After seeing the sketch below over at Sunday Stamps, I decided to give it a try!
I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock and added a layer on top of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder. Then I cut three strips of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (this is a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 purchase) and punched each end using the Banner Triple Punch. Before adhering the Whisper White panel down with Stampin’ Dimensionals ( I used a LOT), I wrapped our Solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card three times and tied a bow.
The sentiment is from the stamp set, Honey Bee, and was stamped in Memento Ink. It was cut out using a 2″ Circle Punch and then adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that was cut using the Starburst Punch. The cute little bee is also from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (FREE paper) and was cut out with the smaller bee in the Detailed Bee Dies. When you purchase the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bee Dies together, using the special bundle item number, you’ll save 10%!
To finish the card, I used a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to color in the stripes of the bee.
