2015-11-04; Invasion of the Asian Beetles


Asian beetles are everywhere the last few days. I have even found a few in my basement craft space. They are not red like ladybugs, but a rust color, which is what my shaped card for today is.

I made two different sizes. The smaller one is 4.5″ and the larger 5″ and were cut from the cartridge Doodle Charms. I kept looking for the layer for the antenna, but there was none. Well, that didn’t seem right so I looked at a real beetle, and they don’t have any. I guess these are anatomically correct.

It’s always easier to see the details if I just take a photo of one of the cards so here you go. The card looked really plain until I added texture. I used two different embossing folders. One on the black and another on the rust layers.

The card still looked a wee-bit plain so I added glitter glue, a sentiment and some rummage sale flowers.

I opened the card so you could see the inside. You can see where I put the hinge so the card would open. It is just a score on the back panel then glued together. Easy, and you don’t need special software to make it work. I kept the inside pretty plain so I’d have room to write. I lined it with matted circles and stamped the sentiment.

And one more look at these little invaders before you go on about your day.

Thanks for stopping by…and as for these little beetles, they are about to fly away to a couple of stamping friends.
