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.

Here is another pretty handmade card. This card is great to give to a close friend. It started with standard A2 card in craft cardstock. I cut the scallop shape out from Birthday Bash from a piece of designer paper from DCWV Garden Party stack. The flowers are from the Freshly Picked Cartridge. I used the shadow, so the flowers would stand out against the background. I printed the sentiment out on my printer, and then matted it on some blue card stock before adhering it to the card with some pop dots. To check out more cute sentiment to go with the Fresh Picked Cartridge read my post about it here. Then I punched some holes at the top and attached a ribbon bow. Hope you like this card and happy crafting.
