I finally found a cardstock paper that I am happy with for use with my mini note cards, recipe cards and bookmarks. This paper is really smooth and gives a nice surface for the ink to hold to. It is just thick enough and I can trim and score it easily. At $12.99 it is a real bargain in my opinion.
Here is my newest pig mini card (5.5 x 4.25 inches) that I have featured on both of my Etsy Shops. The regular listing is for printed cards and then I have created a digital file listing on my second shop that allows you to print as many cards yourself as you like for one low budget friendly cost. The only restriction there is that they must be for your personal use and not to be resold.
|"Having a Swine Time"|
I'm adding new listing almost everyday, and this past week it has been pigs. The artwork here on this card is a piece I titled, "Having a Swine Time". I think it would be perfect hanging in a bathroom, child's bedroom or a baby nursery. Like all my prints I have sizes ranging from 4 x 6 to 11 x 14 inches and you can have me matte them or you can pick out a frame at Hobby Lobby or a Michaels and let them matte it for you.
|"When Pigs Fly"|
A second piece I finished this week is called "When Pigs Fly". I know we have all heard that expression but who knew they actually make a flight vest that would work with a pig. I guess if you have enough helium balloons you can get almost anything off the ground. I would say the birds do look a bit surprised except for that one that has decided to hitch a ride.
|"Purdy the Spring Pig"|
Finally, and probably my favorite is "Purdy the Spring Pig." Purdy is just so pretty in her cute bunny ears. When the daffodils bloom you know that spring is here and I think is ready, don't you? This design was so much fun that I decided to use it for my spring garden flag this year. Both prints, cards and the garden flag are available on my Etsy Shop.
