I came across a tulle shaker card that the amazing Jennifer McGuire posted recently. You can find it here. Tulle shaker card tutorial

I love shaker cards. I never considered using tulle before though. I love how it creates a very soft elegant feel. So this is my version of her card. It is for my friends daughter’s wedding. It fits her theme perfectly.

I had trouble keeping my sequins inside the tulle, I think the tear tape I was using wasn’t strong enough. So I hand stiched a circle, using the left over cutout piece from my window as a guide.

I used a Stampendous cling stamp set ‘Bird Blooms’ for my flower and leaves, Tim Holtz distress inks; Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn for the leaves and for the flower Seedlees Preserves and Dusty Concord. My Sentiment was a Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamp ‘Together Forever’ which I stamped using a versacolor ink cube ‘Amethyst’ and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and an unbranded die from my stash to cut out the window. My Sequin’s are from Neat & Tangled ‘Sweetheart Sequin Mix’ and I also added some small silver hearts from my stash.
