Ladybird (my own design) A5 landscape Congratulatons card - Day 63 of my 366 day challenge


Ladybird (my own design) A5 landscape Congratulatons card - 
Day 63 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So, this is my first new card using my original ladybird design. i think this is a fun and cheerful one and here is how I made it.

Ladybird (my own design) A5 landscape Congratulatons card
First of all, I printed off my design on to white, thin cardstock and coloured the border in red and yellow, using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I then stuck it to a black scalloped edged mat (this is American Craft cardstock which I cut out using my Brother Scan n Cut.

I then glued it to the left hand side of the A5 linen card (tent fold style) and added some Black Crystal drops from Nuvo (Tonic Studios) - 5 on the bottom left hand and 3 on the right hand corners.

I cut a strip of hessian the length of the card and glued it using my Tonic Hot glue gun. I then added 3 small heart pink buttons at regular intervals.

For the insert, I designed it in CAP2 and took it into Microsoft Publisher and added the torn paper frame and printed it out.and stuck it to the inside of the card.
