Streamers and sequins !

Hi there!

How long do keep your scraps ? A year, or two. Maybe three ?

I think I have a new record here for keeping scraps and I couldn't be gladder that I held on to the negative cut of THIS card I made five !!! years ago.

I used it as a stencil on today's card, just cropped it to a circle, added a sentiment and some sequins, and voila ! A card in minutes !

 I used :

  • Stencil as described above
  • Distress oxide inks
  • Versafine black ink
  • Sentiment from Simon says stamp BIG-BIRTHDAY-WISHES
  • Sequins
  • Misti

Challenges :

AAA cards ~ made in minutes (twist of using a stencil)

Seize the birthday ~ No topping this time


Thanks for looking !

Your card is super CAS yet so pretty and cheerful, Hannelie! I started cardmaking five years ago... and I think I have still some paper scraps from that time :) ! I hope I could use them so effectively like you did here! Stay safe and healthy!

Soft, fun, colourful, CAS! Simply brilliant!

Your softly colored streamers definitely speak to a birthday celebration. This is such a great card. I'm just surprised you could find your die-cut negative. I don't think I could have found something similar in my stash after 5 years.

Wow Hannelie and I thought I was a hoarder, five years has to be some kind of record! So glad you did keep it though as it's one spectacular card. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Keep safe, stay home and craft instead!

Oh, my word, I can't believe how pretty this is! Good thing you saved that piece because it just got better! I do love the other card, too, but this one, sigh. Those sweet colors!
