Hogs and Kisses

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today and IT IS NEW RELEASE TIME! The collection is called COUNTRY FARM! It has the most delightful dies.  Everything from Tractors to Chicks to Cows!  Each die is just full of awesome details and can be used for so many different occasions.  Today, I am using the Farm Pig Peeker as a gift card holder / card.

This little gal is adorable with her floral headpiece.

I first started by coloring her with Distress Oxide inks.  I used Copic markers for the smaller floral pieces. (There is a sneak peek here of a card I'll have later this month for you!)

 I cut my A2 base and pocket from a Co'Ordinations cardstock which gives a weathered look when sanded.  I wanted it to have an "old jeans" look.  The Pocket was cut from the Peeker Pocket die which is currently out of stock.

I traced the pocket onto a piece of light blue cardstock and cut it slightly smaller than the pocket.  I glued this to the back of the pocket.

The pig peeker is glued to the pocket NOT the card to make a gift card holder. 

The front view.

I added her flowers and glued the pocket to the card panel.  When adhering a gift card pocket I insert the card while gluing so I know that I have enough room for the card. If I don't, I have at times, glued the pocket piece so tightly to the card that I can't insert the gift card! 

I stamped the sentiment and used the smallest of the Stitched Rectangle Slimline dies to cut a banner.  The excess I trimmed with scissors.

Finally I added a small daisy in the corner to match the daisy in this little piggy's headdress.  This panel can be used alone as a gift card holder or as the front for an A2 card!

This little oinker is so cute- and the way she is peeking out of the pocket is even cuter- creative idea
