Happy Wednesday to all! Today I'm up on the Doodlebug blog with a tutorial with my take on how to use those yummy Doodlebug sequins to add lots of flair to any of your projects! I create this trio of cards where the sequins are in the spotlight!
I'll get started sharing with you on how I created these fun cards! First thing is to chose a pattern paper for the front of your card. I used 6 x 6 paper pads since the patterns are smaller and better suited for card making. I used my Silhouette to cut out the die cut and then cut the pattern paper down to fit the base of my card.
Next step is to trace the shape onto my card base.
Then, start filling the shape in by adhering the sequins. Be sure to alternate between all of the different sequins. To adhere them down, I used my Zig glue pen. After all of the sequins had dried, I used pop dots on the back of the (already decorated) pattern paper and adhered it to the front of card base.
Here is a close up of my butterfly card where I added a Happy Birthday day tag from the Sugar Shoppe collection. Pattern paper is from the Fruit Stand collection and the border strip is from the Fancy Frills (bubblegum) sticker sheet. Sequin color is Bubblegum.
This card would be perfect for the birthday boy. The pattern paper, border strip, and tag are all from the Hip Hip Hooray collection. Sequin color is Limeade.
This card is a "hello sunshine" card using pattern paper and border strip from the Take Note collection, and sentiment sticker from the Fruit Stand collection. Sequin color is Bumblebee.
Hope you'll give these wonderful sequins a go on your next scrappy project!
