Hello! I created this card to join in Sugar Pea Designs June 2019 Mix It Up Challenge. I used both sketch and color inspirations in creating this card.
I stamped the pig images from the Sugar Pea Designs This Little Piggy stamp set. When I purchased this stamp set, I did not realize that it comes with mirror images of the pig. If I have known, I would have bought the coordinating stamp set. But anyway, I stamped this on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the pig with Copic markers and fussy cut each image, leaving a small white border around it.
I created the note card and front panel next. I die cut a stitched circle window on the white panel and light gray note card. I am using Bazzill Taffy cardstock cut into 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and scored at 4 1/4" to create a side-folding note card. The circle die cut the white panel only and left an impression on the gray cardstock. I lined up the circle stitched die to this impression until it matched, then run it through the Sizzix die cut machine to cut the circle window.
I embossed the SugarCut Harlequin Cover Plate to the white window panel. I trimmed off the edges to create a 4" x 5 1/4" panel. Using the same die, I die cut scraps of cardstock and patterned paper from my stash to match the colors in the color inspiration challenge. I adhered this to the embossed white panel to re-create the pattern on the sketch. It looks like a bit of work doing this especially around the circle window but what I did is temporarily adhere the diamond die cuts to the circle die cut and cut the excess. This little pieces matched up with the embossed window panel.
Assembling the card, I applied a strong double adhesive tape to the back of the pig images. I adhered a string to this, then applied liquid glue. I applied the same double adhesive tape to the gray note card where the string will be adhered. Adding liquid glue to the back of the white panel, I positioned the panel so the circle windows line up.
I did not want to put anything to waste so I used the circle die cut as a background of the pig. I die cut another darker gray cardstock to create a ground for the pig. I added hearts to this circle which I pre-colored with a red Copic marker and added clear Wink of Stella.
It did not add a sentiment to the already busy front panel. Instead, I stamped the sentiment on the hill which gets revealed when the card is opened.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy the short video I created showing the spinning feature of this card, and revealing the hidden message. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
