VeggieTales Card

This past Monday, my three year old had minor eye surgery.  He came out of it better than I expected, thank God!  I think it was harder on my husband and I with the anticipation of it all.  Anyway, we made up a goodie bag for him since he was so brave and of course I had to make him a card to go with it!

My boys like to watch VeggieTales movies and I am glad they like them!  They have such great messages about faith in them and are so fun for the kids to watch.  One of their favorite songs to sing from the movies is "God is Bigger than the Boogie Man".  It talks about being brave because everything we might be scared of is always smaller than God and God is on our side so nothing stands a chance against us.  So that is the long version of why I went with this card theme for my son's surgery! LOL!
The cucumber and tomato (AKA Larry and Bob) were SVG's from the Vegetables set at ScrappyDew.  They were super fast and easy to assemble but turned out adorable!  I also embossed the cucumber with a striped embossing folder to make it look a little more like Larry :)
The background is random sized circles adhered to white cardstock, then embossed with a really neat polka dot The Paper Studio brand embossing folder.
I added pop dots behind both the square and the vegetables for maximum dimension.  The best part of that was my son tipping the card sideways and asking what the little squares were that were behind the paper!  LOL!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
