Valentine Shaker Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#75

So, my original vision for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#75), was to make a photo frame into a shaker card using tulle instead of plastic film. I ended up ditching the die cut frame after 3 unsuccessful attempts.

And, yes, I actually had hot pink tulle in my house. (left over from wedding favor project circa 2004 or 2005?) Doesn’t everybody?   😉

Here is a close up of the tulle window:

Definitely a card that will need to be hand delivered – a tulle window is not sturdy enough to mail.

The inspiration for this challenge was from the Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 collection:

  1. Love the heart sequins! So cute and matches the inspiration so well. Yeah!

  2. Super fun – I don’t happen to have hot pink tulle laying around my house, but I’m so glad you did!! And it stinks that sometimes those shaker cards don’t work the way you want them to. But good for you for persevering until you were happy with it! Love every detail! Thanks so much for playing with us at the Runway Inspired Challenge – we’re so glad you did!
