I'm not sure what got into me with this card. I started with the idea of a critter instead of the leaf element. Then somehow the square became a barn! The barn is a giant die set that makes a full-size easel pop up card - it's absolutely charming. But that didn't fit the sketch, so I just cut the top part down through the window - then I trimmed the edges so that I have a mini barn. It's just the right size for my "Whittle Pig"!
The sentiment is actually a long sentiment. I trimmed it very close so I could also cut it right down the middle.
I must have enjoyed making this. I very rarely make a card with no idea to whom I will send it but I have absolutely no plans for this one. My 21- and 25-year old sons would die if they happened to open a card like this in front of their friends. My nieces are girly teenagers - a pig really doesn't work. But I enjoyed every minute of making this - mostly because the pig made me smile every time I looked at it - so it will go in my stash and hopefully come out someday.
I hope to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
