Wanted to make a cute fun card for my husband, and had inspiration strike when I saw these classic candies on sale! Circus Peanuts (The Greatest Treat on Earth)! Who does not love a good orange peanut now and again?  Smiley



So here are the supplies you will need for our easy card of lurve!

1 orange peanut
adhesive
paper
letters or stamps
nail file
google eyes

After you make the paper card the size you want, get ready with your peanut. They have a dip on the bottom so you will need to file it flat to use for stamping.


Once flat get your ink pad and cover the bottom carefully but well.

Press one impression onto the cover of the card. Place your google eyes and draw on a mouth. Then add lettering, either by cut out or stamping.


Then add your lettering on the inside, sign and put in an envelope!


Then have more circus fun with a photo shoot with the rest of your orange goodness, before you devour them. Smiley Elephant Ballerina courtesy of rackycoo.
