Beehive shaped Card

I adore shaped cards, so when my friend Cheryl and I were trying to come up with some cute card ideas I told her I would love a honeycomb shaped card, so she made that for me (Which I shared in post before this one)  but then she also made this adorbs one and sent to me to play with.... OMG!  I loved it as soon as I saw it!  So easy to put this one together!

Beehive Shaped Card file @

So I added a few extras like the twine flight trail.  She had a cute bee included with this file but I wanted to use my Cheery Lynn - "Tiny Things With Wings" Bee die-cut.  for the bee's...I cut the bottom layer in white and adhered the black cutout layer on top leaving the black eyes in because I thought it looked better in this case.  I colored in the wings and body with my spectrum noir markers on both bigger bees.  The smaller bee and heart are HOTP Dazzles(I used the same marker to color in the bee body). The sentiment stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas - Lil Bit Buggie set - Just Bee-Cause
The flowers, leaves and buttons were included with the card file.

For the inside:
I cut the inside layer from the card file out of White Card Stock which I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  for the Sentiment I stamped the You're So Sweet from HOTP Thank You! Stamp Set.... once on yellow cardstock that I used my SNC2 to cut around the shape leaving a small extended edge around the whole thing.  I stamped again on white card stock and used my SNC2 to cut that as well only this time I choose to cut a preloaded pattern and went with a Circle.  I was able to scan in the white stamped image and then size and move the circle exactly how I wanted it over the "SO" circle and then cut.... I love that Machine!!!  I then took my Spectrum Noir Markers to color in the SO Circle with colors matching up with the front of the card.  I also stamped a couple of flowers in Red Chalk ink with the from the same stamp set.  I added a dotted trail and placed another Bee Dazzle like on the front and again colored with my spectrum noir markers.

I of course made a fun matching envelope with my WRMK 123 Punch Board just with some yellow paperthat was similar to the front of the card and stamped it with the adorable Bee stamp from Craftin Desert Divas Lil Bit Buggie Stamp Set. 

I am entering into these fun challenges:

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been making.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
