Create a Critter 2 - Creation #2

Today's card using the "Create a Critter 2" cartridge is a clean and simple one.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white card stock for the base, then cut some red card stock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and another piece of white at 5 1/4"x4."  I used a Spellbinders die, from the Scalloped Ovals set, to cut a hole in the bottom corner of the white mat.  I then backed it with some yellow card stock from Core'dinations.

The ear of corn is from "Create a Critter 2."  It can be found on page 64, the icon feature, and was cut at 2 1/2."  I also cut its shadow at 2 1/2."  I gave it a Peachy Keen face, using one of the faces on The Cornies Face Assortment, and colored in the eyes and tooth with a white gel pen.  I adhered it over the scalloped oval with some foam tape.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  It is part of a stamp found on the "Spring Fair" set.  I masked off the second part of the stamp and stamped it in london fog ink by Tsukineko.  I then added three buttons from Favorite Findings under the sentiment.

For the inside I cut some red card stock at 5 1/8"x3 7/8," some yellow card stock at 5"x3 3/4" and some white card stock at 4 3/4"x3 1/2."  I layered them together and adhered them down.  The sentiment is the second part of the sentiment from the front.  This time I masked off the first part and stamped the second, again in london fog ink.

I made this for the following challenges:
