This is a card I created last summer as a "just because" card to send to the family! It is one of my favorite cards so I borrowerd it from my mother-in-law recently to take photos and post it on my blog to share with all of you!!!
My card base is a half sheet of Basic Black cardstock folded in half. Next I cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Yoyo Yellow cardstock and embossed it using my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I wrapped 1" Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon around this layer and taped the ends down on the back side before attaching to the card base.
The shadow layer is a piece of Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock. The image was stamped on Whisper White in Basic Black using the Just Buzzin' By stamp set and colored in using Stampin Write markers. Using the Creative Memories Cutting System I cut out a circle and layered the image on to a slightly larger circle cut from Basic Black cardstock then attached it to the card base using mounting tape.
The bees were stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White using the same stamp set, cut out and colored using Stampin Write markers as well. Using a 2-Way Glue Pen I highlighted the bees and bee hive with some matching yellow glitter. I then added a bee on each side of the bee hive. To further embellish the card I layered paper flowers and added a Clear Ripple Flower accent in the center.
Thanks for buzzin' by and hope you have a great day!
