Caterpillar Card

As you may know, I'm a first grade teacher.  I love my job and my students are always very special to me.  This is my third year to teach and every year I send a card to my students in their final report card.  I don't tell them about it so I never know what they think of it.  I had a student come up to me about three weeks before school was out and tell me that they still had their card from last year and that they kept it in a special place and looked at it often.  That sure did make me feel good!!!!

Anyway, I do a different card every year for my students.  This year, I used the caterpillar from Create a Critter cricut cartridge.  I also used Locker Talk and hid some of the outer shaped from the first grade sign cut and welded it into a rectangle.  This was one less layer I had to cut by had b/c the cricut did it for me!!!  The letters are not make to cut out completely on this image so I took a silver sharpie marker and traced them in.

I used the Peachy Keen Stamps critter XL face stamps for the caterpillar.  I thank ran the caterpillar through my big shot with the Tim Holtz notebook embossing folder to give the caterpillar some "wrinkles."  I used SU! red dazzling diamonds glitter glue on the nose and orange stickles on the antennae.  I decided to glue on some google eyes to make it more fun for the kids.

If you have any questions, let me know!! Thanks for looking!!!
