Hello again! I’m popping in to show a cute little card I created for an upcoming ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ window display at The Handmade Marketplace. The Handmade Marketplace is full of wonderful, locally handmade products from local artisans. I volunteer my Thursday mornings to help run it, and I sell my cards and papergifts within the store. You can find the Marketplace at 58 Prince Street in Busselton :)


For my card, I used a base of Emerald Envy cardstock. This was punched on the sides with a 1/8″ handheld punch, to resemble caterpillar chew marks. A little sponging with Emerald Envy added to the effect.

IMG_2253IMG_2254For the caterpillar, I used Cucumber Crush, Garden Green, and Emerald Envy card, punched in 1″ circles. The face was a 1-1/4″ circle of Real Red. The eyes were punched from Daffodil Delight and Cucumber Crush card, using the Owl Builder punch. The mouth was Basic Black card, punched with a 1/8″ handheld punch. The antennae were cut from Wisteria Wonder card using the little spoon die from Frozen Treats Framelits. For the caterpillar’s feet, I used Soft Suede card, and used the tree branches from the Tree Builder punch.

IMG_2251The card front of Whisper White was stamped with a sentiment from Better Together, using Memento Black ink; and the card inner was stamped with a matching sentiment. The inside of the card was finished off with an apple cut from Real red card using the Tree Builder punch.

IMG_2259The envelope was stamped with the circle image from Work Of Art, and I used Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Emerald Envy, Wisteria Wonder, and Fresh Fig inks for a dotty watercoloured effect. I finished the card off with Black Rhinestones.
