The card today is another using the Bee My Valentine Bundle. This time around is a little different regarding paper usage.
The Be Mine Designer Series Paper is the same paper as on the previous Bee Valentine. You can see that card HERE if you missed it earlier in the week. The special addition to this card is the sweet jar of Love. It was fussy cut from a piece of the DSP. There are jars with “honey”, “hug”, and the heart. I opted for the heart to match the Sweet Sorbet in the center DSP piece. The wonderful patterns in this pack of paper is perfect for any Spring cards, but especially to pair with this fun bee.
The card base is Daffodil Delight and is paired with the Basic White layer. That has the honeycomb stamp with Daffodil Delight Ink to create the background. The honeycomb pairs perfectly with the bee and the jar of Love.
The only stamps used are from the Bee My Valentine set. The fun sentiment makes me think of a Southern type statement! You cannot help but smile. I believe this would make a great Thank You card for someone as well. And of course the bee with the Bee Builder Punch is perfect for creating your own bee. He can be going in any direction and with a variety of facial expressions. Plus you get the bonus of the two hearts. The wings and antenna are made with two sizes of hearts. I can see myself using these hearts on all kinds of projects!
The sentiment layer is simply a strip of Basic White across the card. So I had to add some fun to that. Raising the bee and the little jar created some depth, but we must have bling! The Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers embellishments fill that need perfectly. And they have a kind of retro look to them. There are one on each end of the sentiment and then the yellow heart in the upper left corner. It sort of blends in with the honeycomb.
The card base of Daffodil Delight is 4 1/4 X 11, folded at 5 1/2. The Basic White layer is 3 7/8 X 5 1/8. And the DSP is 2 1/2 X 3 1/4. For the sentiment it is a strip of Basic White cut to 3 1/2 X 3/4. I used scraps for the bee and wings. Since these are on one punch. I suggest stamping and punching the bee, then stamp and punch each of the others.
