Wonderful Wednesday Give Away - Cardkeepers!

I love give away Wednesdays, and this one is doubly special. I know you are going to adore this! This week our giveaway is sponsored by

The Cardkeeper Kit is perfect to make your own album for holding standard handmade greeting ards (A2 size, or 4.25" x 5.5"). Show off the cards you make, the cards your friends send you, or the cards you receive from swaps. The Card Keeper album also works great as a mini scrapbook, recipe book, or whatever else you can come up with.
If you are the lucky winner of the giveaway today, you will have a choice -- you can either have the "naked" cardkeeper Kit so that you can alter it to your own taste, or you can choose to take the kit I made as shown. Either way, your kit will come with the card shown below.
My kit was altered using Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!. To make this, I cut the paper to size and distressed it with a sanding block. Then I simply used Perfect Paper Adhesive to attach the paper to the front, back and inside panels. Note: You don't have to use PPA to attach the paper to the chipboard front and back. I chose to because I like the way it looks when the piece is finished.
The brown panel on the front uses the Vanilla Double Technique from the October 2005 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I finished my kit by attaching a few chipboard letters, tied some ribbon onto the "O" Rings, slid them though the pre-drilled holes, and Viola! My Cardkeeper kit was done.

The card above will be mailed to the winner of the giveaway whether or not they choose the pre-altered or unaltered Cardkeeper Kit. The card uses the same designer paper from Stampin' Up!, and the main Flower image is colored using the Twinkling Water Colors Technique from the June 2008 issue of the TJ Newsletter.

Okay, want to know how the kit and card could be yours?
