The Hello Ladybug bundle with the Ladybug Builder Punch is one is one of my favorites from the Jan-June Mini catalog. I love the ease of a punch. These ladybugs are a breeze to make. And we are using the Tailor Made Tags Dies! They are back in the online store! Hurray! Here's my card for today.
I love this card so much! It begins with Thick Basic White cut to 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. Cut 3/4 inch off of the front of the card. I think we'll go ahead and make the inside of the card first. The black and white stripe paper comes from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper. You'll need a piece that is one inch by 4 1/4 inches. Glue to flush to the bottom of the inside of the card. Add a 1/4 inch strip of Blushing Bride card stock butting up to the paper. Trim to the correct length.
Add some of the dots here and there. They are so cute!
For the front of the card, there is a 1/4 inch strip of Garden Green card stock that goes through the middle of the card vertically. I use my Grid Paper to help find the middle and make sure the strip is straight.
The body of the ladybug is punched from the dotted paper from the Pattern Party Host DSP. Turn the punch upside down and notice the body of the ladybug. Bring the paper in from that side to save on paper. We'll be making two ladybugs. The wings are punched from Blushing Bride card stock. Each ladybug needs one set of wings. Feed the paper into the stamp from the side that has the wings. When punching multiples, you will need to clean the extra paper out of the punch each time. Use the Classic Matte Dots to add the spots on the wings. Add the wings with glue dots toward the top and dimenstionals near the bottom of the wings. Note: there is a stamp to make these dots on the wings if you do not want to pay extra postage. The matte dots are cuter. Wink of Stella helps the stamped ones.
The wings become leaves when punched from Garden Green paper. You'll need to punch 5 of them. Cut one set apart and share between the other ladybugs. Add the leaves to the back of the ladybug. Glue all to the card so that the leaves look like part of the plant.
Use the smallest tag from the Tailored Made Tags Dies. Cut from from Basic Black and one from Basic White. The stamps are from the Hello Ladybug stamp set. Add the tags using dimensionals.
Stamp black dots in various places over the card.
Add a Black & White Gingham Ribbon bow with a glue dot to the tags.
Be sure to mail this card to a friend. You will make their day!
