Card details

  • Cut a top-folding A2 card base.
  • Cut a piece of of grey card stock 1/8” smaller.
  • Use the Natural Granite stamp with the Delicata ink and stamp on a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of white card stock.
  • Cut this panel with a hexagon cover plate.
  • Select a few different pieces of the patterned paper and die-cut with the same die.
  • Using the die-cut pieces, lay out a hexagon pattern you are happy with. I used the Golden Glitz ink to color the plain white hexagons. I adhered some of the other pieces for dimension. Glue these and all of the others in place.
  • Stamp the sentiment on to a die-cut hexagon with Raven Hybrid Ink, add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Use the Natural Granite stamp and the gold ink and stamp over the die-cut hexagon.
  • Stamp the bees with Raven Hybrid Ink, add clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Die-cut the bees. color the bee bodies with alcohol markers.
  • Glue the inlaid hexagon panel to the grey card stock. Using double sided adhesive tape attach to card base.
  • Add foam tape to the back of the sentiment and adhere to the card. Add a piece of foam to the end of the bees and a bit of glue to the top and attach.
  • Add a few gems and the card is finished.
