I made this card to participate in a Paper Piercing challenge on SCS. You can CLICK HERE to see all the submissions for the challenge to use piercing on a card. Some are quite fancy!
The mug has rub-ons added to it. It's cute, especially if you wanted to use the mug as a gift holder. I'm not sure I would do another mug with rub-ons because I don't think they will be permanent, especially after being washed. It's cute, but that's about it. I was hoping the rub-ons would be permanent ... but it was worth a try.

A closer look (below) at the piercing around the card. Stampin' Up! has a wonderful little Mat Pack template that works beautifully for piercing or spacing eyelets and brads, etc. It allows you to quickly make your marks and keep them even - that's a huge plus!

I also like the additional texture piercing gives cardstock. It takes it a step beyond plain, yet it can still be subtle.
