The technique I used on the background has been dubbed Embedded Embossing. An easy technique, it gives a really cool quilted look.
To recreate your own precious pig, here's how you do it:
Button Buddies stamp set
Lucky Limeade card stock
Melon Mambo card stock
Pretty in Pink card stock
Whisper White card stock
Melon Mambo ink
Pretty in Pink ink
Seam Binding Ribbon (this color is retired)
Mini Glue Dots
Square Lattice Embossing Folder
3/16" Corner punch
Circles #2 Originals Die
3/4" Circle Punch
1" Circle Punch
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Pretty in Pink card stock in half, creasing well with a bone folder
Using the Big Shot and the Circles #2 Originals die, place a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Melon Mambo
card stock over the die, and run through to make your four largest circles. From scrap of Melon Mambo, punch out one more circle with the 3/4" Circle Punch. Adhere these five circles to a
4" x 5 1/4" piece of Lucky Limeade card stock as desired. Run the entire piece through the Big
Shot inside the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
Use the 3/16" Corner punch to round all corners of the green, as well as the pink. Adhere the green piece to the card front.
On a scrap of Whisper White card stock, stamp the pig in Pretty in Pink. Cut out carefully with the Paper Snips. Glue a pink button on for her snout. Transfer and attach a small and a large pearl for her eyes. Tie a snippet of the green ribbon in a knot, and attach to her ear with a
Mini Glue Dot. Adhere the pig to the largest circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.
On a scrap of Pretty in Pink, stamp "thinking about you" or sentiment of choice in Melon Mambo ink. Line up and punch it out with the 1" Circle Punch, and attach to the second largest circle
with a Stampin' Dimensional.
