This Birthday Piggy
September 30, 2022
It is time for another Festive Friday Challenge! Farmers Day is the festivity we are featuring on the Festive Friday Challenge. What is the Festive Friday Challenge? The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List. What is an Inspo List? Every challenge has an Inspo list aka as an inspiration list, that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity. You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project. You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can. Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.
This was a tough one! I used for my project Farm Animal, Gingham, Green and Die Cut.
I had to pull from my stash to find this piece of Mint Macaron Gingham paper. I am trying to follow Ann's example and use those much loved pieces of patterned paper that we have been saving for just the right occasion. The farm animal is this adorable pig from the This Birthday Piggy stamp set. She is colored with Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. The balloons were colored using Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends and also paper pieced in a scrap of the Mint Macaron Gingham paper. The image was cut out using the Playful Piggy dies. Today is the last day to purchase these coordinating dies which are a part of the Perfect Partners promotion.
This card opens a little differently. The middle flap opens first to reveal the sentiment. Both of the sentiments are from the This Birthday Piggy stamp set.
The top and bottom flaps open next. I added a trio of gingham flowers cut using the Playful Piggy dies. The centers of the flowers are from the Dots and Spots die. I thought I might seal up the two edges of the bottom section and use it to hold a gift card.

Sharon your cute birthday pig amongst the gingham is perfect (I'm kicking myself that I didn't think to use this stamp set too!) Love it!

What an amazing fun fold, Sharon! This was a perfect card for using some of your much loved Mint Macaron gingham paper. Trust me...it does get easier to let go...although there are times that I feel sadness in knowing that is the end of a particular pattern. lol By the way, I waved at you on the way to the Mosby pumpkin patch. Have a wonderful week!

Sharon, I love the fun fold! I also love the gingham and the fact that you kept the colors to a minimum. that really helps to focus on your fun focal images. Your little piggy with matching balloons is awesome. Love it!
