Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Fold the Very Vanilla cardstock in half to create your card base.  
  2. Stamp the honeycomb on the 2-1/2” strip of Crushed Curry Cardstock using Crushed Curry ink.  Use scissors to “flag notch” the bottom of the cardstock. Adhere to the front of the card, about 1/4” from the right side.
  3. Using the Cut & Emboss Machine and Early Espresso cardstock, cut the 3-1/4” circle from the Deckled Circles dies.   Set aside.
  4. Using the 3-1/2” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the oval bee body in Crushed Curry ink.  Add the wings, face, and striped body using Early Espresso ink.  Run through the Cut & Emboss Machine and cut the 2-7/8” circle using the Deckled Circles dies.
  5. Adhere the Very Vanilla stamped circle to the Early Espresso circle and adhere to the front of the card.
  6. Using the Early Espresso ink pad, stamp the sentiment onto the 1/2” strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhere to the bottom of the circle die-cuts using Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish.

A Tip from Barb

If you don’t have a die-cut machine or the Circle dies, it’d be very easy to convert this card to a Busy Bee card by simply switching out the circles for rectangles or squares. Example: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock and 3″ x 3″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. It’ll still be an adorable card!
