Hogs and Kisses

Hi, Lois here again with a fun Valentine card for you.  CottageCutz has some new die sets, only this time they come with matching stamps!    As I love to color, you know I am loving these new sets.  I made a funky Valentine card using the set called Farm Animals.

Supplies used on this card are:

Cardstock - Recollections Red, White, Pink
Patterned Paper - Martha Stewart's Key & Heart pad
Ink - Versafine Black, Memento Red
CottageCutz sets - Farm Animals, Happy Valentine's Day Phrase,  Sweet Love BordersSweetheart Doilies
Other - foam pop dots, Copic markers, Scor-Tape adhesive sheet

I found a layout I liked and went to work.  First I stamped and colored the pigs.

Then I cut them out.

The Valentine collection has a nice sentiment, a row of hearts, and some doilies that would work well with my chosen layout.  I backed both the red and pink cardstock with an adhesive sheet to make it easier to attach the sentiment and heart border to my card.

Now I was ready to construct my card.  I glued the patterned paper at the top of a white panel, laid down the sentiment and the heart border and adhered the panel to a red card base.   After gluing down the layered doilies, I added the pigs (popped up with foam pop-dots) and stamped a little heart between them.  I then stamped the "Hogs and Kisses" sentiment at the bottom and added the red die-cut heart (which actually came out of the sentiment) -- and I was finished.
