Have you ever fallen in love with a card and wanted to CASE it, but didn’t have the right papers or other items? That’s exactly what happened to me this week. I knew right away when I saw this card (pictured below) I didn’t have the background, gold or silver papers. Nor did I have black sequins.
However, I knew I could recreate the papers no problem, so I went to town and winged it! I’m pretty happy with the results. I’m new to filming card videos, so by the time I got to the end of the card creation, recoding with live voice, I totally forgot to do my sequins. But, have no fear! I will tell you how to do them. Grab the sequins of your choice, any color of Staz On (Ink should be darker than your sequins), a Take Your Pick tool, and some tweezers. If your pad is pretty juicy you should be able to hold the sequin with some tweezers, then press it into the Staz On pad with your Take Your Pick Tool. Set the sequins aside and let them dry completely. Then voila! You have perfectly colored sequins!

Anyhow, back to the card, in the video below I take you ‘step by step’ through the process of recreating the background paper and how I made the gold and silver gears. You won’t believe how easy it was! Let me know if this inspired you to make your own background. Or better yet, if you just love being able to make your own gold and silver embellishments now let me know! I love hearing from you.
