Cardmaking

Happy Bee Day Card

After making that elephant card the other day I was inspired to stick with the animal theme.

Hedgehogs and bees were my next cute things to make a card out of and here is the latter. The former hasn’t come to fruition yet.

beesSo this is basically my take on something I saw on Pinterest just with different yellow papers (the one on Pinterest looked more like a honeycomb kind of design), bees and the sentiment was stamped in one of the hexagons as opposed to cut out. This card is pretty cute but was a bit fiddly to put the bees together and get them and the letters stuck down thanks to all the little faffy bits of cardstock. I have found that cutting out letters as a mirror image in the Silhouette leads to the letters themselves being a lot neater as the blade does seem to pull on the card a little when it’s cutting small things.

Anyway, I just ended up making one of these for the time being, and it’s in the shop now if you like it!

What do you think?
