This Birthday Piggy for PP613

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, LeAnne is hosting our Clean-and-Simple (CAS) Challenge.
It’s Clean-and-Simple (CAS) Week and LeAnne has a fun “Anything with Wheels” theme for us! As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly which stamp set I was going to use. As always the CAS part always proves to be the biggest challenge for me. Haha!  

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
I just love the little scooter-riding piggy in the This Birthday Piggy stamp set! He’s so cute kicking up that colorful confetti as he putters along spreading happy birthday wishes. I really wanted this little guy to pop, so I added a little strip of the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series Paper. This paper is truly one of my favorites! There is SO much paper in the pack and it’s perfect for so many different occasions. It is available as a Host Exclusive and can only be purchased with a minimum $150 order. I also added some texture to the white layer with the Gingham Embossing Folder. Because I always have to add “just one more thing” to a CAS card. The struggle is real, y’all! 

Note: I did use the Playful Piggy Dies to cut out the image and little bandana. These dies unfortunately are no longer available as of 9/30 but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Stampin’ Up!® might bring them back in the future. 
Card Measurements & Details: 
  • Polished Pink Card Base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”, emboss with Gingham Embossing Folder
  • Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper: 3-7/8” x 2” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to die cut a 3” circle and small banner from Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to stamp piggy image and color with Stampin’ Blends, die cut with Playful Piggy Dies (no longer available) or fussy cut image
  • If you don’t want to fussy cut the image, you could stamp the image directly on the die cut circle instead
  • Poppy Parade Cardstock: scrap to die cut the bandana with Playful Piggy Dies (no longer available)
  • Basic White Cardstock (card interior): 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper (card interior): 1” x 5-1/4” 
Finally, here is a peek inside the card! I stamped a coordinating sentiment along with a little hint of the piggy image. The polka dot paper just keeps the party going from the front of the card!
