I Couldn't Have Picked A Better Friend Featuring Fun Coloring Stencils

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing my sweet card featuring Honey Bee Stamps beautiful Awesome To The Core stampsHoney Cuts, and coordinating stencil set! I thought I'd create an unexpected green apple to coordinate with the patterned papers I chose. Read on for the details!

For the layers of my A2 card, first I added white cardstock that I embossed with the Burlap 3D embossing folder (I love that texture). Next I chose papers from the Pinstripes & Polka Dots: Outdoors paper pad and the Heartfelt Harvest paper pad and die cut them with two of the Fancy Fall Layering Frames dies.

I added foam tape to the back of the green layer to adhere it to the card. Before I adhered the pink layer, I glued an oval I die cut from a Sweet Stack: Ovals die to the back of it. I used thin foam tape strips to adhere this layer.

I stamped the images from the Awesome To The Core stamp set with Intense Black ink. I also stamped extra flowers and leaves to use for the card . I made sure the ink was dry before I began coloring the images with the coordinating stencils.  These stencils have some fabulous details in them and are so fun to use!

I used ink blender brushes to color the apple, the slice, and flowers with inks I have in my stash. For the leaves I used Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress Inks. The stem and seed are Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I very lightly colored the apple slice with Antique Linen Distress ink. Once all of the images were colored, I cut them out with the coordinating Honey Cuts.

To adhere the pieces to the card I used Bee Creative glue and foam tape for a bit of extra dimension. Then I added three pretty pearl stickers from the Harvest Pearl Stickers.

I will be adding this card to my stash to use any time of the year for one of my sweet friends!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
