I love things that shimmer and today’s card is chock full of it! I pulled out the June My Paper Pumpkin kit again last night and created a birthday card with the contents. This time the card showcases the kit and how fun it is to work with.
Instead of a banner, I made a party hat with a cello triangle. Can I just tell you how much I LOVE the sequins from this kit?? Actually, I really love all the contents of this kit and I haven’t tried them all! There are still gold letters that I haven’t even touched yet!
The whole thing was easy to put together. But let me give you a tip. I decided to emboss the sentiment in gold at the last minute so it would coordinate with the card better. Well, the problem was I had already put the cello hat on. When I heat embossed the heat from the heat gun started to melt the cello a bit at the top despite my efforts not to! So if you want to make this card, emboss first, then add the hat! The hat was quite simple to make. Just pour in a bunch of sequins then seal the triangle shut with the washi tape from the kit. Once that was done, I cut a piece of gold shimmer paper with fringe scissors and added it the the bottom with tear tape to give the hat sparkle. When attaching the hat to the card, I only used tear tape at the bottom where the glimmer paper can hide it and at the top over and under the bit of fringe. Even though that’s not much adhesive, the hat stays in place nicely.
I hope you will give this card a try, so much fun to make! I still have a few more ideas for the June kit, so be sure to come back and see what I’ve come up with.
