Cute As A Bug

Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!! Hope your week is going well.

Today I am sharing a card I made with the Recesses Window Tutorial on Splitcoast. I saw a card that Beate had made with the tutorial and wanted to give it a try.

I just had gotten this fun little set called "Love Bug". It is a level 1 hostess set in the current catalog. I stamped the bug twice onto some watercolor paper and used my blender pen and some Bermuda bay and rose red ink to color the bug. I then cut out the bug and mounted it over the first one with some dimensionals.

The base of the card is made with Bermuda Bay and followed with some rose red cardstock and then the DS paper comes from the Thoroughly Modern pack. The card took me quite some time to make because this was my first one, but once I got it down, I think the next one would be much easier. Still this card is a bit tricky, with all the measuring and scoring and cutting out. I added an extra bit of measuring by adding the frame around my middle piece, that is not shown in the tutorial. I just thought it needed it since I didn't get my center square cut exactly perfect and this little mat covers up any imperfections.

Well that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
