I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Using a patterned yellow cardstock from the Backyard Blossom Paper Pad, die cut 1 honeycomb die. Stamp your botanical rose and leaves, I have used the 3 of the same size flowers and 3 leaves. Color your flowers with the Stack and Store Daubers using the Cantaloupe ink and your leaves with the peeled paint. Spray lightly with your mini mister and shape using your Deluxe Flowers Shaping Kit, add small pearl stamens to the center. Trim a light blue patterned mat from your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad 2" x 1 3/8" and stamp with the "You are sweeter than honey" sentiment using the Smokey Grey ink. Stamp your Bee using the Sweet as Honey Stamp set with the Espresso Truffle, color all over in Antique Linen and highlight the body with Wild Honey. Stamp your maiden once full and once just the wings section using the Honey Bee Maidens Stamp set using the Espresso Truffle ink, color your maiden using E50, E51, for the face, arms, legs, R20 cheeks, BG000, BG07 wings, W8,100 shoes, E51, E55, Y35 hair, Y35 bodice, Y35, Y38 stripes, 100 stripes. Fussy cut out the center of the wing section and color using the BG000, BG07. Adhere to main maiden so the wing can be folded upwards. Stamp the honey pot and house from the Honey Bee Bungalows in Espresso Truffle, color the honey pot all over in the Antique Linen, highlight the dipper with E55 and the honey pot with E51, Y35, Y38. Color your house all over in Antique Linen, color the roof in BG000 and highlight in BG02, highlight the windows, door and house shadows in E55, W6 cobblestones, BG02 planter, RV34, G21 flowers and leaves. Using Crystal Glaze highlight the honey in the pots, the roof and door frame and window frame on the house, the body of the bee, the stripes and bag of the maiden. Using stickles highlight the wings and bodice of the maiden, the flowers and cobblestones on the house. When the roof glaze is dry add a little stickles.
Cut your card base using the white cardstock 12 1/8" x 6 1/8". Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Cut 1 white mat 2 1/2" x 1 7/8". Using a light blue card, cut 4 mats 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", 1 mat 2 5/8" x 1 1/8", 1 mat 2 1/4" x 1 5/8". Using the Patterned cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, cut 4 mats 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Trim the "you are Bee-utiful" sentiment from the pad.
Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your patterned mats to the matching light blue mats. Adhere your card front, inserts and card back. Using 3d adhesive in the center of the honeycomb adhere down and now place a dot of glue in each corner and adhere in place. Using 3d adhesive adhere your maiden. Adhere your sentiment to its matching light blue mat and using 3d adhesive adhere slightly under your maiden. Using 3d adhesive adhere your house. Adhere your honey pot. Adhere your flowers beside the left side of your maiden. Adhere your bee and fold up his wings. On the inside left adhere your sentiment and adhere the honey pot to the left side. Highlight the coneflower centers on the card front with stickles.
