February Card Hoppin' 2021

 Howdy y'all!

Today I am participating in the 

I can't wait to see what the rest of the hop looks like! I know there are a lot of YouTube videos taking place.  

The Hop List is

For my card today I used acetate or rather transparency film! Which I paired with my favorite color black! To create this fun shaker card with the help of some dies! I put a random selection of sequins inside the HAPPY die cut. Next I took a Lawn Fawn stamp set for the rest of the sentiment. Then I applied adhesive to the back of all the elements of the card. Finally, I brought out a SHARPIE and doodled a box around the sentiments!

The best tip I have for creating a card like this is to take your dies and a T-square ruler to align the letters. Also if you are doing a word like HAPPY but you only have 1 P then use another letter die to help with alignment. And if you are die cutting a word I recommend putting some low tack tape down to hold the letters together!

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Black, 3M Write-on Transparency Film
Ink: Gina K Amalgam Obsidian
Accessories: SHARPIE Ultra Fine Point, CTMH Block Alphabet die
