Happy 4th of July Happy Summer with Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set – Pig & Pickles card

Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ Happy 4th of July/Happy Summer card, by Paperesse.

Here's the second of my Porky BBQ themed 4th of July/Happy Summer cards made from one of the eight images in Digi Web Studio's Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set (on sale for just $1!). The Porky grilling stamp was used on my first card.

Paper is Tactile Studio Wendy digital paper pack (also on sale for $0.99). I paper pieced the pickles and jar label. The perfect for a pickle sentiment 'Have a dill-icious summer' is from my own sheet I created for the images.

  1. Bwahahahahahahaha, "dill-icious summer" - I love it! Fantastic card, Shani!

  2. This is a great summer card! The coloring is great and I like the spots on the pickles to add detail to them. The enamel dots match the background paper too. It's a funny sentiment, I think the comment above said it for us! You can't forget the pickles at any BBQ .. I love pickles... Thank you for entering Artistic Inspirations Challenges!

  3. Squawk! Love the sentiment - also the paper pieced pickles! Using the paper choice you did with the random white dots actually adds realism. I like your pencil work with grey shading and the very subtle pink - nicely done Shani!

  4. This is so cute! Thanks for joining us at Crafty Sentiments this week! Anna

  5. Though I'm not a fan of pickles, I think your card is adorable. Love the fun sentiment.
