Paper Piecing LadyBird Card – Stampin’ Up!

LadyBird-DoLallyCrafts-StampinUp-SideWell this is another card that has been floating around in my head for ages.  In fact this one has been in my head on and off for the last few years.

I originally envisioned it as a hidden party invitation, where the wings spread apart and the party details were hidden inside, but trying to work out the head/layers/hinge set up always had me dithering about it.

But I managed to pull it all together on a rather dingy day, today.

The head is in three layers as I am totally OCD about hiding all the prongs/punch throughs, on brads, especially if there’s a chance a child could get their hands on it.

I didn’t have any Real Red cardstock on hand, but I did have some Jupiter Metallic Red from Peterkin on hand for the base of the LadyBird.  I punched out a couple of dozen circles from Basic Black cardstock and coated each circle in Wink of Stella.  I cut out three circles from the Jupiter cardstock.  The split circle on the top is actually two half circles that were cut a little further than half of the circle, so it forms a barely discernible oval shape.  I then traced around the two half circles to create a base that matched in shape. (Not sure if that made sense? LOL)

The head is three separate Basic Black circles, and I used four mini silver brads: two to affix the head and semi circles together, and another two for the eyes.
