Bees & Honey

My anniversary is on Sunday, so I made this card to give to my husband.

The card base was created using the "Spring Fling" Cricut cartridge.  The darker yellow mat, behind the hexagonal cut-outs is covered in mustard seed Distress Glitter.  I created the black border by cutting a rectangle at 5 1/2"x4 1/4," and then used the Card Mat Dies from Jaded Blossom to cut out the middle, leaving a small border.

The adorable bee bear is from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  It is part of the Busy Bee Bears cut set.  I added glossy accents to the eyes, nose, and honey.  The heart has fruit punch Stickles on it and the center of the flower has yellow Stickles on it.  I also doodled veins on the wings.

The sentiments are stamped on banners from the Mini Tag Dies 2 set.  The sentiments are from the We Go Together Like 2 stamp set.  The word "honey" on the pot was stamped using part of a sentiment from the Honey Bunny stamp set.  All stamps were from Jaded Blossom.

I used a lot of dies from Jaded Blossom to create the inside of the card.  The black mats and white mat are all from the Card Mat Dies.  I used two different sizes of the Stitched Circle Dies to create my bee.  The wings were created by cutting one of the circles in half.  I used the Snowman Dies for the eyes, then used a black marker to put in the pupils.  I created the stripes by just cutting small strips of yellow and trimming them to fit the circle.  The sentiment is from the You Go Together Like (add on) stamp set.
