Smile!



For my Creative Critterz Imaginations post this week, I made a card for a friend who is going through a rough time. I love this sentiment from My Creative Time's "Turn That Frown Upside Down" Stamp Set. Combined with this happy caterpillar who is escaping from his bug jar, it has to cheer somebody up!


The sign (cut at 3") and the caterpillar (cut at 2") are from the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge. The 3.5" jar is from Boys Will Be Boys, and the grass (cut at 1.2") is from Plantin Schoolbook. I used my Imagine for the entire card. All of the colors and patterns are from the Imagine More Cards cartridge, except for the grass, which is from the Best Friends cartridge.


For the bug jar, I used the "cut only" feature and cut it once in white and once in vellum. I then put the caterpillar in between the two layers, adhering him to the white layer, and stitching around the edges to fasten them together.
