Cardmaking Everyday Essentials Uncategorized

This “Bee”! has a fancy folded card.

June 21, 2023

Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. Today I wanted to feature a super cool fun folded card using Anette’s Greens Bee and flower die from her Everyday Elements. So grab a coffee and let me walk you through how to create this card.

Out of your favorite card stock cut out your Bee, and “Thanks” word. Ink your edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and assemble your Bee and word quote.

Out of the designer paper of your choice (I used Bee Happy by Echo Park) I cut out the green stem and flower heads, ink and assemble.

Using a heavy white card stock cut your base 5 1/2 x 8 1/4. Score along the 8 1/4 side @ 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ and 7 1/4″ , next at the red lines cut as per above.

Next fold up your score lines, and pop out your folds as per picture below.

After you have your card folded, you will want to cut your front cover strips.

Cut-two black strips of card stock 1 x 4″ and two strips of designer paper @ 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ (Top and bottom)

Cut-two black strip 1 3/8″ x 4 and one strip of designer paper @ 1 1/4″ x 4 7/8″ (Middle piece)

Cut-two black strips the side of the card base 1 x 5 3/8″ and two strips of designer paper at 7/8″ x 5 1/4, ink and assemble as per picture above.

Next, using the Everyday Elements Postage Stamps, cut out a large postage die using black card stock and a yellow mat from the coordinating designer paper.

I attached my flower, and added some black colored sisal underneath the pop-dotted Bee. Add your word and speckle using heavy white acrylic paint.

Thank you for joining me with todays blog post, have a wonderful day!

    Absolutely darling! Thank you for the instructions! Looking at this card I would never guess it was a pop up! A SURPRISE! I thought it was adorable as a flat card, but extra glorious as a pop up! Great work! Thank you!
