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.

This cute pirate card was pretty to quick and easy to make. I started with a standard A2 craft cardstock base. Then I used my corner punch to round the corners. I used a 4″ x 5″ piece of blue polka doted paper from the DCWV stack for the background. I used a 1 1/2″ x 5 piece of blue colorbox textured card stock to add interest. Before attaching the background, I added some ribbon. After attached,  I placed eyelets in the corners. The octopus was really easy to assemble, even the white details on his hat. I added the completed octopus with some pop dots. Then I added my sentiment “Arrg” with some Niki Riki Thickers.  I hope you enjoy this card.

Handmade Back to School CardThis super cute back to school card is a 5 x 5 square. The base is recollection craft card stock. The background paper is from  DCWV The Green Stack and has really cool texture. I used a piece of brown paper from The Green Stack for the first layer of the apple. The ruler was cut from a piece of card stock from the K & Company Paper Stack Sweet Nectar.  I don’t like any of shades of green that Recollection makes, so I stock up on variety of Bazzill green shades. I used lime crush for the apple leaves and the bottom green layer of the inch worm. The top layer of the inch worm is a sheet of green from the DCWV Blossom Stack. Both images are from the Create a Critter Cartridge. The apple is from page 25 and the inch worm is on page 65.  I hope you like this card and it inspires you to make a back to school card.
