Hello all. My little ladybug is doing a flyby today, a simple design which would be suitable for different occasions to. I have used the new pretty pastel 12×12″ papers which are absolutely gorgeous.
First cover the front of a top folding 5 x 5″ card blank. I wet glue the card blank itself then lay the paper on top starting one corner, then turn over and trim off the over hang.
Using a cloud edge die. die cut into a piece of white card at approximately 2.75″ or 7cm apart leaving a bit of card at the sides for folding. Fold one side where the die cut starts then lay the panel on the card blank about 3 or 4 mm from the edge then make a mark on the other side and fold. The panel need to be slightly wider than the card blank.
Trim the cloud panel edge flaps down to about 1/4″ or 5mm fold inwards then starting a one side glue the flap to the card front followed by the other, this will create a slight dome shape.
Die cut and build the ladybug, you can build the bug facing left, right or forwards whichever you like. Ink all the pieces to bring the character to life and add some detail with a white gel pen.
Add a sun shape poking out of the clouds, use a circle die 1.25″ or 2cm. Layer two together, ink around the edge and fix to the front.
Finish off with adding whatever sentiment you would like, here I have white heat embossed onto black card.
That’s my card for today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at creating you own flyby.
Happy crafting – Jackie x
