The elements that come together to make this “Miss You” Honeybee Home card are in the Heart & Home Suite. The Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP) is just gorgeous!
Honeybee Home Miss You Card
- Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches ( We will cut this to get the other Cinnamon Cider CS card pieces).
- Very Vanilla CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches and 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches (not pictured).
- Heart & Home DSP: 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
Cutting the Card Base
Cut 1 1/2 inches off the left side of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base. This creates the card base and a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Cut 1 1/2 inches off the end of this piece. Now you have all of the card pieces needed.
Start out by stamping the inside of the card. Use Cinnamon Cider Ink to stamp the largest Honeybee onto the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Then stamp the group of flowers along the side.
Now stamp the flower with the stem onto the center of the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Next stamp the two bees in profile. Stamp close to the flowers so it looks like the bees are attending to the flowers.
To finish up the stamping, stamp the sentiment “Miss You” onto the 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Putting the Honeybee Home card together
Use the Paper Snips to cut the right side of the flower with the honeybees. Next adhere this piece to the 1 1/2 x 4 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. The cut portion of the flowers will hang over the edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS.
Adhere the stamped 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base.
Fold the left-hand flap forward and adhere the Heart & Home DSP to the front panel. (Sorry-forgot to make a photo!)
Adhere the “Miss You” sentiment to the left over Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Trim to about 1/4 inch on either side.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower and honeybee piece. Also apply a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the sentiment on the right. Apply two Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment on the left. You’ll see why you need two in a minute.
Remove the protective covering for the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the flower and honeybee piece first. The edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS should line up with the right-sided edge of the front flap. Follow by adhering the sentiment. As you will see, you need two Dimensionals on the left because the right side is elevated by two.
Voila! You have lovely Honeybee Home “Miss You” card!
I loved making this card. I initially did not have any idea how it would turn out. Sometimes I just start out by cutting the card base and stamping some images. Then I start to see how I want them to come together.
It is very subtle, but you can add Bling!. I added the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the center of some of the flowers on the card to the right. In person, the rhinestones really sparkle!
The Honeybee Home stamp set and the Heart & Home DSP will be available to order starting January 4, 2022.
Have a wonderful day! I hope you take some time to craft. This is the best time of year to make cards and papercrafts because you can give them away as Holiday gifts!
