Tuesday's Talent

Hi everyone, Mandi here for your Tuesday Talent series. Today, I will be focusing on the Natural Burlap String Navy Blue Burlap String Gold Sequin Confetti and Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti products. The pattern paper I used on this card was from Fancy Pants “Good Fellows” collection. All of these are going to be used on a fun shaker card, which just happens to work for a guy’s birthday. We all know it is hard to make a fun guy card.

The shaker frame was so easy to make.

  1.  Adhered a piece of plastic (I used a piece of a page protector) to the backside of the chipboard frame.
  2.  Attached foam tape (I didn’t have any so I used foam squares) alone the four edge.
  3. Place sequins inside.
  4. Stamp image/sentiment to pattern paper that is the same size as frame
  5. adhere backing to frame.

To adhere the cork shapes, I applied adhesive to them with the x sticker maker from Xyron. I then laid the the cork stickers on top of the string, this acted as a tape to attached the string.

Thanks for stopping by and I hoped I showed you that sequins / shaker boxes can be used on guy cards.

Mandi here stopping by to share a fun technique that uses the Dazzlerz dimensional paste. The supplies I used to create this card is the  Sea U in the Mornin’ Shimmerz DazzlerzMay Arts Burlap String, and A Mermaid’s Tale

To create this foiled and embossed textured paper it is super easy to do and there is no need for any foiling machine.

First, you need to apply a thin layer of dimensional paste to cardstock, make sure it is covered completely. Let it dry to about 5 minutes or  a little longer, it should be tacky. Apply the foil and run it through an embossing machine with the your embossing folder of choice. Remove the foil sheet. If it didn’t cover everything you wanted just grab a new piece of foil and press it onto the spots.

The best way to adhere the string and sequins is to use a fine tip application glue bottle with your favorite liquid adhesive.

Don’t forget to make sure the outside of the envelope matches the card. Create a custom envelop seal with leftover scraps and a circle punch.
