STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic Black card stock. 

Layer and adhere a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Gold Foil Sheet together with Snail Adhesive and to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Cut a striped piece of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to 1 3/8 x 4. 

Adhere to the center as shown with Snail Adhesive.

Use the largest Stitched Be Mine heart die along with a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop a piece of Gold Foil.  

Adhere the two cropped heart pieces together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Crop a piece of Basic Black card stock with the detailed bee from the Detailed Bee Dies.  Adhere as shown with bits of Snail Adhesive. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black card stock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  

Cover with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Crop to size with a Paper Trimmer and Paper Snips.  

Adhere with Snail Adhesive. 

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Add a gold Metallic Pearl to the center of the bee.
