Since the weather man this week is threatening us with some grossly cold temperatures I thought a little punch of spring is needed right now! The ground is snow covered, I can't see more than 15 feet out of the window thanks to some very thick ice fog and I'm prepping for Christmas with all the trimmings. This card may be a little out of place, but seeing it has cheered me up chased away a little of this chill in the ole' bones!
At the time I received this kit in the mail I had recently seen a huge amount of Hungry Caterpillar crafts online. With that in the back of my creative mind and the inspiring color palette, I got straight to crafting.
I immediately knew I wanted to create a cute caterpillar but alas I (still!) don't have a basic circle punch. (I know what you're thinking - how is that possible?!) That was quickly remedied by grabbing a small bar glass to use as a tracing template. Then I ran into another roadblock with the colored cardstock. Each one was an awkward size that didn't fit with my plan. My scissors took care of that one! Take a look!
|This cream colored polka dot paper makes a very girlie caterpillar.|
|A small shot glass was the perfect size for the circles to make the body and I used a fine tip pen to add the finishing touches.|
|Those awkward sized cardstock pieces? I opted to cut them into strips and layer them to create a fun and colorful base!|
This card puts a smile on my face! I think finding this in your mailbox would be a sweet way to bid winter a fond farewell! Now I have to cross my fingers that the upcoming winter isn't too terrible!
Happy Scrapping! Candice
