Like the Flower and the Bee Great Friends are We

Handmade Bee and Flower Card


To make this adorable friendship card, I started with a piece of 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of craft cardstock. I folded it in half to make a standard A2 size card.  For the first layer I used a piece of  4″ x  5″ Bazzill Basics Lime Crush card stock. Then I layer on a 3″ x 5″ piece of pattern paper from the Sweet Nectar stack . The paper was a pale blue and cream  background with big red flowers in the corners. I used a center piece without any flowers. Before attaching the background layer to the card, I added some green ribbon and a bow. The tulip garden was cut from the freshly picked cartridge. I used distress ink on both layers of the wooden flower pot. After attaching the flower bed, I adhered my bee from the Give a Hoot Cartridge with some pop dots.  For my sentiment I used the Niki Riki thickers to spell out Bee, then I wrote out the rest of my sentiment with a felt tip marker. Hope you love this cute friendship card.

  1. I love the new layout. I’m a sucker for polka dots 🙂 the only suggestion I have would be to change the background color of the bar to the right. It’s all white and a little too bright, it saturates the whole page.
    And I love the Bee card! That’s my new last name you know 🙂
    One more thing, I saw the little cards you made for the mentorees. They are awesome. I love how they have the little slot on the inside like a perfume sample card. I didn’t get to see what surprise you had in that little slot 🙂

    • Thanks for the feedback. You were so right the white looked wrong. Thanks for my doughnut by the way it was amazing.
