Pop it Ups

Pop it Up Wednesday with Caz – Honey Bear

June 29, 2016

Hi Crafting Friends,  its Caz here and I am back with another Pop it up Wednesday and with summer time now arrived (someone ought to tell the weather that) I wanted to make a sunny, bright card and I decided on a Ring Accordion card with some flowery papers.

Accordions are real WOW cards and fold totally flat to slip into a regular envelope.

First off I cut all the pieces I needed for the album.  With the Ring Accordion, as with all of them you choose how many pages you want and I went with 3.

I choose to make one of the pages from Acetate.  I cut 4 of the patterned paper and stuck this on top of the yellow card to give it more stability.  I used the pink card edges on the acetate page and cut 8 of these.


Below you can see the pages assembled.  I did add two further green circles to the design.  The patterned paper is on either side of the yellow card.

Next I got to work on making a bee hive using Karen’s Basket Props. I also used the flies from the Frog set to decorate into bees.  Using ink pads to add color on the white Soft Finish cardstock.


I also used the flies from the Frog set and used them as bees.  Added pencil detail for the grass.


I then I set about make “Honey” the bear.

Card was assembled and I used Josets Bee die for the last page. Which you can see on the first photo.

And here is what I used to create this card.

    Caz I love the way you came up with the bee hive! And coloured those flies to become bees? Clever! Fun, summery card.
