Year of the Pig Sister Stamps

This is the June release for the Sister Stamps Zodiac series. Shown today will be the Year of the Pig. Papers used: Basic Grey Konichiwa Paper (not sure if this collection is still available or not), Stampin Up Kiwi Kiss, Recollections Pink and Brown. Lettering Delights SVG Pagoda Image from their Asia Collection. Tutorial for the basic Free Standing Pop Up on Split Coast Stampers here

Pig Kanji and sized appropriate ovals are cut using SCAL. Celebrate the Year of the Pig is computer generated using the Chinacat free font. The Pig Kanji word adhered to the front - Jewel-like Flower Sequins (product #CH-119) are from Hero Arts - very iridescent and subtle. Impression Obsession #060-I Grass Die used on the Front as well as on the Pig - be sure to clear the opening - otherwise the grass gets caught and gets mangled when opening up the card.
Another Flower Sequin is on the pagoda top. Cricut Create a Critter cartridge Hat from the Panda image cut at 2". Stampin Up Square Lattice Embossing Folder used on the Pagoda and the hat. The Pig attached to the clear acetate panel works great for this card - see, you can't see it!
 Copic colors used: RV000, R83, R81, R27, G24, E44, E31
 The side view: Note the clear acetate with sticky tape is slipped into the smaller slit.

NEAT-O!!!! Your little piggy is just the cutest ever dressed in his straw hat sitting in front of the pagoda! Love the idea of using a standup pop up card...yours is great with the extra slit...I'm still trying to figure out how you did that!
