Welcome to the Honey Bee Surprise Bee-Day Blog Hop celebrating HBS 2nd Birthday!
I am so super excited to share this shaped Hive Card with the Build-A-Bee Stamps and Dies, Bee-You-Tiful Sentiments Stamp Set, and the Free Bees stamps and dies (spend $75 or more, and get the Free Bee stamp of the month PLUS the matching die FREE!). How fun is this hive shaped card adorned with an interactive door and super sweet bees?!!! The Build-A-Bee Stamp Set of so fun for building just the bee you need for any project!
The Hive Card base and layer were die cut from Lawn Fawn Sunflower Cardstock. Texture and dimension was created with Gathered Twigs and Wild Honey Distress Inks and a rounded edged mask created with a die. The texture on the hive adds so much interest to the design.
A greeting from the Bee-You-Tiful Sentiments Stamp Set was stamped on the front panel of the shaped card design with the rest of the greeting stamped on the inside of the card. The front hive panel was adhered to the hive shaped card base with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.
Two bees from the Build-A-Bee Stamp Set and four small bees from the Free Bees stamps and dies were stamped on smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored in with Copic Markers before being die cut with the Build-A-Bee Dies and the Free Bees dies. A bit of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen was added to the wings on the bees and a black glaze pen was used on the antennae. Glossy Accents was applied to the eyes on the large bees.
Honey Jar Sequins were adhered to the front of the card as shown.
An additional bee was adhered to the inside of the card for a bit of fun "inside" the bee hive!
