Ladybug embossed tag
Wishing for spring, I made a simple little ladybug tag today. I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cart to make the tag, then I used the Walk in My Garden cart to make the ladybug. I punched out some little hearts for the antennas and then used all kinds of ribbon to embellish it with. This My Mind's Eye paper is great because the glitter on it adds some sparkle, which of course I love! Tags are fun because they're so versatile - you can use them on gifts, cards, or scrapbook pages like I'm going to do with this one.
After I cut out the ladybug, I used scalloped scissors to cut around the red circle and then inked the red cardstock to make the dry embossed paper pop a little better. These are a few fun challenges I entered:
Erin Lee Creative wanted something with a destroyed technique.
Cooking with Cricut wanted an embossed project.
Fantabulous Cricut is looking for a project featuring your favorite season.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
