WATCH ME WORK WEDNESDAYS - EPISODE 9 SHAKER CARD - FREE FILE

Hello all, last weekend I held my very first Christmas Card Making Party with 8 amazing ladies that I had been chatting with (some for years) on social media. We all had a blast.

Each lady made a sample card and then made up kits for each of us to make their sample card.
OMG OMG OMG talk about so much talent. Each and every one of them. I learned and saw lots of amazing things I didn't know and needed to buy for my own crafty stash.

Today my WATCH ME WORK WEDNESDAY VIDEO - EPISODE 9 I will show you all the sample card I made AND at the BOTTOM OF THIS POST is the link to get the template FOR FREE so that you can make one of the fun and QUICK shakers. The free file contains just the shaker part - so after you make that, you will just need to add that shaker to another piece of paper and then to a folded card....all this is in the video SO BE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEO. The template comes in PDF, SVG, MTC and WPC formats.
