Sequin Balloons

Hello! Chari here today with another sequin card.   This time I used the balloons in the Just For You set as my inspiration.  I wanted to make another card with a sequin panel behind cut out images and I thought it would be fun to do the balloon and make each of them a different color of sequins.


I stamped the balloons in Versafine Black Onyx ink and used my craft knife to cut out the inside of each balloon.  I then marked the openings on a scrap piece of card stock and used that as I guide where to adhere my sequins down.  I used Summer Sun, Perfectly Purple and Summer Sky satin sequins. The front panel is popped up with foam adhesive to stand away from the sequins a bit.  I stamped out the sentiment and fussy cut it out and popped it up over the balloon strings.  I wanted to keep the card very neutral so the balloons would pop.  Well not literally of course. :) I think this is a card that could be used for anyone just change the colors to fit the appropriate recipient.  

Have a great day!
