Supplies Used:


Measurements:

  • Balmy Blue: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored & folded at 4-1/4″
  • Granny Apple Green: 2″ x 3-1/4″
  • Basic Black: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White: 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 5-1/4″ (for inside of card)

Instructions:

  • Fold the Balmy Blue cardstock in half. If desired, adhere the 4″ Whisper White mat inside the card. Set aside.
  • Using the Die Cut Machine of your choice, run the Granny Apple Green strip through the Machine, using the Grass die from the Wiggly Bug Dies. You may need to snip the ends of slightly.
  • On the 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the grasshopper about 1/2″ up from the page in Black Memento ink, using the Granny Apple “grass” as your guide. You want to see the bug but you want the grass to slightly cover him.
  • Repeat the process with the Worm image. Stamp the other insect above these 2 images so that it creates a triangle.
  • Color the bugs in using the Blends. I used Granny Apple Green for the Grasshopper, Lovely Lipstick for the worm, and Flirty Flamingo for the 3rd bug.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the upper right corner using Black Memento ink. Stamp 2 bee’s around the sentiment and color in using the Balmy Blue Blends.
  • Ink up a sponge using the Balmy Blue ink; lightly sponge in any white space being careful to avoid the stamped images.
  • Layer the Grass onto the bottom of the White mat and adhere to the Black mat.
  • To finish the card, adhere to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
