Bee happy!


Today I'm here to show you a card I made for the Hero Arts challenge this month.

I followed the sketch they gave as well as the theme of friendship :)

Bee happy chevron

Nice an easy and CUTE!

Here's a look at the inside:

First I took a piece of Pool Layering paper, cut it to size and scored it in half. Then I used the Hero Arts Zig Zag cling background stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give a gorgeous tone on tone effect. Next I diecut the front panel using a Tim Holtz mini Ornamental die.
I stamped the large flower image from the Be Happy clear stamp set on the inside of the notecard, being careful to position it so that it would peek through the window in the front panel.
I also stamped the two little bees onto some scrap white cardstock.
I coloured in both the bees and the flower with Prismacolour pencils. Lastly I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card and attached the bees to the front panel!

These little bees are one of my favourites of all time. They're so sweet looking :)

That's it!

Here are the tools and products I used to make the card:


I hope you like it!

I'll be back soon with more :)

Thanks so much for stopping by--take care!
