Fall Acorn Shaker Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Thursday, December 28, 2023

We're almost to the new year and it's my last Pretty Pink Posh throw back post! I have one more Autumn card that I made this year that I haven't shared yet on my personal blog and it's one of my favorites because it's a shaker card and also beautiful colors. For the Layered Fall Wreath Stencils, I wanted to go a little non-traditional in my colors. I stenciled the leaves with the A layer in different colors of Distress Oxide onto a cream colored cardstock. I used Saltwater Taffy, Speckled Egg, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo with foam blending tools. For the leaf details of the B layer, I used some brown stencil paste which gives the background some subtle texture.

When the background was dry, I trimmed it to be slightly smaller than A2 and glued it to my card base. Then I made an Acorn Shaker from shimmery brown and rose gold cardstock and filled it with Espresso Confetti. I wanted to add in some cute images from the Fall Jar Stamp Set, so I stamped a few out on cream colored cardstock in a brown ink and colored them in with alcohol markers. I used the Fall Jar Coordinating Dies to cut them out and attached them to the top of my acorn. I added a few more Espresso Confetti pieces around my card for some extra shimmery fun.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing a lot of Pretty Pink Posh this past week-ish and it gave you some inspiration for birthday, Spring and Autumn cards for the upcoming 2024 year!
