Tutorial – Oh to Bee Happy


I began by making a matt for the card, slightly smaller than 6 x 6. I inked the edges in mustard ink. I then took a piece of patterned paper from the IndigoBlu kit and trimmed it slightly smaller than my card matt. I again inked the edges before attaching it to my matt.

Once attached I took the number stamp from the kit and stamped around the patterned paper with black ink. I then took the dotty stamp from the kit and did the same. Once dry, I stamped the honey comb stamp randomly in any gaps.

Next I cut a honeycomb and bee design in cream cardstock with my silhouette die cutting machine, using a purchased design.  I coloured the honeycomb design in mustard. I also coloured the bee in with s black sharpie.

Once dry. I drew around the bee into some white paper to make a matt for underneath the bee. I cut it out and glued it to the underside of the bee.

I then masked of the wings and used the text stamp from the IngigoBlu kit and black ink over the top of the wings.

Once the ink was dry, I used a Nuvo glitter ink pen in gold to add some sparkle to the wings. I used the wee bee die from the kit to make another 2 bees and added white stamped/inked wings to them so they matched the large bee. I added gold to their wings too.

I took some of the hexagons from the die cut and coloured them in with black and mustard ink. I used the dotty stamp again to add texture before randomly adding them back into the honeycomb frame with foam pads

To finish I cut a Bee Happy sentiment from the patterned paper, matted it in cream to match the card and added it to the card on foam pads.

I hope you like this simple but very pretty card.
