Gettin’ a Little Punchy

Apparently March 1st is National pig day.  I have never heard of this before but, while browsing a few blogs, I fell in love with this card HERE.  Here is my version totally cased.  I used punches and the NEW scallop Carousel note cards from the Stampin’ Up Spring Mini. I added a close to cocoa mud pit and a wild wasabi pasture as well.  My daughter has a thing for Pigs, in fact “Piggy” is her very bestest friend ever.  She saw this card and was all over it.  

The base of the card is cut with the largest circle on the coluzzle.  I left the edge off so the circle would fold open like a standard card.  I adhered this to the center of the carousel note.  All I have to do is add the sentiment.  

Then I made this bunny version for Easter.  these were FUN!!!

    I took a punch class at our local crafts store a few months back and had so much fun making "punch" cards, although the ones we made were not nearly as cute as yours! I love your cute piggy and National Pig Day is one of my favorite holidays! Oink, oink! TFS!

    Just adorable! The "shading" on the punches for the animals adds a really nice touch to the design.
