Sweet as Honey Bee Themed Card
Hello, Friends! Just popping in very quickly today with this Sweet as Honey Bee Themed card made with Really Reasonable Ribbon. Summer is in full swing, and the honeybees are working overtime in our gardens. How thankful I am for these industrious creatures. So today’s post is dedicated to our friends the bees who make sweet honey for us to enjoy.
Do you ever use your ribbons to create a border on your cards and layouts? I love the texture, color and pattern that layered ribbons add. For this card I topped Daffodil Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon with Bold Yellow Check Ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Assortment. They complement the Country Craft Creations Bee House papers perfectly, don’t you think? Everything about this card makes me happy, happy, happy!
Bees, Bows, Blossoms and the Hive
Here’s a neat trick for using up little snips of ribbon. First, tie a loopy bow from Daffodil Satin. Then cut fishtail banners on the ends of small piece of Bold Yellow Plaid. Next, fold the ribbon in half and adhere it on top of the big bow. Tuck in some natural burlap string and a button to finish the bow cluster. Isn’t it pretty?
Now create a scene with a Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board Sugar Bee Hive, Lemon Blossom Honeybee, and honeycomb background. Pop these elements up on foam tabs to add lots of depth and dimension to the composition.
Add another pop of color with Little Birdie Wendy Boho Vibes flowers. Then spatter a little diluted Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the card to lend that organic, botanical shabby chic finish we all love so much!
A Peek Inside
Turn your card into a gift by adding a little tea wallet and honey stick to the interior. I love it when a card doubles as a gift, don’t you?
I hope you are all enjoying some lazy days this summer. I’ve been busy as a bee in my studio, working on a big reveal that I’ll share here tomorrow. You won’t want to miss it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
