A Bug, A Smile and Patterned Papers

I made this card to enter into a few challenges.  I used Create a Critter to cut the worm and Just Because Cards to cut the apples and the wording.  Because the card cartridge uses the base card size to then proportion the other cuts, and I didn't cut a card from it, the sizes were weird.  The larger apple shown was cut at 4" and it only measures 1-1/2".  I still don't quite understand fully how Cricut sizes things!  The papers are all patterned and from DCWV:  the yellow comes from the Citrus matstack; the red and the darker green used for the leaves and under the worm are both from the Christmas combo printed matstack; and the criss-cross green is actually a Heidi Grace double-sided paper.  There is a dotted pattern on the other side of this pattern which I'm putting on the inside of the card.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Bug Bites  create your best "buggie" project
Paper Cutz Challenge #84   use three patterned papers in any colors and theme
Chloe and her Clip-on Koalas  anything with a smile on it

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute card. Thanks for making me aware of the "cute as a bug" title. I have a LO that that would be perfect on.

  2. Such a cute card. Love the paper you chose for the apples. Sizing is sometimes crazy isn't it! Thanks for entering my smile challenge!

  3. You are right...The worm is cute. I received Just Because in the mail the other day, so I am exploring some of the cuts now. Do have any favorites?

    Great job and good luck with the challenges.

  4. This is absolutely adorable! I love it!

    Big Hugs Sweet Girl,
