Surprise, surprise, surprise ... 2 days in a row!!!  Whatcha think about that???!!!

Today's card is a Christmas card - using the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set, Ornament Punch, Sparkle and Shine Jumbo Wheel on Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ink.  The Rich Razzleberry c/s is cut 11" x 4 1/4"  and scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4" ... so they meet in the center.  I cut squares of c/s at 2 3/4", 2 5/8" and 2 1/2" and after sponging color on the edges of the Very Vanilla squares, I mounted them on top of each other, add the punched out stamped image with Stampin' Dimensionals so it is just a little bit raised.

I absolutely love all our Stampin' Up! punches fact, I just started a new drawer for the newest punches!  They are so useful not only for card making, but great for adding embellishments to your scrapbook pages too -- and save some money too.  So many figures can be made with our punches - and they are such fun to create!  If you don't have our latest Stampin' Up! Idea Book/Catalog, let me know ... they cost $9.95 but I sell them to my customers and friends for $5 ... with a coupon for $5 off your first order with me of $25 or more.  Guess that makes it free, huh!  Just let me know you are interested in a catalog, placing an order or joining me with your own SU! business ... most of us are just hobby demonstrators.

So, here's today's card ... two views so you can see how it is folded.

So, do you think you will try this method of cutting and folding a card?  Be sure to let me know how you like it when you do.

Once again, I would like to remind you to stop back on Saturday for the VC Blog Hop ... see you then!
Hugs, Sassy Shirley ... now go and be creative!
