5  Minute Monday ~ Hello Ladybug

Today our 5 Minute Monday features the "Hello Ladybug Bundle".  This cute and playful set comes with a punch for the ladybug. I love punches! They make paper crafting  so quick and easy!

The stamp set is just adorable! I've created a few cards with this bundle already, and there are still many more in my mind space. 

I just want to take a minute and remind everyone that Sale a-bration is almost over.  Only 7 days left to cash in on Free Product!

Here's how it works ~ 
We'll use the "Hello Ladybug Bundle" as an example for this scenario.

Hello Ladybug Bundle - $44.00 ( CAD )
Regals Cardstock ( a variety of colors for card bases ) $12.25 (CAD)
Matte Black Dots $9.50 (CAD)
Total: $65.75 (CAD)
Each $60 order is entitled to a "free choice" from the Sale a-bration brochure. 

Daffodil Afternoon is just one of the Sale a-bration choices. It would coordinate well with the Ladybug bundle.

On with today's 5 Minute Card~
Isn't it cute?
Here's how you can make your own ~ 
( if you don't have "hello ladybug" bundle, you can use something you already have )
Card cutting measurements & Instructions:
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 
Score @ 4 1/4 
DSP: 51/4 x 4
Basic White: 5 1/4 x 4
Scrap of Basic White to stamp sentiment
Circle cut from Vellum ( or basic white cardstock )
Scrap of card base color for stamping leaf 
Scrap of Real Red for Ladybug wings
Scrap of Black for Ladybug
Black Matte Dots ( for ladybug eyes )

Cut & Score Card Base. Cut the dsp layer and the inside card layer. Stamp inside layer as desired and attach to inside of card.
  Attach DSP layer to front of card base.  Stamp the leaf from the stamp set and fussy cut ( it's pretty painless ). Attach to card front.  
Punch out Ladybug pieces. Using the little dots from the set, stamp the dots on the wings. Attach wings using dimensionals to the ladybug body.  
Using glue in the center of the vellum circle adhere it to the card front. Using dimensionals attach the ladybug to the vellum circle. 
Stamp a sentiment and attach to front of card as pictured.
Place Matte Dots for Ladybug eyes.

And just like that...
An adorable card to send off to someone you love! 
I made a similar card using this basic layout.  

For both cards I used a sentiment set from Sale a-bration called "Special Moments", it is available free when you purchase $120. (CAD) in product. I use this stamp set a lot. It has greetings and sentiments for so many occasions! 

Does a ladybug have to be red?
Let's think about that..
