Cardmaking Joset Designs

Buzzing Birthday

August 28, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here on the blog today. The Bee dies set in the new Bugs and Butterflies collection is so adorable. I could not wait to play with it.


Cut and assemble the bee from the Bee die set. Cut and assemble the cake from the Party Time die set. Cut the honeycomb from Layered Honeybee die set. Cut one rectangle from white cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 3″ on the long side. Cut another rectangle from white cardstock measuring 3″ x 8″ and score at 4″ . Cut four rectangles from patterned cardstock two measuring 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ , 1 measuring 2 3/4″ x 4″, and 1 measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut the word “birthday” from Shakers die set out of white cardstock cardstock. Cut a spinner from black cardstock from the Tab 6 Planner essentials die set.

Use the honeycomb as a stencil and ink the honeycomb patterned cardstock that measures 2 3/4″ x 4″

Poke a hole at approximately 3/8″ in and 2″ up. Using a brad, adhere the spinner tab to the panel

Using the Bugs and Kisses stamp set, stamp buzzing by to say and the flying trail to one of the 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ stamp sets. For the buzzing by stamp, I cut off the word “Hi” but you can mask it off instead. I also added three dots to denote that the sentiment continues

Adhere the bee to the panel

Adhere the cake and the “Birthday” to the other panel that measures 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. Using the Pieces of Life 1 stamp set, stamp the word “happy”

Adhere the 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel to the inside of the card

Fold the scored 3″ x 8″ panel to the card making sure that the panel layer opens from the left

Adhere the panel with the bee to the folded panel

Open the folded layer and adhere the panel with the cake to the inside

Lay the card upside down and flat. Adhere the panel with the spinner to the 4 1/4″ x 8″ panel. Make sure that the spinner is to the left

Flip the card over and fold in the spinner flap

Fold in the bee flap and secure with the spinner and the card is complete
