Wedding Sequins

Sequins are of course one of the hottest paper crafting  trends at the moment - I am usually not the first on a trend, but this one is definitely growing on me! This time of year I tend to make a LOT of wedding cards, and I made these two similar cards - one in silver, one in gold.


Supplies for both cards: Martha Stewart wedding cake stickers; sequins; Liquid Pearls; lacy circle/oval Nesties; Bazzill cardstock; gold mirror paper



I got a little carried away with the sequins on the gold card - they just kept jumping on :)

There's a sequin challenge over at Catered Crop until August 17. 

Back to the crafty salt mines - I've been spending so much time playing that &*%^# Candy Crush that I'm neglecting my stamps. You know it's bad when your kids walk by & say "You're STILL on Level 65? How long are you going to be there?" Forever, apparently. *sobs*

xoxo,
Jessi

Two gorgeous wedding cards! I love all the sequins and guess I'd better get busy and purchase some before the fad wears out.
