Hello friends. There are still a few more weeks left of Fall and even though I’ve been knee deep in Christmas card making, I wanted to make some more Fall cards. I brought out some Honey Bee Stamps stamps and dies for this one. An easy way to make a dimensional background without having to emboss is to use diecuts.
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base, another piece to 4 x 5-1/4″, and a piece of Catherine Pooler Designs Sunflower Fields Forever 6 x 6 Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″.
I stamped some images from the Honey Bee Stamps Happy Fall Y’all 4×6 Stamp Set onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them with Copic Markers. I used Y13, Y18, & Y18, E25 & E29, and YG25 for the sunflower; YG03, YG25 & YG67 for the stems and leaves; Y13, Y18, & Y18, C5 & C9, R20, BG10 & 0 (blender) for the bees. I use the coordinating dies to cut out the images. I popped up the bee with Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn THANKS THANKS THANKS Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and added a strip of pattern paper from Catherine Pooler Designs Sunflower Fields Forever 6 x 6 Paper measuring 1 x 4-1/4″ as well as a sunflower and bee.
