Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a card featuring some Honey Bee Stamps older, but favorite sets, the Branch and Leaves Honey Cuts and Itty Bitty Fall Flowers. I created a sweet card I can use for a birthday, anniversary, or even a wedding! I used newer products that were in the latest Modern Spring release too! I just love how Honey Bee's sets all work so well together--whether new or old! Read on for the easy card design details--with almost NO coloring! I haven't done that in a while. LOL!
First I created my A2 card base by layering pink cardstock with a piece I die cut with the Spring Leaves A2 Pierced cover plate die that was trimmed to 4" x 5-¼".
Next I die cut two shades of green cardstock with the leaves from the Branch & Leaves die set. I cut the branch from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and inked on Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush. I adhered the leaf layers together with Bee Creative glue and then glued them to the branch. I snipped off the end of the branch for it to fit my card.
I die cut two flowers from the Itty Bitty Fall Flowers die set from pink cardstock. If you use spring colors, these sure don't look like Fall Flowers at all! I used a stylus from the Flower Shaping Essentials Kit to shape the flowers and then glued them to the branch. To finish the flowers, I added pink gems from the Hugs and Kisses Gem Stickers set to the flower centers.
The sentiments are from the Bitty Buzzwords: Bloom stamp set and coordinating dies. I die cut the top layer of "bloom" three times and stacked them up for more dimension. The other two sentiments are stamped with Intense Black ink and popped up with foam tape.
For a bit of sparkle (that doesn't show in the photos!) I used a clear glitter pen on the flowers and the "bloom" sentiment. In real life, it adds a very pretty subtle sparkle!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope your day will bloom with happiness!
