Love these Bees!


A sketch challenge inspired me to create this Bee-utiful card!
The stamps come from the Backyard Basics stamp set and were cut out on the Big Shot with Framelits and the Magnetic Platform.  The platform makes cutting details like the legs and antennae of the bees so simple and accurate.  They stay right where they belong on the magnetic platform.
The color of the card base is Basic Black, topped with a layer of Smoky Slate card stock.  The Honeycomb embossing folder was used on the Vellum card stock and So Saffron card stock.
The bees were stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder and a heat tool.  They  were popped up with Stampin'  Dimensionals on the back.
A little banner was added by stamping the sentiment from Petite Pairs stamp set.   It was die cut with the Itty Bitty  Banners framelits and layered onto a small piece of Basic Black card stock.
 I love how easy this card came together!

Thanks for visiting today.
Happy Stamping!
