Doodlebug Sequins

For today's The Alley Ways Stamps card, I have used a couple of stamps from the darling Cake Day stamp set.

I started by adding a black and white striped border to the right edge of a 105x148mm card base. I trimmed a 98x148mm piece of my Copic colouring card and then stamped the super cute gift stamp 6 times down the right edge in black ink.  (I used my stamp positioner to make sure each one was placed perfectly!).  I then coloured them with my Copic markers (colours listed above) and fixed the panel along the left edge of the card base.  For the sentiment, I carefully inked up "celebrate" of the "celebrate you" sentiment stamp from Cake Day in Versamark ink, stamped it onto a scrap of black card and heat embossed it with my favourite white embossing powder.

Originally, I was going to cover each gift with glossy accents and then sprinkle the tiniest amount of fine loose glitter whilst it was still wet, but my glossy accents isn't behaving itself at the moment, so I think I need to relent and buy a new bottle.  I really love the look of sequins on a card, but I have a very hard time using them (I prefer enamel dots or enamel accents), but as I wanted a bit of sparkle, a few sequins made there way onto the card anyway, lol!

I followed CAS(E) this Sketch #106 for my layout:
