For todays project I have a video that walks you through the new Mama Elephant ‘Wiper Surprise’ creative cuts (die) set. This set makes a fun interactive card known as a ‘wiper card’. When you pull the sides, a little surprise pops up from inside the card … a delightful little surprise!
There are a few ways you can customise this set, but I wanted to show you the difference between the wiper arms / pop up pieces, and run through a few do’s and don’ts when using this die.
Yes, you can use a wave, cloud or hilly die to create a scene on the front of your wiper card, but you can also just use a plain front and back piece and decorate simply with a sweet design.
