I was shopping during the week and saw a super cute singlet that reminded me of a gorgeous friend of mine.
And of course, a super cute spontaneous present needs a matching handmade card.
It’s been a while since I’ve made anything using punch art – so this was fun!
The overall card design was inspired by the current Freshly Made Sketch.
It should have finished last week – but a technical glitch means they’ve kept it open – lucky for me!
Red, white & black is always a great colour combination.
I added in a touch of silver to brighten it up.
The bugs are made using the 3/4″ circle punch, shapes from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch & the small leaf shape from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.
Make your own ladybug:
Antenna – small leaf with all but top circle cut away from the stem
Head – largest circle from Cookie Cutter
Body (top) – 3/4″ circle cut in half & separated slightly
Body (bottom) – 3/4″ circle trimmed at top edge so it’s not visible
Dots – smallest circle from Cookie Cutter
Here’s another little bug hanging out on the inside…
And here’s a picture of the card with the inspirational gift…
In a week filled with some bad news stories & terrible world events, let’s flood our personal spheres with kindness!
Send a pretty card, help someone out & smile often. Bring out your best!!!
