The ready side-fold card measures 6" by 8". For the first layer, choose a light blue color paper from the designer paper collection and cut a piece measuring 5 1/2" by 7 1/2". Distress all the edges with Peacock Feather distress ink and further distress all the sides with sharp scissors.
For the second layer, choose a green color paper from the designer paper collection and cut 5 1/2" by 7". Distress the edges with peeled paint and cut the lower edge using a solid die from Decorative Medallion Die. Also, cut the decorative Medallion from white cardstock and glue on the cut base. Layer the panel on the prepared blue base and further layer it on the ready card base using glue dots.
Stamp the images of honey jars, honey bees, honey bee maiden and coneflowers using black archival ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color all the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
For shaker, cut 7-8 circle frames using Eyelet Circle Die, one solid base from the designer paper collection and one solid circle from the acetate sheet. Make a shaker window by gluing frame dies, add painted images as shown and add shaker elements. Close the shaker window with acetate top frame.
For flowers: To prepare sunflower, you need 3 pieces of largest flower images from Classic Sunflower Collection. Stamp the images with coffee brown archival ink, cut them using the coordinating die and paint them using Buttercup and Tea Rose archival inks. Shape the flowers using Deluxe flower shaping Kit and add black stamens from Rock Candy Stamens Collection. Filler flowers are created using Wildwood Floral die. For leaves, stamp the leaves from Classic rose stamp set with Library ink archival ink, paint them using leaf green and Fern Green archival inks and cut them using the coordinating die. Shape them using deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and add Crystal Clear Glitter.
Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown. To finish the card, add a painted honey bee maiden on the wobbler spring on the left side of the shaker window.
