Happy Birthday Tulle Shaker

I have been playing with tulle shaker cards this weekend. The Unity Stamp Co Facebook page has had a couple of videos making tulle shakers and I had to give it a try.

I cut a stitched rectangle panel with my largest die and then I arranged this lovely flower stamp in one corner. I stamped it, then turned the paper 180 degrees and stamped it again. Once I got it colored, I used a smaller rectangle die to figure out the opening and then I just penciled the straight lines on. I cut along them with an Exacto knife and then fussy cut around the flowers. 

For this shaker I wanted to have a little room for the sequins to move so I cut 2 rectangles with my next largest die. I centered my flower panel over them and then traced around the inside of the opening. I used an Exacto knife to cut the inside out making it slightly larger than the flower center panel.

I used double sided tape to adhere those 3 layers together. I then put double sided tape on the back of the flower panel. I made sure to put some close to the edges of the flowers so the sequins wouldn't go behind them and get lost. I cut a piece of tulle and adhered it to the flower panel. I turned that panel over and cut away any tulle showing on the outside edges. I then adhered the double layer frame behind the flowers making sure none of it showed on the inside or outside.

I poured a pile of sequins onto the middle of an A2 size black card panel and then careful centered my flower panel over it. this was mounted to an A2 size card.

Copic Colors used:
Flowers-B91, B95, B97

I made another card using a faux shaker panel created with 2 layers of tulle.

For this card, I cut a frame using a die and adhered a piece of tulle behind it. Then I placed sequins on the backside of that layer and using double sided tape adhered another another piece of tulle over the sequins. I turned this over and trimmed the tulle along the outside edges. I used double sided tape to adhere this to a card base that I had ink blended the edges on. I fussy cut the ice cream pieces out and used glue to attach them to the frame along with a sentiment.
