Step It Up: Bee Mine

Need fun ideas for your project? Try making these cards using the Bee My Valentine Bundle. Keep your card simple with the Beginner design or “step it up” by making the Avid card!

BEGINNER

To make this card, we stamped the flower images using Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green. Then we stamped the bee body image on Lemon Lolly Cardstock and the wings and antennae on Basic White Cardstock. We punched out all the bee parts using the Bee Builder Punch and adhered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. We adhered the bee to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished the card with our sentiment.

CASUAL

To step up this card, we created a card base made of Just Kiddin’ Designer Series Paper. We added an extra panel of Basic White Cardstock, where we stamped a few more flowers and adhered extra flower pieces that we stamped and fussy cut. We finished the card with a few Lemon Lolly Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems.

AVID

We stepped up this card by stamping a few more flowers to the card base using Petal Pink ink. We also used black Stampin’ Emboss Powder to add some shine and dimension to our bee. We stamped the bee wings on Vellum Cardstock and finished the card with a sentiment that we heat embossed with white Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock.
