Peanuts and Peppers' Card Challenge

Happy Friday!

I love Stampin' Up! products because the papers easily coordinate with so many things like the ink, ribbon, buttons, etc. I am in Lisa's hostess program so that once a month, I spend a small amount to collect the things I want. But I digress...on to Lisa's challenge:

The challenge was step-by-step directions each week, starting with the basics: card stock.

I love SU's card stock because it is sturdy. I cut the base (red) 8-1/2 x 11 into two and did the same for the white (one panel will go inside so that I can write on it).

Layers are important.

Add an image and sentiment and your card is almost done.

For the white card stock, I punched a border using my SU border punch.

I added a bow and gem stones to bring it on home. Wasn't that easy? If you'd like to see some really awesome crafts, check out Lisa's blog - she's so awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting! :-)

Hiya, loving your bunnies, they really made me smile. Your colouring is fabby on this gorgeous card too. I see why you have been so busy now.

It looks like you can't get Gorjuss sitting anymore:

so I could send you some stamped images if you like, but you might need to send me your address again though... (don't send it to my old e-mail though, could you send it to fluffnstuff)
