Hello, Crafty Friends.
It’s Jacky here today. I’m very excited to show you this project using brand new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs: Honeycomb, Bee, and Dotted Scallop Rectangle. I also used one of the new clear stamp sets, Bee Sentiments.
Cut a Sunfower Soft Finish Cardstock measuring 4.5″ x 11.5″, score at 5.75″ and fold in half for the top-fold card base..
Cut Dotted Scallop Rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the largest die in the set.
Using the fourth largest Fitted Circle die, cut a hole in Dotted Scallop Rectangle, centered toward the top. (Refer to photo for position of this opening.)
Cut 2 Honeycomb pieces from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Overlap and glue together to create a honeycomb big enough to fill the open circle. Using Clear Double Sided Tape, adhere the honeycomb to the back of the opening. Attach the rectangle to the card front.
For the bees: Cut 2 solid bee bodies from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock, 2 bee overlays from Black Velvet Adhesive sheet, and 4 wings from White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Assemble bees.
For the sentiment, cut a 2 1/8″ x 1″rectangle from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock and a 2″ x 7/8″ rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use black ink to stamp ‘Have a Bee-utiful Day’ onto white rectangle. Adhere stamped rectangle onto Sunflower rectangle.
Die cut a ribbon strip from Black Velvet Adhesive sheet. Cut it in half, trim away a small piece so it will fit on the card as shown.
Assemble card: Adhere sentiment over the cut ends of the ribbon strip. Position and adhere the bees over the Honeycomb. Option: Add dimension beneath bees and/or sentiment with 3D foam tape.
Cut Card Stand/Easel from 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Hope you enjoy this project!
