Wednesday Be Inspired!

Today is Wednesday and that means a new challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge! This week's challenge was tough but really fun, to use your punches in different ways + use your Cuttlebug. I thought long and hard about this one, and here's what I came up with...

I cut 2 inch strips of paper that fit the width of my card and then used my Martha Stewart boarder punch to punch both sides of the paper. I then aligned them on the front of my card and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. My image is a digital stamp from Pink Petticoat. I then used American Crafts ribbon at the bottom, ruffled up half of it and stitched it. My cardstock is Colorbok. See all it took was my punch & Cuttlebug to make my very own fancy paper:)
Now it's your turn to see what you can make! Be sure to stop by Cuttlebug Challenge and check out all the amazing cards from theh Design Team!
