Little Piggy

Hello there, I am back with my final card to share that I made last year but didn't post (well, I think it is my last!). This one was for my niece for her birthday, she happens to like pigs, like her aunt, so I thought the MFT Little Piggy would be perfect for her card!

I started off by cutting various shades of cardstock using the MFT Little Piggy Die-namics. I used Hero Arts Peony Cardstock for the main part of the pig, Hero Arts Antique Ivory Cardstock for the tummy, feet, inside of the ears and hands and Simon Says Stamp Smoke Cardstock for the eyes. I blended on a little Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on to the pieces, for some added dimension. The pig was then assembled using liquid glue but I did not add the head on at this point, as I wanted to pop it up.

I then created the background. I took a white A2 card base, placed the MFT Cloud Stencil on top and blended on Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I cut two grass pieces using the MFT Grassy Fields Die-namics from Hero Arts Kiwi Cardstock and then blended on a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for some added texture. The pieces were adhered to the bottom of the card with tape runner.

I took the Lawn Fawn Party Balloons Die Set and die cut the balloon part from Simon Says Stamp Lavender Cardstock and the string from white. I then blended on Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet Distress Inks on to the balloon, followed by a layer of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze for some added shine. The pig's body was added flat to the card with tape runner and then I added the head on top with foam tape.

The balloon was added with tape runner and liquid glue (for the string). I took the sentiment from the MFT Birdie Brown Greetings Galore Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to strips and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added more Crystal Glaze to the pig's eyes and nose.
