The paper for the ladybug are standard lady bug colors. The rest of the card can be any color you want. The base card weight needs to be al least 100 lb weight to support the gromet and the movement of this card.
Cutting the card
Cut the lady bug birthday card base and the cricut will do the writing. I used a white gel pen because I love the way it looks.
The flowers fill in because I used the circle draw graphic (and made my own in the SVG) which colors in the designs.
The font used is called Hard Candy and you can get it free at Dafont. I used this font because it fills in when drawn. A note about fill in fonts. If you use it in your own projects, DO NOT weld them after joining the letters. It ruins the fill in effect. I liked it so much that I created my own fill in fonts. Who wants to use the same font all the time? You can find out more about my fill in fonts here.
Assembling the Lady Bug Birthday Card
Once all the pieces are cut out, glue the dots on the “shell”. Line the card up with the holes matching and put a grommet through all three layers.
It will punch a hole through paper, plastic or leather and the Scraparatus does all the work for you.
I used it to set the grommet It can even cut the hole (but I put one in already). I used it all the time. It even has die sets that will cut out letters and small shapes. I have a few but don’t use them much except for holes. But the most impressive thing, in my opinion is setting grommets of any size.
If you don’t have one use a paper punch and tie a ribbon or put a brad in the hole.
And the Lady Bug Birthday card is done. As I said it fits in an A2 envelope.
Make sure that little lady know you remembered her birthday. Here is the link to the Monky Birthday Card
