I wanted the caterpillar to "inch" across the four panels so I stamped first, then cut. Just had to make sure I measured to take into account all the borders. I kept everything plain, except for adding a background with Polka Dot Basics to my card base.
I also gave the caterpillar some sparkle with my pearlescent chalk. This picture shows the sparkliness... I'm really liking my new chalks! Click on the photo to enlarge.
