Honeybees

 

The bees liked that I stamped them in Early Espresso Ink, rather than black, for a change. And, I appreciated how still they sat while I cut them with a Detailed Bee Die.  

We made the see-through flower and leaves with Poppy Moments Dies, using Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I used the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder on the leaves to contrast with the smooth Whisper White background.

 

To make the honeycomb, I used a Detailed Bees metal die as a stencil, and applied Daffodil Delight Ink with a Sponge Dauber. The bees thought my method was crazy, but they liked the way it turned out.

 

Do you see how the honeycomb resembles the shape on the right side of this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge?

 

Finally, I needed the word “honey,” which I made using the letters from the Hand-Lettered Prose Die Set. To make the letters “soft” like the honeycomb, I applied Daffodil Delight Ink to Thick Whisper White Cardstock with a Sponge Dauber. That area beneath the “y” is what I used for the flower’s center.

 

This card makes the bees happy, and I hope it does the same for the “Honey” who receives it.

 

I’m also sharing this card with Seize the Birthday for the stenciled honeycomb.
