Acorn Shaker Card

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap with a fun card to share.
This month the DT is featuring the Orange Truffle twine which is a twist of orange and brown. It is perfect for all of those Fall projects.
So for my inspiration I made a Thanksgiving Shaker card.
If you have yet to try one of these cards out yet, I highly recommend you give it a go....they are so fun and very easy to put together. 
To make my card, I started out with a file I purchased from the Silhouette Store~An A2 Fall Acorn card by Lori Whitlock. The frame of the card is actually cut out and perfect for threading my Orange Truffle Trendy Twine through.  Before moving on I stamped my sentiment~ from My Creative Time- Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set.
Next I started the shaker part of my card. I began by filling the top part of the acorn with layers of the Orange Truffle Trendy Twine.  Once the twine was secure (I used the Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid Glue~my go to for using with my twine)
I added a piece of plastic (recycled stamp package) and then lined the bottom part of the acorn with some foam strips.  

~Remember when making these the shaker part is all put together behind the card front~

Next I filled the inside of the acorn with  my gold sequins and then added a backing of the matching designer paper..that holds everything in place and now you can flip the card over to see the sequins shake inside!

My shaker is complete and now the card was ready to put onto my card base. And since I wanted the shaker to be the focal point, my base is a plain brown piece of card stock.

 I hope you  have enjoyed my project and will give this a try!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Day!!!
