altenew’s Beautiful Day clear stamp set on a round piece of vellum paper, then gently heat embossed a light layer of sparkling embossing powder. You can see the sparkle a little bit in these two photos, but it looks amazing when you hold it in your hand!

The front of this tag really picks up the sun shine coming through the trees outside my craft room window. That’s because the front of the tag is not vellum, it’s regular shaker card acetate. Acetate on the front, vellum on the back, and the stamped flower and sequins, along with circle of foam, create a pretty shaker tag sandwich. This is what it looks like from the back.

Since the stamped flower is on the inside of the shaker, it’s protected from smudging and smearing. It looks so pretty hanging in a window too!

Take a look at what the design team has created for you this month!
