Seeing Red with Adorable Ladybug Card
Feb 5, 2024
hello ladybug from stampin' up! red card with sending hugs sentiment and a ladybug accent

Not all red cards are about Valentines Day this week! Hello Ladybug is a Stampin’ Up! stamp set and coordinating punch that scream RED (at least to me!) And, it actually makes a perfect Valentines Day card should you want it to, especially when sending greetings to friends. A hug is good for any day of the year, right?

I love the simplicity of this card – the red-on-red stamping in the background really pop. And I know the ladybug isn’t quite right – the spots are usually black – no one will notice and it blends to make a perfectly sweet card.

Here’s a quick tutorial to make this card, or a dozen!
