DT post by Kate - Super Cute Critter card set!

Welcome to My Craft Spot!  This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm so pleased to be sharing a project with you today.  Last week, my youngest was off at camp and I had such fun creating these little cards for him so he could have a little bit of love from home each day!


Each of these cards was made using Create a Critter - for the card base and the critters themselves.  I used a Darice embossing folder for the clouds and a Fiskars punch for the grass.  The snow border and flakes on the penguin card were made with a Martha Stewart punch.  All sentiments are from the My Craft Spot collection.

I used Alphalicious to create envelopes for each of the 3x3 cards.  Each one has a stamp punched with the Postage Stamps metal dies and stamped with a variety of stamps from the Postage Stamps stamp set.  The border, images, flourishes, sentiments and cancellation stamps are all from this set. I had so much fun adding a little something extra to each of the envelopes!


For the horse card, I used a sentiment from the NEW Down on the Farm set.  (The sentiment is actually "HAY there neighbor" but I just used a portion of it for my card.)


For my sheep card, the "Love EWE" sentiment is from Cute Critters.  I also added a bit of embossing.



The "Have a Beary happy day!" sentiment is from the NEW Tiny Tags 3 set.  These sentiments coordinate perfectly with the Tiny Tags metal dies.


I realize that the penguin card is a bit different from the others in this set I've created, but my little guy LOVES penguins - so I couldn't resist!  I created the "You're cool!" sentiment by combining two stamps from Build a Valentine.


The fun sentiment on this squirrel card is from the NEW Tasty Treats set.  I also used some Cuttlebug embossing folders on the acorn and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen stamp.


Finally, the sentiment on this fun cow card is from the Cute Critters set.

Thanks so much for visiting My Craft Spot today!  Have a wonderful day!
