I’m loving the smaller scale of these little 4-bar sized cards I’ve been making recently – they’re so cute!  For my interpretation of the challenge I looked to the smallest creatures of all – microbes!  In a previous life I obtained a degree in microbiology so this stamp set, Healthy Vibes from Paper Smooches is really quite appropriate!!  I stamped each of the bugs onto a sheet of gorgeous Taylored Expressions paper from the new Rainbow Brights paper pack and fussy cut them out.  I then took the Borders 1 dies and cut my white front card panel across the bottom third with one of the dies (the heartbeat one – no idea of the technical name??).  With a strip of one of the other papers from the same pack I placed it behind the gap.  I then simply stamped the greeting and popped the little bugs onto the front with foam adhesive and added some googly eyes – for which I never need an excuse!!!

all creatures great and small
