Hi everyone! Amanda here with a SUPER fun slimline card to share with you today using the new Bee Happy die set. These guys are so fun and this die set is packed with lots of options to play around with too.
I started by cutting out all the pieces to my rainbow bees. The wings are cut from vellum and everything else from cardstock. Then I used liquid glue to adhere the cardstock pieces together. I added the wings with glue dots and then covered the glue dot up with a color coordinating gem. I absolutely LOVE how these turned out!
For my background, I cut a slimline stitched panel using the next-to-largest die in the Stitched Rectangle Slimline die set. Then I cut the honeycomb piece in Bee Happy three times. I arranged them in different ways and glued them together where they overlapped. This way I had one long piece of honeycomb for my background. I glued that down with liquid glue and then added some of the hexagon pieces that pop out of the frame inside random openings. Next, I splattered the panel with gold watercolor.
While I was doing that I thought it would be cool to paint some of the leftover hexagons with the same paint and insert those too. This turned out so cool. I couldn't love it more!
The die set also comes with a "Bee Happy" sentiment that is so punny and fun. I cut it from black cardstock three times and glued the layers together with liquid glue. I set it where I thought I wanted it to go while I decided the final placement of the bees. Once it was laid out, I glued the sentiment down with liquid glue.
Then I added my cute bees with foam squares one at a time...enjoying that sweet bee rainbow so much! Last, I added the stitched panel to a white card base with foam tape for even more dimension and interest.
