#givemeallthesequins | A Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

This month's Paper Pumpkin was perfection.
It is a kit to make Christmas shaker cards.
The sequins make my heart leap.

I am excited to see everyone's projects in this month's Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop. I've created a card and a matching ornament... if I were a betting woman I'd bet one of these crafters may also have the same project... It seemed so obvious to me to do an ornament by looking at the instructions.
... And then I would call us all geniuses...

To create this ornament, you need two Stampin' Up! Layering Circle Framelits at 3" and 2.75". You'll need to cut the largest circle for both the bottom of the card (after you stamp the sentiment) and to created the outside edge of the rim.

You can, of course, cut the rim using both of the framelits at the same time.


Finally, I created a simple card to finish these projects off. Truth be told this is my type of card... simplicity with a side of sequins. But if you can look really close, the circle has embossed stitched perforations.  Its a small perfect detail that can bring your projects from blah to wow.  Love them!

Rachel Tessman is next up on this hop and she is known for creating amazing variations of these kits.  I can't wait to see what she comes up with! Thanks so much for dropping by!
