This isn’t just any old card topper; it’s a work of art that combines slapstick humor with a dash of the great outdoors, flipped on its head. The star? A hilariously panicked mosquito with eyes so bulgy they could almost pop off the card, snagged by a grinning, mischievous Venus flytrap that’s definitely not on the usual menu.

The pun is just as juicy as our mosquito’s predicament: “Caught in a STICKY SITUATION!” It’s a playful poke at those times we’ve all been a bit tangled up in life’s unexpected moments. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t crack a smile at this bug’s little debacle?

Sending this card is like sending a dose of sunshine and silliness – a reminder not to take life too seriously. Your loved ones, friends, and even that distant acquaintance you’ve been meaning to reconnect with will be buzzing with laughter when they peel open the envelope.

But wait, there’s more! Turn this into your crafty crusade. Printing and assembling these cards is as fun as finding a hidden trail during a summer hike. They make superb gifts, too! Imagine gifting a set to a friend – each card a promise of a smile and a nudge to write back.

Get your printers ready, unleash your inner craftsperson, and let’s send some buzz-worthy joy across the world. It’s time to make someone’s day with a mosquito caught in a moment of comic peril – because, let’s be honest, who can resist a laugh?

Stay crafty and keep buzzing!

Cutting Your A2 Card Topper

  1. Materials Needed:
    • A sharp pair of scissors or a paper trimmer
    • A ruler
  2. Cutting:
    • Use the ruler to measure and mark the cutting lines, following the border of the card topper design.
    • With the scissors or paper trimmer, carefully cut along the marked lines.

Adhering the Topper to the Card

  1. Materials Needed:
    • Blank A2-sized greeting cards (4.25″ x 5.5″)
    • Double-sided tape or glue stick
    • Bone folder or a flat, smooth tool (optional)

    • Align the topper with the front of the blank card carefully.
    • Press down firmly from the center towards the edges. For best results, use a bone folder or a similar tool to smooth out any bubbles and to make sure the topper is well adhered without damaging the card or the design.

Final Touches

  • Inspect: After adhering, inspect the card for any edges that may need additional pressure or adhesive.
  • Dry: If using glue, allow sufficient time to dry before handling further.


  • Always perform a test print on regular paper to ensure the design aligns with your expectations.
  • For an extra professional touch, consider using a scoring board to create a clean fold on handmade cards.
  • Customize the card by adding additional decorations such as rhinestones, ribbons, or personal messages.
