Last year my Niece Sophia turned 2. For her birthday, I created a very simple and cute little card for her. Even though Sophia is far from simple, she is actually very complex, I thought this card idea was so stinkin adorable, I just had to make it. I based the whole idea around a lady bug that I drew on a plain, round, white piece of paper. I then created the petals with a circle cut out of the middle and colored them with a shimmery pink pen. Always sticking to my great layer technique, I created a pink square card and layered white and green on top. I then glued the lady bug circle and petals to the card with some cardboard underneath to create a 3-d effect. I then wrote “Happy Birthday Little Lady”, basically referring to the lady bug. Using a see-through vellum type paper, I added one single leaf to the flower.
On the inside, I simply drew a few lady bugs and glued punched shapes onto the inside of the card. I just loved the simplicity of this card, and how cute it looked, and I think Sophia did too! Even though she was two 🙂
