Seeing Stars at Naughty or Nice!

So I saw Kate's post at Make the Day Special using die cuts and sequins, and thought ooooooh that looks awesome! I don't think mine turned out as well - but then I had four teenage boys playing some sort of zombie-killing game in the background while I was making mine :)

I thought the stars from Lil Inkers would make the perfect frame for my bright cheery sequins, and thus was born my card for Naughty or Nice this month:


Supplies: Lil Inkers star dies; sentiment unknown; Peacock Feathers distress ink; so.many.sequins.


After lightly marking the area to be sequined with a pencil, I applied them somewhat randomly to the double-sided tape. Dropped a bunch on the dog. Cursed the idea a few times. Applied the orange panel with foam tape more or less where I'd intended to. Swore I'd never do it again....until I showed a few people who loved it. MAYBE I'll do it again :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Of course people loved it! Although I can see where it would be a tedious process. Fun for the dog, maybe? ;) Perfect card for our Naughty or Nice challenge, too!

I'm always amazed when I see things like this that must have taken the patience of a saint. The end result is really stunning though, so I guess it was worth it (as long as you were the one doing it) ;)
