Hog Wild

I had a rare day off, as in totally off - no work, no school - and I made good use of the time by crafting!

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of pink card stock.  I used a metal die from Jaded Blossom for the cupcake mat.  It is from the Card Mat Dies set.

I also used a metal die for the pink strip at the bottom of the card, this one from the Panel Dies set.  The sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom, the Party Animal set.  I tied some pink twine through a pink button and added it to the card by the sentiment.

The tag is another Jaded Blossom metal die.  This one is from Luggage Tag Dies.  I adhered it to the card with foam tape.  Both the pig and the cupcake are from SVG Cutting Files.  The pig is a file called Piggy Cookie and the cupcake is a freebie called Cupcake-1.  I obviously didn't cut the cookie and replaced it with the cupcake.  I inked around the edges of all the pig pieces with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I covered the cherry and the pig's eyes with glossy accents.  The bows are from the Cricut cartridge "When I Was a Kid."  I sized them to fit my little pig and then covered them with fruit punch Stickles.

I used the same die for the cupcake mat on the inside as I did on the outside.  The white square is also from the same Card Mat Dies set.  The sentiment is Jaded Blossom again, this time the Sweet Birthday Wishes set.

I made this for the following challenges:
SVG Cutting Files: crafter's choice
Cardz TV: birthday card
The ABC Challenge: pick something that starts with "B" (birthday)
Daring Cardmakers:  party animal
