Ham it Up

 I made this card some weeks back for my best friend's birthday but haven't really had a moment to share it until now
She is a big fan of a punny sentiment, as she comes from a whole family of punsters, so I thought this card was perfect for her.

I kept it fairly simple, stamping my images From the Hog Heaven stamp set in Versamark Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and colouring them with my Zig Markers and water. I added a little sparkle to the icing with my Wink of Stella pen.

I made an American A2 size card, vertical top folding and cut a piece of patterned paper from the Sweet Celebration paper pack, with the largest Die from Blueprints 15 and gluing that directly to the card base.

Then I used one of the Mini Scallop rectangles with some smooth white cardstock and cut out a circle. I framed the circle with some more smooth white cardstock cut with a Stitched Circle Scallop Frame and cut a small circle of smooth white cardstock for the middle.

I stamped a sentiment from the set in Razzleberry Ink from the 
Dye Cube Inks Set 9 in the lower right corner of the white rectangle and popped that up on my patterned paper with some foam tape, popping up the small circle at the same time.

I fussy cut my pig and cupcake (if you aren't confident with fussy cutting, you can purchase a matching set of dies for these), and added them to my card with some foam dimensionals.

Finally I finished with a few sequins from Little Things by Lucy.

Thank you so much for dropping by!
