These cards are often beautiful or cute, but I'm a card maker so I don't mail them "as is" because I custom create my own cards to mail. So... knowing these two things I decided to make this video showing what I do with all these "free" cards.  Here are a couple of close ups of the cards featured in the videos... We can call this one "Church in a Blizzard"... LOL The card base is made from a blue cardstock that I used a shimmer brush on to add sparkle. It is amazing what a little bit of glitter and foam tape can do! This shaker card has just enough sparkle! I added a "stitch" around the edge using a sil
