Birthday, Handmade Cards

Sequins IN or Sequins OUT, I can’t decide!


The card on the left has the sequins going inwards while the card on the right has the sequins pushing outwards. Both cards use all the same materials. The only difference is the the position of the cupcake/sentiment and the direction of the sequin embossing on the foil paper. Comment below I would love to know what you think of either design!
