Just Us Girls #323 - Trend Week

Hi friends!  I'm hosting the Trend challenge over at Just Us Girls this week, and I chose SEQUINS as the trend. 
So how many of you have tried something Jennifer McGuire did and thought "how does she make it look so easy?"  Hahaha!  I recently bought a fuse tool.  I got it with a 50% off coupon at AC Moore and it was cheap!  So I checked out her videos on using the fuse tool and cased a card she did.  But it didn't go as smoothly as hers!  I won't go into detail, but let's just say this card took longer than it took Jennifer to do!  She's just so amazing!  This is the video I watched to create my card.
Anyway, I used the fuse tool and created a round pocket then filled it with sequins and sealed it up.  I attached it to the card base.  The I cut the round opening in the blue panel and used a stencil and texture paste to add the "snow flakes".  Santa and Rudolph were die cut and colored with copics and adhered.  That panel was added to the base with dimensional tape.
You can see more from our design team on the JUGs blog.

I love this sweet Santa and his little reindeer. You colored it beautifully. Lovely card design with the shaker of sequins and the embossed snow.

What an adorable card! Love it! I watched the video and it looks cool but I can see how it probably is not as easy as it looks. You did a great job though!
