This little Piggy.....



 Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by. My card today is the cutest mix of old and new; an old, retired Stampin'Up! stamp that is no longer in the present catalogue so only available second-hand, and a brand new 6 x6 DSP called Bright and Beautiful which is in the new Annual catalogue (#161449).





I made the card for our niece who is crazy about all things Piggy. In a recent tidying of the craft room (sharp intake of breath, here) I rediscovered a handful of centre stepper card bases that I had made ages ago - result - just right for a piggy. That would have been a bit bland for this character so I added a topper element. I've hand-drawn a template from my own bases. If you're in the US, your card will be shorter at 11" so please use the extra sizes on the far right and the full length of your card. 




 I love the new DSP - it's just right for any kind of celebration and they suit this card so well. The 6x6 packs have 48 sheets so plenty of fun ahead. you might see lots more cards using these papers with the new in-colours - lemon lime twist / pretty peacock / azure afternoon / blueberry bushel / berry burst / bubble bath. 

If you need lots of co-ordinating cardstock, SU do a mixed pack of 20 A4 sheets so you can try them all out with minimal outlay - such a great idea! (see product list below)

Thanks so much for joining me again today.
