I have been wanting to try this tulle shaker technique for quite some time. I saw this on Jennifer McGuire’s website. My card looks a lot like hers but I was not trying to copy her exact card. It was the technique I wanted to try and I happened to use similar flowers because I had them colored and liked them. My sequins don’t show that much but they are in there. It is a fun and fairly easy way to make a shaker card. I am not a fan of cutting all the little pieces of foam tape to keep the sequins from escaping so this was a nice solution.
For the hole where the tulle and sequins go I cut that with a Spellbinders die Peony (S4-193). You glue down some tulle over the hole on the backside, drop in some sequins, glue another piece of tulle on then glue it to the base of the card. Some of the sequins in there looked clear but when I added them they were kind of iridescent and kind of didn’t go with the card but I let it be.
The flowers, leaves and sentiment is stamped in Rose Gold embossing powder on watercolor paper and colored with either Copics or Zig Clean Color pens. The stamp set is a nice one from WPlus9 called Modern Peonies. I also sprayed the flowers and leaves with Shimmer Spritz or Perfect Pearls. Whichever it is the shimmer is really nice. I guess that’s what happens when you wait so long to post, you forget what you used sometimes. I also don’t ever think to write it down.
