Using Sequins for Cardz 4 Galz #218

Welcome back to the Cardz 4 Galz challenge #218! Dawn, our host for this bi-weekly challenge period chose using sequins for the theme. When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to see how the rest of the design team members used sequins in their projects. We always love it when you play along with our themes, so please remember to upload your project to our gallery.

Here’s my Fresh as a Daisy DSP card:


  • The Moody Mauve base measures 11 by 4-1/4 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent card.
  • Next, I trimmed a piece of Bubble Bath cardstock to 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches and outlined it with a Bubble Bath Stamping Write Marker.
  • The Fresh as a Daisy DSP (designer series paper) measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches. I outlined it using the Moody Mauve Stamping Write Marker.
  • Then I trimmed a piece of the same DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • I punched a 1-inch circle from Bubble Bath 6 x 6 inch DSP for the envelope seal and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • The white cardstock for the inside of the card measures 5-1/4 by 4 inches.


  • Before adhering the Bubble Bath cardstock to the card base, I cropped the solid daisy pieces using the Cheerful Daisy dies. Since this piece of cardstock will mostly be covered by the DSP, no one will see the ugly in the cardstock.
  • I used my Bubble Bath Stamping Write Marker to outline each of the daisy solid backgrounds to make them stand out from the DSP.
  • Next, I cropped the white cardstock daisies from a 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inch piece of cardstock.
  • I was also able to crop the sentiment block after I stamped it in Moody Mauve. The sentiment comes from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set and I used the second smallest Countryside Corners die to crop it.
  • I adhered the Bubble Bath cardstock to the base using multipurpose liquid glue.
  • Next, I wrapped a piece of Bubble Bath ribbon around the DSP and tied it in a square knot.
  • Using multipurpose liquid glue, I adhered the DSP to the cardstock.
  • Again using liquid glue, I adhered the Bubble Bath solid daisy backings to the white cardstock daisies.
  • I added dimensionals to the back of the daisies and the leaves. I needed to cut some mini-dimensionals in half for the leaves.
  • After adhering the daisies to the DSP, I needed to use a double layer of dimensionals under the sentiment.
  • Finally, I added sequins to the sentiment, the daisy centers, and randomly on daisy centers on the DSP.
  • You Made My Day can easily be an all-occasion sentiment. Therefore, I haven’t stamped anything on the inside of the card yet. I will do that when I decide how I am going to use this card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
