Creative Escape Papercrafting Fall Frenzy Kit and a Shaker Card

Hi.. this is my 4th card for Creative Escape Papercrafting using the Fall Frenzy Kit. For this card I am sharing a shaker with fun sequins. I save lots of plastic shapes from scrappy packaging to create my shaker cards... they are perfect and the many shapes and sizes are awesome.


This kit is packed with hand-picked goodies to enable you to have a fall card making frenzy.  It’s perfect for Thanksgiving cards but also has elements that you can use all year.
The kit contains:
1 “Forest Feast” Lawn Fawn stamp set featuring 14 images and 11 words/phrases (made in the USA)
1 “So Thankful for You” Lawn Fawn die, approx. 5.75″ long (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” 12×12 Double Sided Paper 3″x4″ Journaling Cards (cut into 2 pieces for shipment) (made in the USA)
1 Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” Seasonal Stripe, approx. 12″x1.75″ (made in the USA)
12 double-sided 6″x6″ sheets of Echo Park “A Perfect Autumn” paper (made in the USA)
1 sheet of 8.5″x11″ yellow card stock
2 sheets of 8.5″x11″ kraft card stock
3 sheets of 8.5″x11″ white card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ copper card stock
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ water color paper
1 sheet of 8.5″x5.5″ alcohol marker paper
1 Fall Frenzy sequins mix (1.5 teaspoons of sequins)
3 assorted die cut pumpkins (various sizes)
10 assorted die cut leaves (various colors and shapes)
3ft of yellow and white cord
3ft of  jute twine
3ft of natural hemp cord
1 bottle of Golden Sunset Nuvo Glitter Drops (1 fl oz)

So to start this shaker card... I pulled the plastic form to hold the sequins, some accents, paper and a cut small sentiment and the base cardstock.  I am using a square to accommodate the shape of the plastic size.

I decided it would be really colourful... so I also make the background base for the shaker super colourful using  rows of fun bright strips.

I cut the plastic to be a perfect square.... and filled it with sequins. This piece of plastic actually had the border edge that would allow me to slide the print paper background into the slots... glue is added to all the outer edges to contain the sequins.

After it's glued I use clips and papers clips to hold it firmly while it's drying.

I now put the rest of the layers together. A beige behind the shaker section and then I wrapped and tied a bow around the shaker section .. then glued it to the background base.  All this was then mounted to the fun bold red cardstock and mounted to the base white cardstock card.

In the close up you will be able to see the details.... as the layers and fun twine tied bow in this one.

Here is the section with the matted sentiment applied.

Here is my finished shaker card.

Thanks for stopping by... I'll have many more cards from this kit to share so hope to see you again soon....... have a great day.
