September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Random Acts of Cardness

Close To My Heart has an amazing September stamp of the month, Random Act of Cardness!  You are going to want this set, especially after you see all the great ideas along this hop.  You're also going to love all the new products that you see on this hop, because CTMH just released TWO new catalogs: a core catalog available through August 2020, and a special September-October seasonal catalog! (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from the talented Brandi's blog.  From here, you'll visit creative Becca next.)
My card, however, doesn't use any of the new products.  In the hustle and bustle of back to school, I thought I had placed a new product order but actually did not hit the final "submit" button.  (That has since been rectified!)  I'm calling this a lemonade card because I definitely made lemonade out of lemons. (LOL!)  I started with a 5.25"x4" panel of White Daisy cardstock onto which I stamped the sentiment in black.  I then added a strip of black shimmer trim on the diagonal, followed by 1/2" wide strips of black cardstock and both sides of Sapphire cardstock.  A strip of silver shimmer trim then two pieces of Mint cardstock (both sides) finished the front.  I then attached this piece to a slightly larger panel of black cardstock and then finally onto the front of a Mint sidefold card.  I used Liquid Glass to attach the sequins to finish off this card.
The colors seem to show up better at this angle.


Don't you love all the sentiments in this great set?  Remember, it is only available this month! Please leave a comment before hopping on over to Becca's blog.  Thank you!
