Lovin' the Piggies!

Hello everyone! I thought that I would share a gate fold card that I made with the super cute DRS Piggies! I love these guys and guess what? Pigs in mud are my favorite color combo... PINK & BROWN! I started with a piece of paper that was 4.25 X 5.5. I scored it at 2 1/8 and also at 6 3/8. I folded the card with a bone folder where it was scored to make the gate fold really stay tightly closed.I think the key is to score it ALOT with a bone folder.I cut pink and brown paper in layers to fit the sides and I added texture to the pink paper for fun and interest! I stamped the little piggies on white CS and punched them out. Then I punched 3 larger brown tags and mounted them. I adhered 2 on the right hand side of the card and one on the left had side of the card. when it closes, the tags help keep the card closed! I stamped the DRS Hogwash sentiment on the inside of the card! I hope that you will try this fun card fold! I like to mix things up with my folds and this one is quick and easy! Thanks for looking!!!

Love the fold on this card. The pigs are too cute. Colors are great and the swiss dots top it off. Thanks for sharing.

I'm Lovin' the piggies too! This card reminds me of the 3 bears though - not too much and not too little, it's just right!
