You see, my mom owns a landscape company, and it's called Bumblebee Gardening and Landscaping. She has a bumble bee for her logo, of course! She likes to give her clients thank you gifts and card, so I'm always working on new bee themed cards for her.
Since this one says "Bee Mine", I'll probably hold on to it to give her for Valentine's Day next February. I'll have to make her some others that say "Thank you", instead.
This file contains all of the elements shown, except for the "Bee Mine". For that, I printed it out on white paper, using Blomster font, and then cut around it before adding it to the card.
Bee Hive Step Card
I did not use the "side step layer" part of this file, but by cutting it, you can add some paper to each side of the black "step trim" so that the beehive steps of the base card are a different color than the side areas of the card. :) My bee wings are cut from acetate, and I used Stickles Glitter Glue to adhere them to the card, then outlined each of the three cuts with more Stickles. I also added stickles to the bee body, used a Peachy Keen Face Stamp on him, and used a glitter gel pen for his antennae and dotted bee flight line. The daisies have some fancy fuzzy brad centers and more Stickles. The beehive border is a two-part file: the black bottom and the top. I embossed the top with Cuttlebug Candy Cane Stripes folder and then sponged the edges of it for some depth.
