Cute As A Bug

All of the cards that I have made have been for my personal enjoyment of making with the hopes of giving it to someone at some point. This week I finally got the chance to make and give not one but two cards away. My mother-in-law asked if I would make a card for the baby shower we would be attending this weekend so I of course could not turn down a chance to use my cricut. I needed to make a card to go along with my gift anyway so it gave me a little extra time in my craft room. I came up with 2 different designs and I love them both. 


The mother-to-be has chosen a Ladybug theme for her baby girls room so I wanted to try to use them in some way in the cards.










      This is the card my mother-in-law gave with her knitted blanket and baby sweater that she made. They turned out so adorable, she did an amazing job. I wish I had pictures to show you. She wanted a ladybug and the phrase "Cute As A Bug" on the card so this is what I came up with.

Recipe
Pink Cardstock (Card Base)
Light Green Cardstock
Ladybug (CAC)
Ribbon by Ribbon Trends











    This is the card that I gave with for my gift.  I found this really cute paper at Hobby Lobby by Paper Studio that had some ladybugs on it so I wanted to use that for sure.

Recipe
Light Green Cardstock(Card Base)
Yellow Cardstock (Layer)
Patterned Paper by Doodlebug Design Inc.
"Baby" phrase from Simply Sweet Cartridge
Ladybug cut from CAC
Ribbon by Ribbon Trends
Buttons

  1. Tooo cute. I really love the ladybug inside the card. Such a nice touch. I tend not to give my cards away either. Seems I made far more than I have reasons, lol.
