Thanks for stopping by the blog and hanging out today!
In the midst of these stressful times, I have to admit – I need to read and heed the message of today’s card, haha!
So let’s get into today’s tutorial!
Start off by cutting 3 elements, using the Darling Ribbons and Frames die set. One element will be the background panel for the card, and then the other two elements will be the focal pieces for the front of the card. Because I knew I wanted to use some soft pastel colors in my background (perfect for spring!), I cut one ofthe focal elements out of a subtle and soft colored cardstock, and one out of white cardstock.
Using the Bubbles Stencil and some light colors of dye inks (any stencil and inks you have will work fine!), you’ll want to ink blend your stencil pattern on to one of the focal pieces you cut.
Now take the two focal pieces and glue them together, with the solid colored piece slightly offset behind the stenciled piece you just created.
Glue that down on to your background panel, and then choose your images! I chose the Honey Bees stamp set and then colored them with copic markers, but you can use whatever coloring medium you have on hand.
After the images are colored, cut them out using the coordinating die and then glue them on to your card panel, creating a little scene.
When your scene is finished, you can choose your sentiment, stamp it out, and then glue it down to your panel. Finish off the card by cutting and scoring a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and gluing your assembled panel down to the base.
Thanks again for stopping by for today’s card, and don’t forge to just Bee Cool and take a deep breath!
