65 Year Old Sequin Card

This card required a lot more work then I usually put into a card. I die cut the 65 using my Cricut and the cartridge CTMH Art Philosophy. The purple cardstock is by Recollections and nn that same colored cardstock, I glued a lot of sequins in rows with Ranger's multi medium matte adhesive. I would adhere a bunch sequins down thinking I was close to being done and upon placing the negative of the 65 paper over the sequins, I was no where near done.

When I did place the negative over the sequins I did notice that the sequins had to extend farther then numbers because I used foam adhesive for the negative and you could see into the card. I thought that made the card look incomplete and therefore I did more rows of sequins to get the look I wanted.

Once the sequins were in place and the adhesive was dry, I added the foam adhesive to the negative 65 and applied multi medium matte adhesive to those foam squares. I placed the negative piece to the sequined paper and placed a heavy object on it to dry.

 I used a lot of foam squares and in retrospect I think I would die cut a regular full piece of foam when I die cut the number. It would save time not having to pull off all those backings of the foam squares and would look better from the side.

The swirl is a Cricut cut but I'm not sure what cartridge however I know that the flower is by Making Memories and the glitter circles by Recollections. I added Glossy Accents by Ranger to the flower.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Hi Cindy, love your card. You have given me an idea
    for an Anniversary card for my husband later in the
    year. Sharon
