One More Mother's Day Tulle Shaker Window Card

Hi Everybody,

My most recent post showed a card I made from Jennifer McGuire's video on Tulle Shaker Window Cards.  Here's a link to that post and it has a link to her video,

I made a second one using a yellow card stock by Gina K Designs called Sweet Corn and I embossed the sentiments in gold. I finished the card up and discovered there was a HOLE in the TULLE!!  Luckily the hole wasn't very big and it was near the edge of the window.  Well, guess what, I fixed it!  I can't believe I was able to save this card.  I put 3 layers of 1/4" scor-tape going different directions over the hole, then I placed a large foam square over the scor-tape and then placed a large flower over that.  So, learn from me my little grasshoppers lol.

I know people always say you can always fix a mistake on a card somehow but a hole in tulle??  I never thought I would be able to fix that. 

For my card today with the gold embossing, I used the stamp set from Casual Friday Stamps called Pretty Posies.   I inked up the flowers with Tim Holtz inks, Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber.  The leaves are inked with Tim Holtz, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.  I used Stampendous Detail Gold Embossing Powder. Supply list for second card is on my previous post, link at top of this one.  

I hope you liked my cards and my fix for a hole in tulle.  I hope you'll try to make this card, it is a lot of fun for sure!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Good job at improvising to cover the hole. I never would have known if you hadn't said anything. It's a beautiful card!

Gorgeous shaker card design and a great save too! It looks like you planned to do it this way right from the very beginning. Love the colors you used too.
