Ladybug Wish Come True

I don’t enjoy bugs crawling on me, but there is a soft spot in my heart (and on my fingers) for ladybugs. They are just the friendliest little creatures, so I don’t mind walking them to the door (if they’ve found their way inside) and giving them a lift to the nearest plant outside. I may even talk to them and tell them how pretty they are.

This little ladybug is adorable on a card:

Here’s a tutorial to get started, and of course, all the supplies can be found in my Stampin’ store!

So Loved, Ladybug

Crafting can be so simple: Stamps, ink, card stock…and a punch!

This card took me less than 15 minutes to make, from start to finish.

Paper pieces you’ll need:

  • Magenta Madness card stock base 4-1/4′ x 8-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″, plus a 4″ x 2-1/2″ for top
  • Basic Black card stock 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
  • 2 pieces of Basic White card stock 3-3/4″ x 2-1/4″ to stamp on, plus 5-1/4″ x 4″ for inside card, plus a scrap to stamp the ladybug on.
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (polka dot) 2-1/2″ x 4″

HOT TIP: Magenta Madness is retiring, so order extra card stock and ink pad refill TODAY!!
