This little piggy … he says happy birthday! A simple and sweet card perfect for a 2 year old’s birthday. Cut and fold a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (100730) to a vertical 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 standard card base. Layer coordinating paper rectangles measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and 3 x 4 **Disclaimer the Garden Green Paper is retired** feel free to choose whatever paper you have. Stamp the pig image from the This Little Piggy Stamp Set (143922) on a 3 x 4 piece of whisper white cardstock in Momento Ink (132708). Create the background using an Aqua Painter (103954) with Balmy Blue Ink (147105) for the sky and Call Me Clover Ink (147139) for grass. Color the pig with Stampin’ Blends Ivory (144606), Flirty Flamingo Combo (147278) and Light Soft Suede (146874). Finish the front by tying a bow out of Whisper White Baker’s Twine (124262) and adhere with a balled up Mini Glue Dot (103683). Stamp the inside with an appropriate sentiment, in this case I chose happy birthday from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set (143662) in Call Me Clover.
