I used a standard sized kraft card base and the B&T papers from Buzz and Bumble. The sentiment is from the retired Pair a Phrase stamp set. I simply curved it around the edge of my circle and aligned it on my block before stamping. I stamped the bee and the flowers using the Buzz and Bumble WotG stamp set on Colonial White cardstock. The honeycomb circle was a cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The flowers I lightly tinted with Creme Brulee ink and our blending pen. I fussy cut the flowers and attached them. I used 3d foam tape behind my circle to give some dimension and some of our hemp twine for a bow. That was it.
The second card was a little trickier. They have a nifty little die that will cut the three circles at once. I do not have the pleasure of owning such a thing, so in order for me to get the three circles I did a lot of eyeballing and guesstimating (technical terms ;)) I used the Cricut and the "center point" key. It was a little tricky, but it got the job done. When I finally got the circles cut, I cut the card to fit it. SO this card is a 5x7. The colors were a little different for me, but I really liked this paper. I'll go ahead and apologize for the horrible lighting on both pictures.
The paper was some K&Company I had in my stash, along with the ribbon. I used CTMH gold embossing powder for the sentiment, which is from the Casual Expression stamp set. I also added a detail line on both sides of the card using our gold metallic marker. During my attempt to cut the right size circles, in the right place, I had some interesting fall out. I used a smaller circle and a ring of the same paper to accent the cut outs. I punched some tiny butterflies from Cranberry cardstock and attached them. It's a little busier than I intended, but oh well.
That's it for today. I hope to have more soon. Thanks for stopping by.
