Craftsulove - May Card and Tutorial

Morning everyone 💜

This week's Craftulove card and tutorial is using the gorgeous Craft Consortium 12" x 12" paper pad 'Tell The Bees' and a 'Best Wishes' sentiment die from Creative Expressions, plus some of the gorgeous metallic card from Tim Holtz. I hope you enjoy the tutorial, if you have any questions please let me know. 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
1. Open the inside cover of the 12” x 12” pad and cut off the embellishment page. Cut out the 2 large hexagons.

2. Draw around both of the cut out hexagons onto a piece of the pale gold metallic card leaving a border around the edge, and then cut them both out. Mount the hexagons onto the cut out shapes, and add clear glitter to the bees and crowns.

3. Remove a sheet of the honeycomb patterned paper from the pad. Trim the sheet down to cover the front of the 6” x 6” card blank leaving a slim border around the edge, and then attach it.  

4. Cut a strip of black card to ¼” x 6” and attach it on the left hand side of the card front.

5. Die cut the ‘Best Wishes’ sentiment from black card, and glue it to the bottom of the card front.

6. Add foam pads on either side of the backs of the hexagon panels, then stick them above each other on the card front over the top of the black strip.

7. Cut out 2 of the large bees from the sheet and add glitter to their wings. Glue one of the bees flat onto the card front and attach the other to the hexagon panels using a foam pad.

8.  To complete the card add 3 gems to the black strip below the hexagon panels.
