The Little Ladybug Stamp Set, is oh so cute! And, one of the ladybugs is featured on today’s “fun fold” birthday card.
If you missed out on this adorable stamp set, you just might be the winner of my random drawing! Everyone who orders a minimum of $100.00 April 22-April 30 will be entered, and I’ll announce the winner May 1!
I began today’s card by cutting Thick Whisper White Cardstock in half, lengthwise at 4 1/4″. This will give you two card bases. Then, I scored each end at 2 3/4″, folding them to meet in the middle. This is called a “Gate Fold,” and I love it because of its simplicity.
Next, I embossed the card front with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder, one side at a time, and my “Gate Fold” was ready to decorate.
First, I stamped the ladybug in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and colored her with Stampin’ Blends. The colors are named in my Product List below.
The rainbow colored die-cuts (Ornate Borders Dies) were on my work table, because I’ve been having fun with the 2018-2020 retiring “In Colors.” The colors I used for the rainbow stamping are: Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, and Call Me Clover.
To complete the inside of my “Gate Fold” card, I used a stripe from Bird Ballad Designer Paper, topped with Whisper White Cardstock, cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. Then, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink that matches the “Hey Lady!” on the card front.
Also, I added some snipped some flowers from another rainbow, Ornate Borders die-cut.
The five retiring colors will be in demand, and there’s a limited supply. If you want ink, paper, pens, and embellishments in these colors, you need to order now while they are available.
