If you’re not ready for Valentine’s Day, how about making a ladybug card using this heart using the Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge. This sweet ladybug is great for Valentine’s Day, but it could be for other occasions too.
Paper Sizes for Ladybug Card
- Card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folded in half.
- Pink mat is 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Dotted Background is 5″ x 3 3/4″
- Striped paper is 5″ x 1 1/2″
I stuck with a simple card layout using three coordinating patterned papers. The papers are mainly pink with splashes of lime green, dark brown, and tan. The ribbon is bias tape from Stampin’ Up. I love how easy it is to work with. I was even able to tie a pretty decent looking knot with it.
For the cutie patootie ladybug, I cut the base in black. You will notice that there are two layers to the head. The one piece with the antennae is lime green, and the overlay piece is cut in pink. The hearts on the ladybug’s back and antennae are the perfect accents.
I added fruit punch Stickles to the hearts on the antennae and wiggly eyes. This love bug is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but she would also be perfect for a baby shower or kid’s birthday card.
The Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge is so much fun! All of the shapes are perfect for kids projects. All of the holidays and seasons are highlighted with lots of accessories for these great animals.
