“Guinea Pig in a Crate” card


“Guinea Pig in a Crate” card

Create a little crate for your stamped guinea pig!  This card started with the position of this one little piggie – he had his hands (paws?) out like he was leaning on something – so I went to look up what kind of cages or crates these lil critters live in. I found some that had a grid for the top and some kind of base at the bottom…so that’s what I made! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

On this card I just used the front end of two of the piggies, and masked off one word of the sentiment with a sticky note:

And this lil guy is peeking in from the side – I pulled his little hand (paw?) out to wave hello!

Hope YOU have a great wheek wheek wheek!

Cute card – lots of good tips, as always – I didn’t know you could add more colored pencil on top of the gamsol. That may come in really handy one of these days! Thanks for everything you do!
