Tulle Shaker Cards

Have you ever made a shaker card using tulle instead of the standard window sheet transparency?  It's fun and easy and actually a little more forgiving than window sheet.

The tulle is more flexible and can hold a little more 'ingredients'.  The window sheet holds it tighter and you can add glitter.  Glitter falls out through the tulle.*Ü*

This is the traditional window sheet shaker, see the difference?

How to make a shaker card with tulle.

Cut the circle - I cut it through both layers so you can see it all the way through the card. 
Line up a card front size sheet of cardstock and cut a hole lined up to match the front. You will use this layer to do the tulle work.


On the card front, I ran it through the embossing folder for texture and then I stamped and cut the vine with the Joyful Blooms Bundle from The Stamp Market.  I laid it on for now to see how it would look but did not adhere them.

I didn't get photos of the actual shaker part - don't ask me why! ;-(  But here is how you do it... 
Cut two pieces of (I used white) tulle larger than the circle you are covering.  I used liquid adhesive to glue one to the back of the circle (which is the backside of the card front piece).  Fill with sequins and adhere the other piece of tulle.  Layer this onto the front of the full card size cardstock so your work does not show.
On the outside of the card, add foam tape around the circle.

Peel the release paper and adhere the foliage to create a wreath.

I stamped and embossed the 'joy ' and adhered it to the side of the wreath.
Give it a try.  
Left side is made with transparency window and the right side is made with tulle.  Can you see the difference?
