All of my literary friends will recognize the title as a quote from Charlotte's Web when Charlotte is trying to convince Mr. Zuckerman that Wilbur is no ordinary pig for slaughter. In fact, he is "Some Pig". Can you imagine, walking in from your mail box, facing a stack of bills and finding This Little Piggy instead? You might even exclaim, "That is Some Pig!", like I did when this adorable card arrived in the mail from my friend Selene.
I really like how this pink card, carries the rustic feel all the way through the card. First, the card base itself is embossed with the Pine Planks embossing folder. No, I've never seen pink pine planks, but it works here! Then, the hint of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon is reminiscent of a bandanna Fern might have worn in her hair, or of curtains in Mrs. Zuckerman's farmhouse kitchen window. Finally, the Night of Navy is repeated in the paper frame around the pig. How did she get the little pig colored so perfectly? Well, one way is to use the New Stampin' Blends (available Nov. 1!!!) , but since she sent this before the Blends were introduced she stamped the pig onto Whisper White Card Stock to make an outline. Then stamped him again onto Powder Pink Card Stock, then fussy cut him and adhered him right onto the original outline. This paper piecing technique is so awesome! It really adds a lot of depth to a card, without adding bulk or a lot of work.
Go on, give it a try! And if you'd like the This Little Piggy , let me know. I'll be happy to order it for you. Or you can order it on my store, using the code MAVTX2PU.
