Plus, let's zoom into this weekend with a giveaway! Read on for details...
Ladybugs are one of the very few bugs that I actually think are cute! Aside from ladybugs and butterflies, all other bugs fall into the creepy category for me. This card features an adorable ladybug created with the cute Bugs & Balloons stamp and die combo set.
I started with a top folding white card and cut a piece of the blue dotted patterned paper to 4 x 5-1/4 inches and glued that down. I next cut out a white piece of card stock to 4 x 5-1/4 and, using the Rolling Clouds die, cut off the top right corner. I adhered that to the dotted paper using foam tape. This created my 'cloudy sky'.
Next, I assembled my little ladybug. I cut the body out of the pink dotted paper and then I used the same circle die to cut the wings. After cutting the light pink circle out, I moved the die over to one side of the circle and cut again, creating the wing shape. I glued these to the body and added some white dots with my gel pin. I cut the head out of Poppyseed card stock and glued that to the body.
Next I cut out the swirly curlies, the greenery and the flowers. I stamped the sentiment from the Bugs and Balloons set onto the white cloud panel then added the ladybug and flowers with foam tape. I tucked the greenery and the light blue swirl underneath the ladybug with just a dab of glue. Last I added a few Doodlebug Sprinkles. I hope you have enjoyed learning how I created this card. (The ladybug would be really cute created in black and red too!)
