This is the last of my week-long attempt to use my order from Paper Smooches before they all got tucked away (although I didn't use the dies that go with this set - do you think I can still put it away?)!! I thought an icy drink would be a great way to use sequins!
I've been struggling with an idea for a card for a young lady who is heading off to college and is quite nervous about it. As I was looking at this stamp set - the light bulb came on. I do want her to "have a ball" and settle in happily - at least until she has to buckle down and study!! (Nothing like waiting until the last minute as her going away party is tonight!) I've also been struggling with a going-away gift and when an idea finally came to me, I felt really stupid. She has been coming to our church cardmaking group since she was just a little girl. What could possibly have more meaning to her than a stack of greeting cards for her own use??? It's not like I don't have a substantial stash of cards!!
I hope you all pull out your sequins. If you don't have any - there are very nice sequins at the hobby stores. I found lots of variety packs on Etsy. Card stores with beautiful sequins include Ellen Hutson, Avery Elle and Neat and Tangled. The sequins on this card are Clearly Beloved sequins from Simon Says Stamps. I'm sure there are lots more but these are some of my faves!
