Bee Happy

Hi Janja here. Welcome to the blog today.
In the following posts, I will be creating my samples with dies from past releases. Cottage Cutz dies offer many combination options.

- CottageCutz dies: Birthday Party Bear, Gingerbread Baking Set, Spooky Cake, Beehives, Stitched Alphabet
- card blank: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- white and brown cardstock
- vellum paper
- stencil - honeycomb
- ink pads
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

Start by die-cutting a bear and bees.
For a bowl full of honey, I used a gingerbread baking set. I cut a dripping honey edge out with a spooky cake die, and shorted it with scissors.

Cut each letter four times for more depth.

Cut out white cardstock for the background.
Now add the honeycomb pattern to the white background. Use a sponge or brush and apply color over the stencil.

First, paste the letters to the lower part. Then attach the bear to the upper edge of the letters with self-adhesive pads. Lastly, paste the remaining letters and bees.

Completed card.

Thank you for stopping by.

This is really cute! Instead of paper I use a blend of wool felt which cuts nice in the dies.
