Beetles & Bugs: Magnifying Glass Punch Art

Today I'm sharing...a Beetles & Bugs Magnifying Glass Punch Art card.  

This creepy crawly stamp set reminds me of elementary school when we made bug displays. Did you ever do that?  I think handling a bug stamp is so much better than touching them in real life!  Of course, when you're dealing with bugs, you might need a magnifying glass.  So here you go...

 Lady Bug Hugs card

  1. Place (do not adhere yet) magnifying glass (see below for instructions) on 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock.  Make a visual note where you'd like to stamp a lady bug image through the "glass", as well as other places on the card.  Remove and stamp lady bugs (Beetles & Bugs stamp set) with Archival Basic Black ink (note: leave room for greeting too).  Color with Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.
  2. Adhere stamped/colored panel to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Read Red card base
  3. Adhere magnifying glass to card using Foam Adhesive Strips.
  4. Stamp letters of greeting on Whisper White Thick scraps using Labeler Alphabet stamp set and Real Red ink.  Cut each word out and adhere to card with Foam Adhesive Strips.
  5. Tie Whisper White Baker's Twine in a bow and adhere with Glue Dot.

Magnifying Glass Punch Art

  1. Die cut (2) Basic Black "circle frames" using Layering Circle Framelits (1-5/8" & 2-1/8") - die cut both dies at the same time, one inside the other. (You'll need two of these)
  2. Die cut Window Sheet using 2-1/8" Circle.  Adhere together sandwiched between both circle frames.
  3. Die cut Basic Black, the letter "I" using Large Letters Framelits.  Trim down to 1-3/4" and adhere behind frame.

I think this set would be great for lots of types of cards & scrapbook pages...for kids, teachers, get well and more.  The Labeler Alphabet stamp set lets you get creative for any occasion for sending cards! !
