After doing my circle card I created for Beate's weekend sketch challenge yesterday, I got to thinking about other things I could create with circles. I have seen a few ladybugs cards using this idea floating around on SCS and maybe even other places as well, so I decided I would give it a try too.
This is how I created my ladybug:
1 x 4 inch red circle
2 x 4 inch black circles
2 x 2 1/4 inch black circles
1 x 3 1/2 inch white circle
1 x 1/4 inch strip of black card
I attached one of the 2 inch black circles to the back of one of the 4 inch black circles. I then took the 1/4 inch strip of black card, bent it into a "V" shape and attach it to the back of the "head", trimming it as desired. Attach the second 2 inch black circle so the antenna are sandwiched between the 2 head pieces.
Layer the white circle over the front of the black circle body and decorate how you wish.
Cut the red circle in half and decorate as desired - I used a circle shape from Papertrey's "Butterfly Wishes" set. I also sponged around the edges of the red with black ink. Position the wings onto the body and use a black brad on either wing to attach to the body. I attached my brads through the centre of one of the circles I stamped on each wing.
This was pretty easy to do and you just spread the ladybugs wings to reveal the message.
