“Choose Happy” is the March Stamp of the Month. Once I saw just how darn cute it is because you can make “Hungry Caterpillars” with it, I’m addicted to using it. I’m just having a great time creating these caterpillar cards for my preschool friends. I’m thinking of birthday cards, using the caterpillar, for my friends with babies/toddlers or anyone I give the “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” book by Eric Carle to.
Using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, I cut this card and backed the cut outs with different colors (Topiary and Thistle). Everyone has a scrap container and using your scraps to go behind the cutout images is a great way to use them. I did cut a back panel to cover up my paper piecing so the card looks neat when it’s opened. I used the border stamp (2nd from the right) to create the body of the caterpillar. I drew triangles for the legs and drew his head. Color him in with our Touch markers! Too simple and too cute!!
Then I took the journalling pen and doodled around the edges. I stamped “this day” and “you’re special” on it for the sentiments. The card was easy to make and even better, I can save the file in Design Space!
