Trendy Twine & Batty Sequins! {POST #2}

Good Morning everyone!!

If you are looking for my Trending Now project with My Creative Time, please click HERE or scroll down to the next post.

Today is a fun group post day over on the 
The DT is showcasing some new Halloween sequins being added to the store that are perfect for all those Halloween shaker cards!!
For my card, I am showcasing the new Grape Licorice Trendy Twine and the adorable Grape Licorice Batty Sequins.
I LOVE making shaker cards! They add such a fun added element to cards and tags! To make my card, I started by die cutting 3 circles using the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies from MCT. I then added a piece of acetate to hold the sequins in the circle die cuts. Next I added a layer of fun foam to fit the circle cut outs and to add the room necessary to place my sequins inside. Before I added all the layers, I made sure to stamp my sentiment into the largest of the circle so everything lined up and the sentiment could be seen perfectly. The fun part comes next...adding the sequins! I filled each section with the amount of the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins I wanted and closed it up by placing another piece of acetate onto the back. Those sequins have plenty of room to shake and are not going to fall out!
I finished my card off my added some Grape Licorice Trendy Twine to the top of my card. Such a beautiful color of twine!!!
Some random extra sequins and some cute bat die cuts complete my Halloween card!
