Lace Shaker Element With Pearls

We are so used to making shaker cards with acetate windows and sequins but there is a way to make them elegant....
I made a video on how to do this 2 years ago, but still am not seeing anyone doing I have made another video and you can watch it HERE

This is a wonderful technique for a wedding or anniversary card or just a beautiful shabby chic shaker card.

The beautiful paper is from the Prima Rose Quartz pad.
The lovely flowers are from Sherri Baldy's My  Besties Shop.
The butterfly was die cut from Sizzix Tim Holtz Butterfly dies.
The edges of the card were created with a Martha Stewart lace punch.
And you can't see it but I added a sparkly shimmer on the butterfly with CTMH Shimmer Brush.

If you would like to take a minute to watch my video for more details
