It is good to be back here and blogging - life has been a bit hectic these last few days - but enjoyable with Grandchildren to chase and cuddle, and their parents to share the time and tasks of Christmas with!
This card is needed for a January birthday, and I really sat down with no set plan in mind. I started with the blue base card, and then noticed the negative die cut on my desk - and this is the result.
I decided to use a sheet of purple reflective 'stuff' I have had in my stash from 'way back'... It has an adhesive backing, which was easy enough to get onto the base, but it gave me some problems in getting the die cut to attach to it.
I then looked at it and decided to use some sequins to add some interest, and because I had been given some from a friend recently. There were all sorts in the wee container, and I had fun mixing and matching them over the background, and trying to make them look truly random in the placement!
As there were some gold sequins, I decided to emboss the greeting with gold, and added three sequin under it for a wee bit of emphasis.
I loved working on this card and was very pleased with the outcome - and thanks to Linda of Lovely Linda's Craft Central for the inspiration to use the negative of a die cut.
