How To Love Your Sequins! || Flamingo Cards || First Edition 'Sweet Nothings'

Hi all,

So you know I'm obsessed with flamingos...?
And shiny things?
Here are a couple ideas for you to use your sequins. 
These cards are made using the First Edition 'Sweet Nothings' papers from Trimcraft. 


  1. Cut a pink tag from the cut apart sheet in the 12x12" Sweet Nothings paper pad. Use it as a template to cut a tag from white cardstock too.
  2. Die cut a flamingo from the pink tag. 
  3. Using 3D foam, stick the flamingo tag to the white tag.
  4. Put glue in the aperture and add sequins.
  5. Add strips from the cut apart sheet to the bottom of the tag. Add twine to the top of the tag.
  6. Die cut a sentiment from patterned paper and stick to the bottom of the tag.
  7. Use a green gelato or watercolour paint to colour a small white doily. Stick this behind the tag once dry.
  8. Cover a plain frame with patterned paper and stick behind the doily & tag.
  9. Behind these stick a scrap of patterned paper.

  10. On a 6x6" card blank, layer up a 14 and 13.5cm squares of patterned paper.
  11. Stick the tag layers onto the card, sandwiching silver thread while doing so.



  1. Cover an A6 card blank with patterned paper.
  2. Cut a 14.5x10cm piece of white cardstock.
  3. Lightly draw a teardrop shape on its side towards the bottom of the piece of cardstock. 
  4. Add blue and silver sequins using glue.
  5. Around the edge of this and around the edge of the piece of cardstock, odd dots of 3D pearl effects.
  6. Add a die cut flamingo and die cut sentiment.
  7. Finish with more dots and adhesive gems, then stick to the covered card blank.


Thanks for stopping by!
