I've used yellow and black snippets with the Dovecraft Bee Happy die set for this card, inlaying the yellow pieces into the black. I ran the whole thing through the Grand Calibur after adding all the die cuts, to give a more even finish and to help the Stick-It adhesive to stick firmly, as it can be a bit temperamental. It looked a bit bare at the top but I thought another bee would be overkill (plus I'd finished the last scrap of yellow), so I stencilled in a little patch of honeycomb instead.

I am sharing this with

CAS on Friday - Dies
Pixies Snippets Playground - Challenge 320
Sparkles Monthly Challenge - Clean and Simple
AAA Cards - die cuts only (hope that bit of stencilling's OK!)


  1. I am very keen on bees and your card is fabulous Jane. Great dies and a super design. I really like the stencilling at the top. Barbxx

  5. lovely realistic almost looking bee. Thank you for playing at AAA cards

  6. Fab die cuts and a great tip for flattening out inlaid dies too. Thanks for joining in with the current AAA Cards Challenge.

  7. Brilliant card Jane! I do love bees and honeycomb for cards - and adding the stencilling was a great touch as well!

    Lots of folk have taken to running their work through their machines after adding dies - it does give a lovely finish I always think. I spotted earlier today that one of our playmates adds a sheet of paper over the work to protect it when running it back through the machine. Another idea to add to the armoury of hints and tips!

  9. A beeutiful card that anyone would be delighted to receive. Sorry, I can't help myself, I think I may be developing a problem....x

  10. The die cuts of the bee and the honey comb are beautifully color coordinated with the die cut sentiment. Thank you for playing along with us at AAACards-hugs bharati
