Hi everyone! it is Thursday again so Sylvia is here for you on the blog. Have you seen the latest release from Joset, Bugs & Butterflies? It is a really fun release with lots of insects and an additional stampset as well. I made this fun card with it, so let’s grab your supplies and get started.
First: using white cardstock diecut the full page of PE 46 (day by day) set no 1913 and cut it straight in the middle. I used the bottom half that has the 9 windows and saved the other half for an other project.
Step 2 Diecut the corresponding mats (also in the same dieset) once in black, twice in yellow. We need a full yellow set for the inside of the windows and alternate the black and yellow ones on the outside of the windows.
Step 3: diecut the parts of the bee in black and yellow as shown in the photo, diecut the wings in vellum and use ink of your choice on the honey pot. Assemble the bee and the honeypot.
Step 4: layout your yellow mats that will go on the inside of the windows very close together, so that you can stamp on them. I wanted the dash line to continue on multiple rectangles, so I layed them very close to each other and stamped them all at once. Stamp the bees on another square or rectangle and a nice sentiment on another.
Step 5: Cut a piece of black cardstock of 12 x 6 inch and make a top fold for the base of the card. Glue the white window part on top, glue the stamped yellow mats on the inside, so that you can see them when you open a window. Glue the black and yellow mats alternately on the outside of the windows and adhere the honeypot on the largest black square.
Step 6: cut 2 banners from set 1329 (stitched fishtail banner), one in white, one in yellow and stamp them with a sentiment of your choice. Adhere them on the inside of the card, slightly shifted. Adhere the bee on top of them.
I hope you enjoyced my busy (buzzzzzzzy…) card. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, I’d be happy to help you.
