#craftingnotcoding: The Ladybug "welcome baby" Card

As you all know I look for any excuse to go to Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames to die cut. This card can be made even if you do not have access to a die cutter, I'm just a tad bit OCD and wanted perfect circles. I made this for a friend's baby, but you can easily use it for a birthday.

What you need:

- black card base
- white layering sheet
- one black and one red large circle
- smaller black circle
mini punches
- red and black scrap paper
- foam stickers
- precision scissors
- glue
- double sided tape
- red pens
- paper trimmer
- twine (not pictured)

What to do:
1. Punch out 10-15 mini hearts in black. Cut the large red circle in half and glue on the mini hearts.
2. Using small drops of glue stick some twine onto the corner of white layering sheet (make sure this is trimmed down to be smaller than the card base) to make the antlers.
3. Punch out two black and two white mini circles (make sure the white ones are larger), stick them on the smaller black circle to create eyes.
4. Stick the circle with the eyes on the white sheet cover the ends of the twine.
5. Stick the large black circle, covering half of the small black circle.
6. Now stick the red pieces made in step 1, on the black circle.
7. Lastly attach the white sheet to the card base using foam dots. Add a sentiment inside and your set!

Happy Crafting!
