This Little Piggy Encouragement Card for WWYS #131

The This Little Piggy Stamp Set is adorable and the sentiments are sweet. I’ve used it to create an encouragement card for this week’s What Will You Stamp? Challenge.

On a card base of Powder Pink Cardstock, I attached a layer of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and cut a circle through both layers using the second largest plain die from the Layering Circle Framelits. I backed the card front with a piece of Gold Foil and then cut a frame from Basic Black Cardstock using the same circle die as well as the largest of the scalloped dies from the same set. To give the focal point a little something extra, I adhered some Gold Metallic Thread to the back of the frame before adhering it down.

The little piggy and the sentiments were stamped in black ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I watercoloured the piggy using Powder Pink and Blushing Bride, a little Smoky Slate for her wings, and Crumb Cake for her hoofs. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to her wings, and then fussy cut her out. I punched the sentiments out with the Classic Label Punch. I cut a strip of Gold Foil slightly wider than the sentiments and trimmed it at both ends to match the point on the white pieces, then ran it through the Big Shot with the scalloped circle die. So I had two pieces with a point on one end and scalloped on the other end; I thought they resembled wings. Cool huh? I offset the sentiments and adhered them using SNAIL and attached them (and the piggy) to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
