Sharing a bee-lated birthday card I made using this adorable image called Bee Gnome from KLM Digital Designs today. This adorable image also comes with 3 sentiments.
To make the card, I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers. To add some honey coming out of the large jar, I used a Q-Tip and VersaMark ink to create the overflow and then added Emerald Creek – Seth Apter – Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture embossing powder. This was heat set using my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I did this twice. The image was put through my Xyron Creative Station to turn the image into a sticker. I attached the image to some black cardstock and fussy cut around the image again.
I used Hammermill paper to create the base shape of the card 8.5″ x 4.25″. I scored the paper at 4.25″. I opened up Microsoft Word and imported the background papers from Bee Digital Paper – Digital Designs and Art. For the main background I sized the image to to 5.25″ x 4″. I drew 2 large ovals within the Microsoft Word application and made 1 black and the other a honey yellow colour. I imported the sentiment from Bee Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) and placed it in front of the smaller oval. Then I printed out everything on my printer. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around all of the sides of the background paper.
To assemble the card, I added double-sided tape to the back of the background paper and attached it directly to the base. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the back of the image then popped up on the front of the card. Lastly, I added some bee embellishments from Buttons Galore & More – Spring Fling Collection – SF100 Busy Bees using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
