Hogs and Kisses

Global Design Project #327 | Theme Challenge & SSC275 COOL WINTER LOVE

A Valentine or a love theme challenge is pretty easy but a colour challenge is, for me, always a bit more problematic. Matching as close as possible to the colours is quite difficult but I think I’ve managed it. The background die is an unbranded one and I used a failed dry embossing attempt for this. I figured some of the poor embossing would show without it being busy and I was right. I added it to a gray card front to meet one of the grays on the colour swatch. Then I took a silver leftover heart die cut and added a smaller one cut in the gingham on top and tucked it under one of the stripes. Using a Divinity Design cute stamp set I stamped and coloured the little pigs keeping as close as possible to the challenge colours. After die cutting this I glued another piece to the back to give it a bit of dimension and added it as you can see. I had stamped the sentiment from the same set and I went over this with a glitter pen before adding it to the layer. Using a small xoxo stamp from Joy Clair I stamped this in several places for added interest and to increase the Love aspect of the theme challenge. This could have been a really busy card but I managed to keep it fairly simple thankfully. Getting a one card to fit two challenges is a nice bonus.

  2. Cute little piggies in love image. Your background die is very neat and great idea of tucking the layered heart into one of the panel openings.

  3. This is a great card. I love the bit of embossing showing on the one layer and that tucked in heart looks like a sweet quilted one. This is definitely a fun card.


  4. So cute! Reusing the embossed panel was a perfect choice. The stamp images are adorable. Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps this week.
