Sweet Treats Pig Card

Today I have an incentive card to share with you. I made this card and filled it with the new in color ribbon for my downline members who reached a particular level in sales for the month of June. The pig was created using a variety of punches - isn't he cute?! Here's a list of punches used for this cute little critter.
  • Body - 3" circle cut from Circle Scissor Plus (112530)
  • Head - 1-3/4" circle punch (119850)
  • Snout - 3/4" circle punch (119873)
  • Eyes & Nostrils - 1/2" circle punch (119869)
  • Pupils - 1/8" circle punch (retired), or small punch from Crop-a-Dile (108362)
  • Legs - Word Window punch (119857)
  • Ears - 5-petal punch (119880)


I love using these little sweet treat cups (116802) and it's fun to come up with different ways to use them. Janet Wakeland, a wonderful demonstrator from the states, shared with us 100 different ways to use these little cups. Incredible!
