I have just purchased the beautiful Honey Bee Stamps: Layering Holiday Bells Honey Cuts and started off making a white and gold Christmas card. But I ended up going in a totally different direction in the end and made a wedding card with a bouquet of Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers flowers and leaves. Even though it looks totally different from what I initially imagined I am very happy with the results and I hope you like it too.
For my card I have made a top folding 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base out of white cardstock. I cut a piece of gold card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it to the front of the card. I die cut a Delicate Daisy Cover Plate Base and Top out of white cardstock and layered them together before adding them to the front of the card.
I die cut an oval using the Amaizng Paper Grace Elegant Twist Oval dies out of gold cardstock and then die cut one oval using the outer and inner decorative twist dies out of white cardstock and added it to the gold base. I then die cut two decorative twist oval frames out of white cardstock and added it to the base oval which was then added to the front of the card.
I die cut the bells from the Honey Bee Stamps: Layering Holiday Bells Honey Cuts out of white and gold cardstock. I assembled them and then added a gold bow out of the same set and added them to the the inside of the oval frame with foam tape.
I have die cut, coloured and assembled the flowers and leaves from the following dies: Lovely Layers – Dianthus (coloured yellow), rosebuds from the Roses dies – coloured blush and green, leaves and lavenders from the Spring Greenery dies and the gold leaves are from the Winter Greenery set. These were all layered around the top of the bells to ressemble a wedding bouquet. To add a little glamour and sparkle I have added some Wink of Stella to the flowers.
To finish my card I have stamped the sentiments from the Honey Bee Stamps Mini Messages stamp set in Wow embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I die cut the sentiments out using the coordinating die set and added them to the card using foam strips.
I then added some gold pearls around the sentiment.
