I was inspired by a card I recently received from a swap I was in…the card pattern was called a “wiper card”.  Take a peek at the interactive part of this card!

Yes – a “wiper” pops out of the top of the card, to give this card a little “pop”! I cut the square bracket from our Art Philosophy cartridge (cut at 1 1/2” & 1 3/4”)

This wiper card was quite easy to create…I found the instructions at 

I haven’t created much with our twill ribbon yet, and was excited when I thought to pair it with the white shimmer trim!!

If you know our shimmer trim, you’ll know that it’s 3/8” wide…so I cut it in half prior to applying to the middle of the twill ribbon.
