Create With Terri Project #115 – Wiper Card Technique using Best Catch Bundle

www.CreateWithTerriGaines.comThe wiper card is a fun technique.  It looks like a regular card until you pull on the sides of the card and a wiper appears from the top of the card with an image attached.  There is a small card attached to the front panel for your inside sentiment & message.

This card is one of the cards my local monthly Technique Club made. It is the first technique project I’m offering as a Create With Terri Project Packet – a packet which contains all the materials (cardstock, designer paper, ribbon & embellishments) to make a Create with Terri Project.
