Happy Bee-lated Birthday Wishes

Good morning!

I know this isn't my usual time of day for blog posts but I have an appointment with the dentist before work this morning (euchhh!) so I have a little more time before I have to leave today.  So I thought I'd share a card I made last night.

When I saw the latest challenge at CASology had the cue card 'Bee', I knew straight away what I wanted to use.  A while ago I purchased some digis from Pink Petticoat, many of which I haven't yet had the chance to use, and one little set is called Buzzy Little Bees.

So here's what I did with it...

I printed off the digi (I decided on the 'bee-lated' image and sentiment, its always handy to have one of these!) and cut it out with an oval die.  I coloured the bee and flower with Promarkers and then added a touch of Wink of Stella to the bee's wings - yes, I've finally purchased the famous little pen and I love it!  I then picked out the red of the flower and cut some deep red cardstock with the co-ordinating scalloped oval die to frame the image.  Next I used a honeycomb embossing folder (I used the de-bossed side of the card) and cut away a section which I adhered to my base card at an angle, and then mounted the framed image over the top on 3D foam.

Materials used:
  • Digi Image: Pink Petticoat - Buzzy Little Bees
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Ovals and Classic Scalloped Ovals
  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up - Honeycomb
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and Wink of Stella - Clear
  • Cardstock: Neenah - Solar White, Bazzill Basics (red)

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley - Challenge 82 - Things with Wings
Crafty Catz - Challenge 232 - Embossing
Addicted to CAS - Challenge #39 - Texture
Craft Your Passion - Challenge 215 - Frame It

Right, must dash, not looking forward to this visit to the dentist at all!  Have a wonderful day x
