Howdy friends! I hope you're all having a great Friday and are going to have fabulous weekends! Today I have a fun little piggy to share. He's one of the past freebies from Miss Kate Cuttables (don't worry, you can snag him for only $.50 if you missed him as a freebie), but the birthday hat I cut myself. I have about a million birthday hat svgs and cricut cuts, but the bad thing about being in this little bitty craft room is that everything gets stashed away and then I don't want to get it all back out again, just for a triangle. So, since I had already put my Cameo away to make room on my table for the actual crafting, scissors it was. :) I figured he was a birthday pig because I'm a firm believer that you can do whatever you want on your birthday, and I imagine splashing in the mud is just what a pig would like.
I got the background label svg from Bird's Cards- it was a freebie too! Then I layered it on top of some MME paper and added three buttons in the top corner and a sentiment from Pink by Design in the bottom corner (btw, I love the Pink by Design "Artisan Tags 2" set that this is from because it's perfect for those times when you want to add a sentiment but your cut ended up taking up more space on the card than you had planned.)
I added some Firefly stickles around the green part of the tag because I thought my pig needed some sparkle. I like to put stickles on colors that are similar but slightly different to see what happens- this paper is actually a sea green, and I think it turned out looking nice with the brighter green of Firefly. It muted the Firefly stickles a little bit but livened up the pastel-ness of the sea green.
This card is being entered into the following challenges:
