Hogs and Kisses

Hi , this is Maria from Stamp, Cut, Create! My apologies for the late posting. Seems like I am still playing catch up from the holidays!  I am trying to get a head start on making Valentines this year and today I'm sharing the first one with you.
The card is a standard A2 size, 5 1/2" by 4 1/4". The solid papers are from DCWV.  The print paper is from Sassafras' Count Me In pad. The cut is from the Graphically Speaking cartridge and I used the Gypsy to size it at 5 1/4" by 4". The edges were inked with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I added a piece of grosgrain ribbon to this piece before adhering it to the pink mat. I then took another piece of ribbon and folded it to form the tail, then placed a brad from My Mind's Eye through all the layers.
The cute little piggy is from the Cricut Lite Playtime cartridge and is cut at 2 1/2".  I inked the edges of all the pieces with a Copic marker (R21) before assembling it. He's adhered to the card with foam tape. The stamp sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink, On the Farm set and inked with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Maria
