Peppa Pig birthday

We have two little girls turning 5 this month and I thought that
Miss Peppa Pig might be a fun way to help them celebrate.

Here is the first one of the two cards, the second is still being pieced together.


This huge stepper card stands 8 1/4" tall and 5 7/8" wide

Here is a side view so that you can see the stepper panels. 
 Close-up of the back panel showing the detail of Peppa Pig with her 5 balloons.
 Close-up of the front panel showing the sentiment.

Here is my recipe for a paper-pieced Peppa Pig:
  • Head & body - Fiskars XXL circle lever punch 2 1/2"
  • Cheek - Fiskars Medium Round 'n Round squeeze punch - 1"
  • Nostrils & eyes - confetti from Lil' Inker Designs Baubled Christmas Tree die
    I adhered them together then coated them with Glossy Accents
  • Mouth - Fiskars Medium Round 'n Round squeeze punch - 1"
    I double-punched the circle, held in the punch with a Post-It Note
  • Ears - Fiskars XL Petal By Petal squeeze punch, smallest petal
  • Hands - Fiskars LE Owl squeeze punch
    I trimmed the legs out of the body
  • Tail - Fiskars Swirl Around lever punch
  • Legs - 1/4" strips
  • Shoes - 1/4" strip Fiskars 1/4 corner round squeeze punch
    I adhered the shoes to the legs then coated them Glossy Accents
Other products used for my card include:
  • Cardstock - American Crafts Textured
  • Patterned Paper - Kaisercraft Miss Nelly Collection - Her Dreams
  • Balloons - Balloon Die set by Lil' Inker Designs
  • Metallic thread - for the balloon strings
    YES, they were a challenge to tie, to knot together and to curl too
  • Thickers foam stickers - for the "5" on the dress and for the name
  • Pumpkin Stazon Ink by Tsukineko - to colour the alphas before adding the Stickles
  • Word Dies - Sizzix Framelits Regal Card Stand-Ups die set by Stephanie Barnard
  • Fruit Punch Stickles - used to add sparkle to the "5", Peppa's dress, the balloons and sentiments
  • Star Dust Stickles - used to add sparkle to the pink inlaid stars of the balloons
NOTE to SELF
Think about adding some punched grassy border layers to "ground" Peppa
and some matting the inside of the card too

*********************************



I use lots of pink and orange cardstock in my crafting and tend to accumulate a lot of scrappy pieces from each 12 x 12 sheet, so I had plenty of SUPER SCRAPS on hand to punch & die cut the elements to embellish this card.

Entries close 2am CST Saturday 19th September

    1. Thank You Amy :)
      Both girls ADORE Peppa Pig, so I hope they will like her.
      I'm working on the 2nd card now, getting some grassy layers for the background.
