Happy 2022 crafty friends! I hope the new year is off to a good start for you! For my first card of the new year, I'm using Honey Bee Stamps' beautiful Love Is In The Air stamps and coordinating dies. Once I had the images colored, this card came together very quickly! Read on for the details.
First I created my 5" x 7" card base. I adhered some teal card stock to the side-folding base. Then I trimmed 80# Neenah to 4-¾" x 6-¾". Then I used the Swirling Leaves Pierced A2 Cover Plate die to add the piercing to the card. Now you may be saying, "wait, this is a 5" x 7" card and the cover plate is A2 sized!" Well, I just turned the cover plate and placed it over the top half of the white card stock, ran it through my machine, then carefully positioned it on the bottom, and ran it through again. Works like a charm! I adhered the piece to my card with Bee Creative glue.
I stamped the images from the Love Is In The Air set with Intense Black ink and colored them with my Copic markers. Here are the colors I used: flowers and birds: R59, R29, R27, R35, & R43; birdhouse: BG09, BG49, BG15, C3, C1, & C00; leaves: YG17, YG25, & YG03. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Next I stamped the sentiment from the Inside: Kindness set with Bee Creative Clear Embossing ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
I used a combination of foam dots and Bee Creative glue to adhere the images and sentiment to the card front.
