Can you stand this stinkin’ cute HapBee BeeDay Mixed Media Card? I am so excited to share with you this project BEEcause Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Whimsy Stamps are collaborating on an Instagram Hop & Giveaway this week! Before we get to the hop, let me show you my cardmaking photo tutorial. Stick around to the end, we’ll take you to the link.
HapBee BeeDay Honeycomb Die Cut
Use a piece of black cardstock and apply 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium to the back. Die-cut it with the Honeycomb Pattern Die. Designer’s Note: Because it is intricate, I rolled it through the machine about two to three times. Set aside.
Inking a Background
On a 4.25 x 5.5-inch white card panel, I inked the background with Distressed Oxide in Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, and Dried Marigold. Then I misted water on it and let dry. It creates a wonderful mixed media backdrop for my card design. 🙂
Next, I stamped a sweet bee with a flower from the Bee Happy Rubber Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock and colored it with watercolor pencils. When done, I fussy cut it and set it aside. Next, I stamped the sentiment, cut it to a ribbon tail, and mat it with black cardstock.
Using the card elements as a guide, I determined where to place my Adhesive Dots Small. Take off the liners to pour gold glitter on top, press to secure, and tap off the excess. As a result, I have glittered accents for my card panel.
To add more accents, I used the Creative Photo Corners in Gold on all four corners of the card panel and secured it on the black card base.
Assembling the Card
To finish, take off the liner from the back of the honeycomb pattern die cut and place it on the panel. Next, place 3D Foam Circles White on the back of the bee and adhere it to the left of the honeycomb. Add the sentiment to the bottom right corner with the E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots. Lastly, add the honeycomb pieces around the panel and the HapBee BeeDay Card is done!
