Hi all! I’m back with another card using Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit. This kit = truly awesome. I have so many ideas for using it and the minute I start flipping though patterned papers from the kit I feel incredibly inspired. Talk about awesome products!
I was planning to share this card during the blog hop earlier this week, but Wanda and I ended up making almost identical cards, lol! So I made a different one to share during the hop and sharing this one and also a video today.
I felt inspired by the pre-cut journaling card and figured it would work beautifully as a little shaker. I didn’t have a whole lot of sequins on hand at the time when I was making this card (we had to re-locate rather urgently a few weeks ago so I’m missing a lot of my usual supplies) so I had to use the only thing I had which were sequins from Gossamer Blue September kit. I wish I’d had some pink and gold to add to that shaker, but I only had white and black so I went with that.
I also die cut the Hello word out of black cardstock and doubled or actually tripled it to make it a bit more dimensional and sturdy. I used Hero Arts White Embossing powder for the You’re Pretty Fantastic sentiment and embossed that onto a strip of black cardstock.
I foam mounted my little shaker panel onto a sheet of patterned paper with gorgeous butterflies, added a strip of black cardstock to the side to balance the black Hello and adhered this onto an A2 card base created out of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock.
