There's just something about these cute ladybugs that are irresistible! I created these cards for my Kickoff Party last month and I love how simple & sweet they turned out!
And, remember…although I didn't use them on this card, you can now purchase the coordinating Ladybug Dies as part of the Coordinated Product Release, going on now through March 31, 2020. Details here.
Background Basics—I started by texture embossing a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock with the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder. Talk about some texture! The deep ridges and valleys of this folder are indeed just like a sheet of corrugated cardboard!
TIP: I recommend lightly spritzing the cardstock with some water before running it through the machine to reduce tearing the paper. I didn't spritz, so you can see some of the breakage of the paper fibers.
Next, I tied some of the Daffodil Delight Metallic Baker's Twine around the textured layer. That twine comes in the Sale-a-Bration Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo Pack that you can earn for FREE with a $50 order. I mounted the layer onto a Melon Mambo card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Lovely Ladybug—I stamped the Little Ladybug image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes circle die-cut, then colored it in with Stampin' Blends Markers. I used Lovely Lipstick Dark for the wings, Smoky Slate Light for the body, Petal Pink Light for the face and Mango Melody Dark for the flower. I finished by adding some Wink of Stella glimmer to the wings and flower. After matting it onto a Black scallop circle die-cut with the Layering Circles Dies, I adhered the layers onto the card front with Tear & Tape.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Little Ladybug sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Stitched Shapes So Saffron circle and mounted it with more Tear & Tape. I adorned it with a single Champagne Rhinestone (or you can color a Basic Rhinestone with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Markers).
Two Cool—The the second card, I started with a Coastal Cabana Corrugated texture, tied with the Bermuda Bay Twine from the Combo Pack and mounted onto a Bermuda Bay card base.
I used the same Little Ladybug image and same basic layout, too, just changing up the colors a bit.
Ladybug—This time the ladybug is colored with Calypso Coral Blends markers with a Bermuda Bay flower. I also added a little Flirty Flamingo to its cheeks.
Finishing Touches—I tried out a different sentiment this time, stamped on Grapefruit Grove card stock, and topped it off with a Noble Peacock Rhinestone.
