DIY: Ladybug Birthday Birthday Card

January 30, 2011

Today is my boyfriend’s mom’s birthday – so of course a handmade card is in order!  
Andrew’s mom is a super creative person and I am sure she will love the card I made for her birthday.
Happy Birthday, Cindy!!!

I used Papertrey Ink products for most of the card. I love the Little Lady stamp set – it makes it so easy to stamp ladybugs of any and all colors. I used the rock ‘n’ roll technique to add some interest to the ladybug.
I also loved making a clear card, using PTI Clearly Creative Cardstock.  It’s a different medium for me and I love the way the layers look on the clear acetate paper.

Here’s a better look at all the layering. I love how the inside layers come through and add dimension from the front of the card.

And last but not least —
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how much I love to dress up an envelope!

Have a wonderful Sunday – and come back tomorrow for some more artsy fun!

Stamps: Little Lady, Make a Wish
