Little Ladybug - Ladybug Frame Card - Video Tutorial

I have such fun cards to share with you today! I really enjoyed making these :o)

Each card has a Little Ladybug frame ... they are just adorable! I love this sentiment with the Ladybug image used too ... so cute!

Now, this wasn't my first attempt! Or my second! I wasn't sure how I wanted the space in the centre of the frame layered, so didn't know what size frame to create initially. But after a little bit of playing ... almost a day ... this is what I came up with. 

I did use my Stamp-a-ma-Jig initially (now retired) but I soon discovered that you could create the frame with the Stamparatus and this is how I do it in the Video (below).

I wasn't sure about the colouring of the Ladybugs. Most people seem to leave the faces white - but that doesn't look quite right to me, so I coloured them using the Dark Smoky Slate Blends alcohol marker.

The Flower on this card was coloured with the Daffodil Delight Blends markers. I couldn't use them for the card in the Video because mine are almost out and I haven't re-ordered yet, so I chose Mango Melody instead.

This is the card I created in the Video. The background paper for both cards comes from the Regals 6" paper stack and it's in Real Red to match the Ladybugs.

The card layout is very simple - I didn't think you needed much else with this cute frame :o)

Here is the Video ...
