One more sequin card for the March Papertrey Blog Hop.
This one uses the Framed Out #12 Die to highlight several strings of ombre sequins.
To suspend the sequins, I built a shadow box frame with die cut layers. Ardyth Percy-Robb's creatively layered snowflake was still in my head, so thought as long as I was building layers, I might as well make them ombre too. The thick frame allows the sequins to wiggle around freely if you touch them.
For a split-second I considered using invisible fishing wire to sew the sequins with. And then I voted in favor of my sanity. That stuff is so darn slippery. Double stitches of plain white thread seemed to be enough to hold the sequins. I used washi tape during the process to keep the strings in place on the frame.
And mounted it all on some glitter paper, just in case there wasn't enough bling! I'm linking this up to the Moxie Fab ombre challenge as well. And, I'll take Ardyth's advice and head over to LIM ... beads on an abacus? Sure!
Thanks for looking!
