Instructions: Card size: 5 1/2 X 5 1/2". Start by making the base from white cardstock, I used a center-step template I found on the Internet here. Cut pieces of decorative paper (the plaid) to cover each space, including the inside bottom, then cut more decorative paper (blue with honey cone) a little smaller to place on top of the plaid. Cut a sentiment from decorative paper for the bottom. Glue all pieces to panels and set aside. Stamp "queen" bee, little bees, coneflowers, honey pot, little bungalow and the smallest sunflowers using black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Color using Copic Markers, shape each with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit on the back side of all pieces. Use your fingers and squeeze the Sunflowers down into a cone shape. Using the border punch punch a strip of grass from designer paper. Use very thick glue to "build up" centers and then add Prills. Glue wires colored green inside and allow everything to dry thoroughly. Add a thin layer of transparent glitter to the wings of all the bees (use a sponge or paint brush to apply glue in a thin layer, make sure to rinse glue out of brush or sponge right away). After everything is colored and all glue is dry, it's time to put the card together.

Glue house to left side of center, coneflowers to both narrow sides, the honey jar at the far right bottom next to sentiment, the "Queen" at the top right of center and the sunflower/coneflowers next to the house. Cover bottom with a border of grass. Glue little bees on, some with acetate to hang off/hover over Coneflowers. Add Prills in various colors for flowers at bottom, around house, and in pots. Glue the tiny gold ball onto door for knob. Some pieces (the Queen, honey jar and some parts of some Coneflowers) are popped up with foam tape.

Inside the card: Cut the decorative border and cover the top with plaid paper. Glue down just the two ends/sides and the bottom to form a pocket. Cut the tag out of some coordinating decorative paper and stamp sentiment on it at an angle. Add a ribbon at the top and insert into the pocket made. See more photos here on my blog.
