Instructions: Cut cream cardstock to 5 1/2 x 11", score and fold at 5 1/2" to create card base. Stamp honeycomb pattern in Buttercup ink onto top left and bottom right of card base. Stamp bee sentiment in Cactus Flower onto bottom right corner. Use from HCD1-7119 Classic Border to diecut a wavy pattern on card base front as shown. Sponge outside and inside edges of card base with Buttercup and Sepia ink. Diecut honeycomb blocks from the paper collection and sponge edges with coordinating colors of Cactus Flower, Buttercup and Forget-Me-Not. Use dimensional adhesive to attach the blocks in a pattern onto the card. Cut a scene panel from within the paper collection for the inside of card.

Stamp the honey maiden 2x from HCPC-3829 Honey Bee Maidens stamp set in Colorbox Dark Brown ink onto white cs and diecut with coordinating die. 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. For the flowers and leaves, use Cactus Flower, Vivid Chartreuse and Buttercup ink. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape the tiny blooms, leafy sprays and bee maiden. To allow for added dimension, cut into bee wings and skirt.

Cut apart 1 of the bee maidens at the waist, then layer with dimension underneath the other image. This will allow you to create a more dimensional look and flowy skirt. Layer the honey bee maiden, leafy spray and blooms onto card. Use Dries Clear glue to add a touch of glitter over the flowers and rest of card as desired.
