Hi there and happy Monday! Sharing a simple card here today and on the Gerda Steiner Designs blog using the new More Than Chocolate stamps. This little pig is so cute!

Since this stamp is on the larger side, it was easy to keep things simple and let him be the central focus.

I die-cut a panel from white cardstock and inked it with Distress inks in Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar. I stamped the sentiment from this set at the bottom in Versamark and heat embossed it with a dark brown embossing powder.

I then die-cut a heart and Copic airbrushed it with R85, R83, and R81. This is a new die from LaLaLandCrafts and I love it’s quirky shape. I die-cut the letter u from white cardstock, heat embossed it with a light pink embossing powder and then ran some Victorian Velvet over the top to give it a little texture. You could simply cut this from light pink cardstock as well.



I colored up the pig with Copics and fussy cut around him. After I adhered him, I added some shadows to ground him a bit with neutral gray Copics.

Super simple!

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
