Happy Tuesday! Before we get started with Holiday Cards for this year, I wanted to share a quick birthday sequins shaker card with you all – this is a very easy, fast way to create a sequins card. Top Dog Dies is releasing some awesome dies today that are worth checking out. One of my favorite is the one I used on this card, the Scallop Square Frame Die. This die makes creating windows for the card so easy!
The Scallop Square Frame Die has 2 parts – the big mat frame with a window cutout and a smaller piece that cuts out the window itself. For today’s card, I decided to use the bigger piece from the die set to create a window for the sequins. Instead of doing a double work of cutting out a card layer first and then creating a window for the sequins, you can use this die to get both of them at once. I love how easy and fast it is to create the front layer piece!
For the front layer, I used Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine paper pack and added a bit of pink baker’s twine. For the inside of the window area, I used Avery Elle’s Cake & Candles Stamp Set. I kept the window area pretty simple since the sequins I used are super colorful. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and they are mixed with punch of different colors. Yummy!
I hope you take a look at the great selection of new dies from Top Dog Dies today- I highly recommend grabbing this Scallop Square Frame Die! Give it a try and you will see how easy it is to create sequins cards we all love so much.
Please check back this Thursday, as I will be starting a “highly requested” 2014 Holiday Card Series! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
