Love Bug

Here is another Valentine's Day card I made using the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge and the Better Together Cricut Imagine Cartridge. My card base is white card card stock scored and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. My patterned paper is Basic Grey. The pink mat is cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the top layer is cut at 3 3/4" x 5". I used my corner rounder to round all the corners of the card and the mats. I cut the little bug at 3" from the Simply Charmed cartridge and used the Better Together cartridge to add the pink colors to the layers. The base layer of the bug was colored black and cut. I cut the sentiment Love Bug at 1 1/4" using both layers and again the Imagine for the colors. I added some Martha Stewart pink glitter to the heart on the back of the bug and some tutti fruity stickles to the bugs cheeks. I sprayed the sentiment with some Pearl Glimmer Mist but the shimmer doesn't show up in the photo. You do need to be careful doing this as it does look as if the color runs slightly. I added a pink satin ribbon and popped the bug up on pop dots. I am pleased how it turned out.
