Today I am excited to share a special unique birthday card featuring the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits that my guests that attended my Sale-a-bration kick off party had an opportunity to make. I love this card so much that we also made it at our last Diemonds team meeting.
Don’t you just love this little bumble bee?
The outside card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Vellum cardstock folded in half. I love how you can see the inside card through the Vellum.
The inside card is 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ Thick White cardstock scored at 3 1/4″ and adhered flat to the Vellum card base. Since you can see the adhesive through the Vellum I added a 4″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Crushed Curry cardstock to the back side of the Vellum card base.
To create the feel of a beehive, I used the Hexagon dynamic embossing folder to add bold texture to the 4″ x 2 3/4″ Crushed Curry cardstock layer and then back it with a 4 1/4″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock before adhering it to the front of the inside card front.
The Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders make extra deep, super crisp impressions-Love them!
I stamped the greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Memento Black on a 3/4″x 3 1/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and then adhered it to the front of the inside card with liquid adhesive.
I die cut two bee’s in Basic Black cardstock with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and then backed the body with punched pieces of Crush Curry cardstock.
I adhered the bee’s to the inside and outside of the Vellum card front back to back with dimensional dots.
I stamped the bee image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set in Memento Black and colored the body with the Crushed Curry marker.
The birthday greeting I stamped in Memento Black ink is from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set.
I finished the card front with adhesive Rhinestones.
I am excited to gift this Bumble Bee birthday card to help a friend celebrate their special day!
Hope You Enjoy,
