Stampin up petal card double punch bunny chick video tutorial

Are you game for a simple 3-D box and a new video to teach you how to create it?  How about  little Easter-inspired punch art?  I had so much fun playing with paper and punches to come up with my bunnies and chick.  Plus, I'll introduce a new stamp from the Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog–so keep reading.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  The Petal Card Double Punch (119273) cuts and scores.  For best results, press the circle on top of the punch (not the end of the lever).  I'll demonstrate this tip and how to create the box in my video tutorial:

A special thanks to Stampin' Up! demonstrators Amanda Harbison and Beth McAlexander for their ideas and inspiration for the Petal Card Box.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  The Basic Black Square is 1" x 1".
