I cut the card base and envelope using the Envie die by Avery Elle. The base is in three pieces - white, Soft Sky, and Garden Green. Actually, the die cut fence is a Dark Chocolate piece layered behind the grass, so it's really four pieces total. I brushed a white pigment inkpad over the Soft Sky to mimic feathery clouds.
I used a Garden Green marker to add grass details. Once all the base pieces were assembled, I stamped my sentiment from Piggy Bank in black ink. I also stamped another sentiment from that set, "Hope your day is filled with squeals of delight", on the back. I plan to write a short personal message underneath.
I stamped the hay bale image from Farmer Girl using Hello Honey ink on the matching cardstock and cut it out. I added some shading using the matching marker as well. Then I colored and cut out a little chick from the same set to place on top of the hay bale. My cute little pig needed a companion!
How could I resist another polka-dot envelope to go with it? Now I have one more mini card in my stash. Of course, school ends for the summer in just three weeks so I need to use it soon. Here's hoping my daughter squeals when she sees it! :)
