This Lady Bug Birthday Card is simple to do. It fits in an A2 envelope because I hate making envelopes.
You will need:
- Heavy black cardstock for the base
- Red Cardstock scraps
- a grommet
- a grommet tool
Cutting the card
Cut the card base and the cricut will do the writing. I used a white gel pen because I love the way it looks. If you want to change what the card says that can easily be done before cutting.
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 was KG Hard Candy Striped which you can get free at dafont.com. A note about this font. If you use it in your own projects, DO NOT weld this font after joining the letters. It ruins the fill in effect.
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.
I used a wonderful tool called The Scraparatus by Karen Foster. I have the amazon link to get one right here.
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 card is done. As I said it fits in an A2 envelope.
Make sure that little lady know you remembered her birthday. Come back tomorrow for the little boy card. Here is the little boy card
