Today's card idea came from my mother.  My dad's birthday is in a few weeks so she wanted me to design her a card.  I asked if she had any ideas and this is what she came up with.  I used my Silhouette to cut out all of the pieces for this card.  After everything was cut out, it was quite easy to assemble.  I did use a technique that I saw another blogger use earlier this week.  They used vinyl for a part of their card that was more difficult to assemble.  For this card, I used black vinyl for the bees strips.  I was going to glue the strips down but I decided it was going to be much easier with vinyl and transfer paper.  The vinyl and the transfer paper work out great since it was so easy to line up the black strips with the body.  For the background, I cut out a hexagon background and used it as a stencil.  I used my ink daubers and yellow ink to color in the hexagon to make it look like a honeycomb.  Until tomorrow, happy carding everyone!!!

  1. The colors on this came out quite nicely, my only wish is that the bees had little googly eyes :)
