Ladybug, Ladybug Fly Away Home

Really reasonable Ribbon-Echo Park-Little Ladybug-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Hello, Friends!  If you're feeling the winter blues, I hope this little shaker card will elevate your mood.  Red, black and white is such a cheery color combo, and ladybugs always make me happy!  Throw in a shaker element, a pop of aqua gingham check, polka dot ribbons and a perky houndstooth bow, and I'm on the verge of giddy!

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Echo Park-Little Ladybug-Shaker Card

Polka dots and ladybugs are made for one another, so it was an easy choice to add 3/8" Black Swiss Satin Dots Ribbon to the top and bottom of this 5" x 7" shaker card.  Use 1/4" Scor-Tape to secure the ribbon to your card for a quick and easy design solution.  To keep things neat and tidy, let the ends of the Scor-Tape and ribbon extend beyond the sides, then wrap them around the back of the card front panel before you adhere it to the card base.

Black Houndstooth Ribbon ties such beautiful bows.  It's soft and supple, so it's easy to work with, and the loops drape in such a pretty way.  It's one of my favorite ribbons, and I wish it came in every color of the rainbow!

Peppermint Baker's Twine helps hold the flap page inside the card in place.  Simply wrap the twine around the flap page liner before you adhere it to the card base.  Then tie a bow and you're all set!

Here's a peek behind the flap page.  

And here's a peek at the goodies inside the pocket.  I've added a little Baker's Twine hanger to the cute magnet so that it can either hang on the fridge or on a doorknob.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
