St. Patrick's Day Worm


Here's a fun little St. Patrick's Day I made with my Gypsy, the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge, and the My Creative Time I'm a Lucky Girl stamp and die set and Stitched Postage Frame Die.  I made the card base with my Gypsy by creating a tilted rectangle that is the same size as the opening in the postage frame.  I heat embossed the three little shamrocks and the sentiment from I'm a Lucky Girl onto the green patterned paper with some Zing White Embossing Powder and then adhered all of the layers together, including a frame made with the Stitched Postage Frame Die.


Next I cut the cut worm from Create a Critter 2 at 3". I didn't cut his hat, because I wanted to use the cute stitched dies from I'm a Lucky Girl instead.  I used Glossy Accents on the shamrock to give it some extra shine.


Since this card has a window,  I needed to finish off the inside as well.  I cut a back for the worm by cutting a mirror image of the green layer.  I added a little strip of green cardstock to give the look of the back of his bow tie and cut an extra hat for the back as well.  I also added another frame to finish it off.

If you are feeling up for a challenge, Cassandra has a fun one up today on the My Creative Time blog!  Head on over there and join the fun!
