I tried to stay away…honest I did. I love these bees. Tonight I made a simple birthday card. Enjoy!
I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I cut a piece of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (from Sale-A-Bration, free with $50 order) at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used the smooth edged Heart Punch from the Heart Punch Pack in the Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog.
I stamped the larger bee and the sentiment from the Honey Bee set in Momento Tuxedo Black on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock. I colored the bee with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and added Wink of Stella to his wings. I die cut the bee and the hive from a scrap of Crushed Curry Cardstock. I cut the sentiment close with scissors and used the Triple Banner Punch on the ends. I cut a few pieces of the hive off to adhere to the card front. To do that, I aligned the DSP with even borders and used a light pencil mark to indicate the edges where I wanted to place the hive cut outs. To adhere them, I placed a thin layer of liquid adhesive on my silicone mat and touched the back of the pieces to it, then added it to my card using the pencil marks as a guide. Once dry, I erased the pencil marks.
I adhered the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used a dimensional on the right wing of the bee to position him “hovering” over the heart and on the sentiment banner. I used liquid adhesive to add some “honey” to the comb (tweezers were handy) on the front and on a strip on the inside. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the “Happy Birthday to You” set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure which is free with a $50 purchase.Product List
