Honey Bee Thank You

Hi there!  While I’m happy to share my card today, I’m totally admitting that I missed the boat on the Honey Bee bundle.  I only recently purchased it, when I could have had it since January when it came out in the January-June mini catalog.  Why?!  This bundle is so much fun and now it’s retiring…way too soon if you ask me.

Honey Bee Bundle #153792

I’ve been trying to make up for lost time and have been having a great time creating with it now.

During Sale-a-bration, I earned some free products.  One of which was the coordinating DSP for this set.  It’s beautiful paper and that still didn’t convince me to purchase the set.  Again, why?!  Well, the DSP retired when Sale-a-bration ended so it’s no longer available.  So I created my own DSP based on a pattern in the collection.

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White thick cardstock card base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Crushed Curry cardstock – 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Basic Black cardstock – 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Whisper White cardstock – 5″ x 3 7/8″

Details

  • Custom-Made DSP…Using the flower stamp in the Honey Bee stamp set, I stamped a random pattern on the smaller Whisper White panel.  I used Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with the light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend.
  • I then glued the patterned paper, Basic Black and Crushed Curry layers together.
  • Before gluing these to the card front, I wrapped a piece of Black Baker’s Twine around twice and added a bow.  I created the bow separately and used a mini glue dot to adhere it. I guess that cheating…a little!

  • The banner was created using the Banner Triple Punch.  The white banner measures 1″.  However, I wanted a smaller border than the punch allowed for the black banner.  So I cut a piece of black cardstock to 1 1/4″ wide and aligned it evenly in the punch between the 1″ & 1 1/2″ marks.  This actually gives this punch additional versatility.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black ink.
  • Next I stamped the beehive in Crushed Curry ink and die cut.  This is popped on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • These little bees stole my heart.  I stamped and cut so many of these.  They’re colored with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.  I added Wink of Stella to the wings. I  popped them on the banner and beehive with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • I combined two sentiments from the (retiring) Daisy Delight stamp set to add to the inside of the card, along with a couple more cute little bees.
  • The envelope is simply embellished with a few more stamped and colored bees…so easy but such a nice finishing touch!

I mentioned that I wished I would have purchased this bundle sooner, as it’s now retiring in less than a month.  But I did earn the coordinating Designer Series Paper during Sale-a-bration.  So I created a few more customer Thank You cards using the same design but the DSP.  I also colored the DSP pattern.  Here you can see them side by side.
