Instructions: Cut cream cardstock to 6 x 9 1/2", score and fold at 4 3/4" to create card base. Stamp honeycomb pattern in Buttercup ink onto the top right and bottom left of card base. Use from HCD2-7189 Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die to cut opening into card base at an angle. Diecut a coordinating eyelet rectangle border from blue paper within the paper collection. Diecut honeycomb pattern from within paper collection too. Sponge outer edges of card base with Buttercup and Sepia ink. Use the same colors on the honeycomb pattern. Sponge the edges of rectangle border with Forget-me-not ink and attach directly onto the card base around the edges of opening. Carefully tear apart the honeycomb pattern at an angle into half and attach onto the top right and bottom left of card as pictured. Attach a bee bungalow scene panel onto the inside center of card.
Stamp the honey maiden from HCPC-3829 Honey Bee Maidens and bungalow from HCPC-3830 Honey Bee Bungalows stamp set in Colorbox Dark Brown ink onto white cs and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the floral spray from HCPC-3828 Garden's Edge Coneflower and tiny carnation from HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation stamp set in Archival Black ink onto white cs and diecut with coordinating dies.
For detailed color application, use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color. For the bee maiden, use the Buttercup, Sepia, Cactus Flower, Pink Peony, Vivid Chartreuse and Forget-me-not. Use all the same inks except Cactus Flower and Pink Peony to color the bee bungalow. For the flowers and leaves, use Cactus Flower, Vivid Chartreuse and Buttercup ink. Cut apart bee sentiment, sponge edges with Buttercup ink. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape the tiny blooms, leaves, bee bungalow and bee maiden. To allow for added dimension, cut into bee wings and skirt.
Cut apart the leafy sprays into a couple separate pieces. Use glue and dimensional adhesive to attach everything onto card as shown. Use Dries Clear glue to add a touch of glitter over the flowers, leaves and rest of card as desired.
