The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: fun with felt
Showcasing the Spring plush release.
Now apart from some felt I couldn't afford to get any of the amazingly beautiful dies, they were just beyond my means :-(.
Now I thought the felt would be perfect for the little caterpillar (cute caterpillar from Memory Box) as caterpiller sometimes are hairy and tactile, so perfect for a child's birthday I thought.
I made a panel slightly smaller than the cardbase and cut out the caterpillar.
I then diecut several colors of felt to make a rainbow caterpillar.
I stamped the sentiment from Sizzix (birthday by Stepahnie Barnard) with Versamark ink and heat embossed Wow! black twinkle embossing glitter.
I thought to use the bold sentiment from Birthday balloons by Simon Says Stamp, but it was a little too small, the balance was off.
I ran some sticky tape on the back of the caterpillar openings and fitted the felt pieces in their spot.
I added two googly eyes with Aleene's fast grab glue, as all kids (and grown ups like me) love googly eyes!.
Mounted the panel with foamtape just like the first card.

Cheiron says I love this adorable fuzzy caterpillar by Maaike in all the colors of the rainbow! The perfect idea for a kids card, anyone would love this felt fella :)
