You've been struck by cu-pig!

Good morning! Are you ready for another Valentine project? 

I couldn't resist cutting one of the piggies from the Lettering Delights Hogs and Kisses cut sets. :) And I knew exactly what I wanted my sentiment to say, but unfortunately I don't have a stamp that says this...so I had to use the print and cut feature on my Cameo to create it myself.

Isn't it perfect?
I used the Pretty paper, Pretty Ribbons Layered Labels 1 cutting files to create the card base in Silhouette Studio. The card base measures 5 inches x 5 inches.
To create the print and cut file, I just took the base layer and added the font to it. You have to make sure the line color and fill color match (in my case I chose black) to have a well printed sentiment on patterned or colored paper. 

The pink layer is from a 6x6 paper stack, so I just used some TomBow Repositionable adhesive to stick it to my 8 1/2 x 11 inch standard paper. I've tried to cut the paper down to a 6x6, but I've found that it shrinks my file down. Not sure if it was something I had done, but I know I hadn't changed the size. :) Then feed the paper through the printer, then the cameo and voila!

That's it for today! Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

I had so much fun printing this sentiment, that I've created another project using this same technique for my post on Thursday...so don't forget to stop back by!
