Snow is fallling...

Hey there.
Today I'm sharing a sequin card with you. It might look simple, but it nearly ended up in the bin several times.
Sequins are contrary things. When you want them to stick, they slip around all over the place,
and when you want to remove them, they cling on for dear life!!


I started by die cutting my snowflakes and then stuck sequins to my base card, where they would show through.
I did this for all 3 snowflakes, but it just looked too OTT.
Luckily I didn't stick down my die cut card, I just held it over the top.
I removed the sequins from under the edge cut snowflake and that left a mess of torn card showing through, so I die cut another snowflake and popped it into the space and voila...  my first Christmas card of the year,
and it turned out pretty good in the end.

What a clever idea, can I borrow it?
The snowflake off the edge was a lucky error as it really works. :)
