Craftsulove Design Team - May Card #1

Morning everyone 💜

The Craftsulove and the Design Team are changing how they do things, so instead of us sharing our project each month we will instead, be on a 3 month rolling rota. So this month it's my turn, and I'm sharing the first of my May cards with you, and I've used the beautiful Craft Consortium 12" x 12" paper pad 'Tell The Bees', a rubber stamp called 'Texture Bees ' from Stamperia, a 'Best Wishes die from Creative Expressions, and the gorgeous metallic card from Tim Holtz. Anyhow I hope you like it. x

All the links to the specific Craftuslove products can be found below, and the link to the general store is here.

Here's What I Did
Firstly I trimmed down a piece of the patterned paper to 4¾" x 6¾"and covered the front of my black 5" x 7" top fold card blank. I added gold glitter pen to the bees on the patterned paper.

Using a stamping platform I stamped out the text/bee stamp with brown distress ink first, then while it was still in place I stamped it again using black ink. I did this as I felt it made the black ink a little warmer. When the ink was dry I trimmed down the stamped panel and added gold glitter pen in places, this was then mounted onto gold metallic card and then onto the card front.

The 'best wishes' sentiment was die cut 4 times - 3 times from black card and once from gold card, all the layers were then glued together and added to the card front over the top of the panel. To complete the card I added 3 small gems to the bottom of the card.
