Thanks for the great video and technique tips! MFT shaker pouches make it so easy to make shaker cards!

it was great to see the pouches being used. i had forgotten i had these. i don’t think i have the triple circle though. it does make it easier instead of trying to line up just one die three times.

Great video, Stephanie. I’ve had the Circle Trio Shaker Window & Frame set for years, but have not been very succesful in using it. So your video really helped. Thank you.

Jeanne H July 18, 2019

WONDERFUL card and FABULOUS tutorial!
The ornaments are so pretty and your tips along the way very helpful, especially with using tape to secure the shaker pouches and strategic sequins to cover the join in the ornament string => THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING :)
