Back again with another scraps card. I have officially reached the half way point of this series with 15 more cards to go! This is also helping put a dent in my pile of scraps....
For this card I kept it simple but cute for a child's birthday. The card base is cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". The mat (pink) is cut at 5 1/4" x 4" and the patterned paper mat is cut from 5" x 3 3/4". I have had this patterned paper for awhile. I can't remember what paper stack it was from but it was all baby girl patterned paper. I loved it because some papers were flocked while others had glitter. I had enough from this scrap to make 4 cards!
The caterpillar and frame are both from the Create a Critter cricut cartridge. The caterpillar is found on page 54 and is cut at 3". I cut the caterpillar with black cardstock, layer 1 using the same green found on my card base and layer 1 is from a Basic Grey scrap that I had lying around that actually matched the pink in the patterned paper.
The frame is found on page 60 (cow) and is cut at 3 1/2" from ivory cardstock and again at 3 3/4" using the green. I cut this using phrase shift.
To finish the little guy off I added the Happy Birthday sentiment using my Studio G lime green ink and added some green bling! Viola!
