Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!
Today I'm sharing a shaped card from the new March Release Hogs and Kisses along with the new Hexagon Nested Die Set and the new Criss Cross Gingham Background Rubber stamp! I fell in love with these cute little pigs, and these Hexagon dies are going to be so fun to use on cards and other projects! The background stamp is just so beautiful, I think it speaks for itself!
To begin my card I die cut from pink cardstock two of the largest hexagon shapes, two green panels from the next size, and two white to make my shaped card. I used the Criss Cross Gingham background to stamp the green panel in a light green ink. Then I stamped my images in a Copic safe black ink on #80 Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut the images out with my Brother Scan n Cut.
I colored my images with greens and yellow red Copic markers. I then stamped the sentiment sending you Hogs and Kisses from the stamp set in the same light green ink used with the background stamp.
I scored the inside pink base of my card with my Scor-Pal Tool near the top, added a strip of Scor-Tape to adhere the two pieces forming a shaped card.
I adhered pink and green thread to the back of the balloons with washi tape, connecting to the back of the pigs adhering washi tape to secure the thread in place. Then popped both images up with foam tape. I also used a couple of warm gray Copics to add a shadow under the pigs.
Then the final image was this cute little pig holding a xoxo banner, I added him to the inside of the card.
To complete the card I added white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen, shimmer with a Nuvo Shimmer pen, Glossy Accents on the balloons, the heart and to her bow, and added acrylic bubbles!
I adore this card and it was so fun to create!
