You Brighten My Day! | Honey Bee Stamps

 Hello my friends!  Today I have a sweet note card-sized floral card using Honey Bee Stamps beautiful Spring Bouquets and the Wood Frame Builder dies!  I love being able to use my colored card stock scraps and also use some of my (hoarded) patterned paper for a no-coloring, quick-and-easy card!

This card is a bit smaller than an A2 size.  It measures 5-½" x 3-½".   Just score a piece of 5-½" x 7" white card stock at 3-½".  Then I cut the gingham paper from the Playful Pastels paper pad to fit the card and adhered it with Bee Creative Glue.

There are five different lengths of Wood Frame Builder dies in the set.  I chose the two that are 3-½" and two that are 5-½".  I die cut three of each from 110# Neenah Solar White card stock.  Then I adhered them with Bee Creative glue.   I set them aside to dry and set a large stamp block on them to make sure the pieces dried flat.

While the frame pieces were drying, I chose a few of the flowers and branches from the Spring Bouquets Honey Cuts.  I die cut several of the flowers and branches from colored card stock scraps in my stash.  I used a ball stylus from the Flower Shaping Essentials Kit to add just a bit of dimension to the flowers and branches.

Next I adhered the frame pieces to the card base with Bee Creative glue.  I also glued the flowers and leaves to the frames.

I chose a sweet sentiment from the Thanks A Bunch stamp set and stamped it with Versamark clear ink.  (Be sure to use your anti-static powder first!)  Then I sprinkled on black embossing powder and heat set it.  Next I used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I added foam tape to the back and popped it up on the card.

It's not often I make a card that does not involve any type of coloring!  I love how sweet this card is, but also quick and easy to make!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
