Have a Bee-utiful Day

May 22, 2016


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.


Step 1:
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..

Step 2:
Cut Dotted Scallop Rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the largest die in the set.

Step 3:
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.)

Step 4:
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.

Step 5:
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.

Step 6:
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.

Step 7:
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.

Step 8:
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.

Step 10:
Cut Card Stand/Easel from 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Hope you enjoy this project!
