Garden Party

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne with you today and I have a card featuring the Golden Bear die from the new Gardening release.  The bear isn't used in this card but the adorable beehive and bees are!
I started this card by using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches blog.
I cut my base panel, and two inner panels from white cardstock.  The base panel I embossed using a floral embossing older and I cut the other panels using the largest of the stitched rectangle dies and the second largest of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle dies.
I the went through my cardstock samples and chose my colors.
I cut all the pieces and used ink in the same or slightly darker shades to give some depth to the edges of the pieces.  The bees wings are cut from vellum.  I loe using vellum for wings so that they are translucent.  Art Glitter Glue allows you to glue vellum without the glue showing through.
 Next, I centered and adhered the panels together.
Using the green cardstock, I cut the phrase using the Garden Phrases die.
I added it and the other elements to the center panel.  Finally, I added a few sequins.
This new release has a wonderful variety  of dies that can be used for numerous occasions.  Be sure to stop by the online store where select dies are on sale for Memorial Day!

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
