Ladybug Birthday Card


Hello everyone!  Greta here with a card I hope inspires you to join our January challenge–NEW.  I’ve used a stamp, stencil & technique for the first time.  I knew stencils could be used to emboss & finally got around to trying it.  My Big Shot sandwich was Tab 1, embossing pad, cutting plate, stencil, cardstock, embossing pad, cutting plate. Worked great my first try!  Aren’t these funky squares fun?!  The little ladybug is stamped in Neon Red & Wink Of Stella is brushed on the wings.  I used a craft knife to cut out an area for my sentiment which is heat embossed. The panel is mounted with foam tape & little black dots or pearls finish it off.  Pretty flat card for mailing which is always a plus.  This is a good time to use a technique you’ve been wanting to try & enter our challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.

The STORE has lots of sale items right now including the Neon Red ink pad & lots of stamp sets. You can use my discount code, GRETA15, to get 15% off your $25 minimum purchase.
