2 Peas In A Pod card

Lewie's Aunt and Uncle celebrate their 24th anniversary today!  They truly are two peas in a pod so a card stating that seemed fitting.

Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Just Because Cards, Don Juan
Cardstock paper in three colors [dark green, light green, cream]
Craft glue


Start by cutting out the base for the card using the Just Because Cards cartridge.  Cut one Peas in dark green that is 5 1/2 inches.  Next, cut out the scallop edge background using the same cartridge.  Cut one House in cream that is 5 1/2 inches.  Glue this to your dark green card base and let dry.  Meanwhile, cut one layer 1 Peas in dark green (5 1/2 in).  This will be the back of your peas.  To finish it, cut one layer 1 Peas-s that is light green (5 1/2 in).  Glue your top light green pea to your bottom dark green pea.  Once it is dry, cut off the third bottom pea, leaving you with two peas in your pod.  Next, cut out a word peas-s in light green (5 1/2 in).  Lastly, using the Don Jaun cartridge, cut out the number 2 and letters i n a p o d in dark green 3/4 inches.  Then just glue the remaining pieces (the pod, PEAS and your letters) to the front of the card.  On the inside I just wrote, Happy Anniversary!
