I am so glad that you buzzed in for Day 3 of Bee Week because I really do care about you. This is an encouragement card using the honey bee bundle. There are so many friends that need love, prayers, and caring that this bee card just designed itself. If you are reading this and need a little prayer, know that I am sending you prayer-filled thoughts.

BEE FACTOID: Honey bees communicate with one another by dancing. So, if that doesn’t put pictures in your head and make you giggle, I don’t know what will. I just flashed ‘Hammer-time’ with bees. I can’t unsee it!

Here is my card for Day 3 of Bee Week using this bundle of products.

Encouragement card with bee theme using Honey Bee Bundle from Stampin' Up!

Honey Bee card layout with 3 front panels

MEASUREMENTS (Supplies and Links are at the end)

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ plus 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ for stamping bees
  • Gold Foil Sheets: 3-15/16″ x 5-6/16″ 
  • DSP: 3-3/4″ x 5″ plus
  • Coordinating DSP for Stitched Rectangle panels: (3x) 1-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ 
  • Basic Black Cardstock: scrap for sentiment plus 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ backing bee die-cuts

ASSEMBLY (use any die-cutting and embossing machine)

  1. Adhere the Thick Whisper White and Basic Black squares together. TIP: layering 2 cardstocks makes the die-cut more rigid and dimensional. Use Adhesive sheets or lots of single-layer adhesive tape.
  2. Stamp Queen bee and 2 small bees in Memento Black.
  3. Stamp sentiment 2x with Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. 
  4. Snip each line of the sentiment apart. HINT: The 2nd stamped sentiment makes it easier to cut the sentiment apart. Cut the top, then bottom from one. Then cut the middle out of the other.
  5. Color bee body with Daffodil Delight Blend or Stampin’ Write Marker. Then go over stripes yellow stripes with Wink of Stella.
  6. Adhere the Stitched Rectangles to the card front.
  7. Put a Black Dimensional behind the bee.
  8. Assemble card layers as it pleases you. Use glue dots behind the sentiment. Add Gold Faceted Gems. 
  9. Grab a Whisper White Envelope or a Gold Foil Edged envelope and add some decorative stamping. I used a die-cut of the queen bee and attached it to the envelope with a thin layer of liquid glue.

Come back tomorrow for another Bee Week creation using the Honey Bee Bundle.
