Holiday Piggie

As the holidays fast approach, I start thinking about the neverending smorgasboard of food (and my waistline gets bigger).  Of course, the holidays means Christmas ham and I started thinking about a cute little piggie telling us to eat chicken instead.

Stampin' Up punches needed:
Ornament - head
1 3/4" Circle - body
3/4" Circle - snout & feet
Small Oval - arms & legs
5 Petal Flower - ears
1/4" Circle - snout
Modern Label - sign
Fiskars teardrop punch for eyes

For the pig, I used a Bazzill cardstock for the pig, but you could use textured Blush Blossom for the pig body and sponge the pieces with Blush Blossom or Cameo Coral ink.

1) Clip top off the ornament, round out pointed top.  Cut 2 petals off 5 petal flower for ears.  Clip a little off 3/4"  black circle and cut a little V wedge into the flat side for each foot.

2) Sponge all blush pieces.  Use mini glue dots to attach 1/4" circles onto snout. Attach snout to ornament head with dimensional.  Glue on eyes and add detailing with uni-ball white gel pen and zig detail pen.  I added a little shading around the eyes with a blush blossom marker. Glue on petals and fold down the tips for floppy ears.

3) Glue arms onto body.  Attach legs to body with dimensionals.  Glue feet on.  Attach "hands" with dimensionals.  Don't forget to draw on a "bellybutton". Glue head onto body (a little tilted).  Cut a small strip of cardstock 1/4" wide for the sign post.  Glue sign onto the post.

I used the new DCWV Holiday Collection premium stack
for my card.  Base cardstock is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 (cranberry crisp) folded in half.  Stripe print is 4 x 2 1/4".  Cranberry print is 4 x 3.  Glitter red strip is 4 x 1/2".

This is just to darn cute. My aunt and uncle raised pigs and had one of the presidents visit the farm one year. That was pretty cool.
