Stitched Sequin and Bead Border Card

Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a card I created with a fun sequin and bead border.

I gathered together some of my favorite papers and embellishments from BasicGrey’s Urban Luxe collection.

I created a card front by adhering strips of patterned paper (two that were edged with decorative scissors) to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ patterned paper panel, leaving some open space for my sequin and bead border.

In the open space left for the border, I marked a spot every 3/8″ with a pencil down the center of each strip.

I then pierced a hole at each mark with a paper piercer.

I got out the sequin and bead mix from the Eclectic Embellishment kit and a needle and thread.

I added some tape along the back of the card panel over the thread to hold it in place.

I threaded a sequin and a bead and ran the needle back through the sequin, repeating this step for each hole I pierced.

After I finished adding the sequins and beads on both rows, I knotted the thread on the back side of the card and trimmed the ends.

I added tape along the line of thread on the back side of the card to hold the thread in place in case one of the sequins or beads gets pulled accidentally.

I ended up with two beautiful sequin and bead borders on my card.

I finished the card by adding a sentiment with Watercolor Paper Die Cuts (also from the Urban Luxe collection) and a flower from the Eclectic Embellishment Kit.
