“Bee” Happy

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “BEE”DD_Bee_June2Inspired”. Use bees and/or anything that inspires you on the mood board.
(honeycomb, yellow, black, hexagon etc). The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

I was inspired by the honeycomb pattern and the bees in the inspiration photo. I used an embossing folder to create a honeycomb background for the card. The embossing folder also have a die-cut,  which I use to fill up the pattern on the top layer with various designer paper. I added a kraft -coloured frame  to the pattern layer. I then die-cut the bees from kraft and sand coloured cardstock and distress the edges. This is the only bee die I own and it is one of the first dies that I purchased with my Cuttlebug in 2009. The bees were added with mirror tape for dimension. I finished off with a combined stamped and die-cut sentiment and a pink heart.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    I love this so much. The die cut bees are so stinkin’ cute, but what really makes this card are the patches of hex cut patterned paper. That is just GENIUS!!!

    I am loving those honeycomb that are filled in. It is like a patchwork quilt and it matches the cute bees. Just adorable!
