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

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.

  1. Mary, this is such a stunning card! Love that the bee is front and center to steal the show. The details are perfect!

  2. So beautiful! My son is a great speller and for the third time he will be going to the state spelling bee in March! I always am on the lookout for new bee themed cards to make for him.
