Today I’m sharing a framed honey bee card made using the newly released Rubbernecker Bee with Hive and Bee with Honey Pot sets. I framed the scenes using the Window with Pierce and added flowers and foliage using the Flower Buds, Spring Leaves and Leaves and Greenery sets. These bees are so cute and I love all the images that come with both sets.
The Frame, Grass and Card Base
- Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
- Use aqua cardstock to cut the frame.
- Cut a 3.75″ x 5.00″ piece of yellow cardstock and lay it on the cutting platform.
- Line up the window die evenly on the yellow cardstock and run through the machine to create the yellow outer frame section. Note: When I want to line up a die for a precise cut like I did with the yellow frame I use my magnetic platform. It holds the die perfectly in place while cutting.
- Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
- Cut grass sections using green cardstock and attach them to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
The Bees and Accessory Pieces
- Use black, yellow and vellum cardstock to cut the bee sections and attach them together using glossy accents. Note: When I’m working with small parts and pieces I use my reverse tweezers to pick up and attach them.
- Cut the nest, hive and honey pot using brown, yellow and gold cardstock and assemble and attach the pieces using glossy accents.
- Use brown cardstock to cut the branch, green cardstock to cut the foliage and yellow and aqua cardstock to cut the flowers.
- Form the leaves for the branch using the leaf tool and molding pad and attach them to the branch using glossy accents.
- Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the leaves on the branch and the greenery sections using glossy accents.
Assemble the Framed Honey Bee Card
- Tuck the branch in behind the frame and attach using small strips of mounting tape.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the bees, nest, hive and honey pot and attach them to the card base.
- Finish the scene by attaching the greenery and flowers to the card base using glossy accents.
Making this framed honey bee card was so much fun. These images are perfectly sized to work with the new Rubbernecker slimline dies as well. Did you see the Honey Bee Card slimline card I posted a few days ago? Thank so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
