    W&W WCMD leaf shaker card

    Hi Sorry for the multiple blog posts today, that I was feeling inspired. Here is my final card for the current Winnie and Walter world card making day challenges.

(For some reason I can’t save the challenge image 😕) Today’s card uses the great W&W new home die. The font is perfect for die cutting and layering up for dimension. I cut it out of four different pieces of scrap patterned paper I had lying around, four pieces of fun foam and adhered it all together along with some seed beads to make shaker dies cuts – I love these. I used the scallop rectangle from W&W Audrey’s…
