Lady Bug, Lady Bug fly away home

Made these cute little lady bug pocket cards today. I have included instructions, but unfortunately I loaded them from the bottom up by mistake. So scroll down to page one and
then scroll up one frame at a time. Sorry about that!
Finished card. Scroll down to the bottom now to start instructions.

Using a finger dauber, or a sponge, dab embossing ink to each spot on the body and
using black sparkly embossing powder, head emboss. Do the same to the two circles
on the antlers.

Glue small circles onto the embossed top of body as shown
Glue the antlers to the head as shown
Glue the head to the white cardstock as shown
Stamp white cardstock
Glue upper body part to lower body part. I have highlighted in white where to
glue so you can slide the head with message into pocket.

Glue half oval onto unembossed bottom portion of body as shown
Glue two small circles to each half of small black strip as shown

Run one of the red circles through the cuddlebug embossing folder of your choice (Optional)
Cut a triangle out of the bottom portion of the two red circles
Cut the oval in half (you only need one half for each card)
Cut the small black cardstock strip in half
Trim upper corners of white cardstock

What you need to make this card.
2 - red cardstock circles 4 3/8. I used the biggest circle on the coluzzle.
1 - 1 3/4 circle cut from black cardstock with punch or third cut on the circle coluzzle
1 - oval cut from black cardstock I used the 4th cut on the colluzzle oval. It's approximately
2 3/4x2 1/8
12 punched black cardstock 3/4 inch circles
1 piece of white cardstock 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
1 piece of black cardstock 3/8x 1 1/4 or use the stampin up word line punch
