Bee-u-tiful


I recently purchased the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge...and mainly for this bee-u-tiful bee hive!  I have wanted to use this cut, and I found the perfect opportunity when I saw these challenges:

Die Cuttin DivasShaped Die-Cut Cards
Paper Cutz ChallengeThe Skies the Limit (feature anything you might find in the sky...bees fly, right?)
Wee MemoriesCAS

This was a quick card to make!  I cut the bee hive from the various card stock colors, embossed the patterned paper, assembled, and added the 3D bee sticker.  I completed this card in less than 30 minutes.  I added glossy accents to the black outline cut, which took about 3 hours to dry.  Done!  My sentiment is on the inside:



Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Sentimentals cut image, layer, and shadow @ 5" (p.44)
Cuttlebug embossing folder:  Morroccan Screen by Provo Craft
paper:  BasicGrey Urban Prairie "Hayloft" and "Wild Flowers"; Bazzill card stock (yellow); ACMoore black card stock;  Stampin' Up! whisper white
sentiment:  Punny-licious by My Pink Stamper
ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
3D sticker:  Recollections
punches:  Fancy Label and Word Window by Stampin' Up!





Happy Wednesday!
