Slimline Birthday Card with Hydrangeas | Honey Bee Stamps

 Happy Wednesday friends!  Today I'm sharing a slimline birthday card I made using Honey Bee Stamps gorgeous Lovely Layers: Hydrangea die set.  I love these layering dies and this made for a fairly quick card!  Read on for the details.

First I created my card base by scoring a piece of 8" x 9" 80# Neenah at 4".  After I folded it, I added a coordinating layer of purple card stock.  Then I die cut 80# Neenah with the Slimline Sentiments: Blanket die and adhered it to the purple layer.  All of the layers are adhered with the fantastic Bee Creative glue. (All products are linked below.)

Next I die cut all of the pieces of the Lovely Layers: Hydrangea from 80# Neenah.  I die cut five leaves.  Then I colored all of the pieces with my Copic markers.  For the flowers I used: BV17, BV04, BV13, BV02, BV31, G14, YG41, and YG11.  I colored the leaves with G28, YG17, YG25, and YG03.

I adhered the layers of the hydrangea together with thin foam squares.  OK, I'll admit to being pretty nervous for this next step, LOL!  I took my Tim Holtz scissors and cut the flower down a line I drew with my pencil.  These scissors were able to easily cut through the layers and the foam squares too!

I adhered the leaves and the flowers with Bee Creative glue.  Then I used a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords stamps and Honey Cuts, stamped them in black ink, and used the coordinating die to cut out "birthday".  The Bitty Buzzwords is such a fabulous set and one I will always keep!  I added thin foam strips to the back to the sentiments and adhered them to the card.

Thank you so very much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful, and crafty, rest of your week!

  1. Your colouring is amazing, I had to check to see if it wasn't a layering stamp. I've always loved hydrangeas but didn't want to colour all those individual flowers. You did a super job!!!
