Vintage Effect Cards...

Monday 17 June 2013

If you are like me and have sequins in your sewing box and want to do something different with them, then why not use them on a card.

You will need -

pearlescent card
pearlescent sequins
glue gun
acrylic paint
painting brushes
gold pen

Let's Create ...

1. Decide what your shape is, mine was a 'six' as we have been together for six years. Yours might be a heart or a letter or two.
Sketch this roughly on your paper.

2. Using your glue gun, you need to quickly stick on the sequins, filling the gaps with smaller ones.

3. Once your shape is sequined up, then take your paint and add a layer of paint over the top.

4. I then added a wash and gold pen around the shape.

5. If you want to add some wording to the card front.

It's a really vintage texture to add to wedding invites, anniversary cards and framed monograms.

Try the technique out and let me know what you make..
