For the card base, the following pieces of cardstock are needed:
Black heavy cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
White cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Honeycomb patterned paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
Because all the letters of the Stitched Alphabet are on one die, I cut four sets of letters from yellow cardstock. I had to cut four additional E's from scraps of cardstock. I'll put the remaining, unused letters into a bag for future use.
I ran the letters through my Xyron sticker maker.
I then cut the images from the Stitched Honey Bees die . . .
. . . and colored them with ink and markers, assembling the pieces to create my hive, bees, and honey pot.
After stacking the letters, I sponged them with a bit of Wild Honey ink and created the front of my card. I did not use all the die-cut images on the front.
The remaining images I glued to the inside of the card and stamped an appropriate sentiment.
