Caught a Bug?

5/19/2017 Update: Winner at The Male Room Challenge #59.

Have you ever questioned yourself with, "What was I thinking when I bought this?" That's how I felt about this stamp set after receiving it. It's kind of grown on me now that I have made a Get Well card with it.
On a panel of white cardstock, the bugs and beetles were stamped in multiple steps. Some of the stamps are two-step and some are three-step. A strip of vellum was added with the stamped sentiment then it was adhered to a taupe card base.
The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and decorated with a line of stamped ants.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:

  1. That's awesome Melanie! I love the colors and your little critters look great. Perfect guy card. :)

  2. LOL, your stamp set came in perfectly for this get well card, it would brighten anyone's day, especially the men in our life. Love it. It's great for our Many Legs challenge at The Male Room. Faith DT

  3. Your personalized design paper almost matches one of the CTMH Design papers, creepy crawlers and don't like beetles; but it does make a great get well card with that sentiment. Fun card.

  4. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I LOVE, LOVE this card! Those bugs are just super. Sorry to be so late commenting! Thank you for playing along with our Many Legs challenge at The Male Room. Deborah, DT. x
