Caterpillar Card Fun

By April 25, 2008General

I hadn’t seen many people use the caterpillar bits & pieces that Candice included in her new Pond Life set, so I thought I would put together a little card using them.  The set includes the head, body segment & backside all as separate images.  I loved this detail because it allows you, the artist, to do two things; control the length of the caterpillar & alternate the colors used for each body part.  For my project today, I wanted to make a bright, cheerful, sunny card, so I pulled out my new favorites, Lemon Tart & Summer Sunrise.  I created a few different patterned papers using a variety of stamp sets (see the supply list below) to create a strip medley on the cover.

After I had completed stamping my caterpillar, I added this fun sentiment from Pond Life Sentiments.  I think it is just SO adorable!  I also added Stickles to the little guy.  He just needed a little accessorizing!  Did you purchase Pond Life with our most release?  I would love to see your projects using the little caterpillar.  He has so many possibilities!  I know the Simple Alphabet would fit in each segment of the body, which would be so cute spell out a child’s name!
