Check out that big bee die cut! It's super cute! And big enough to be the focal point of the card! It's the Bee die cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs and it's exclusive to the February box! It comes in 6 separate pieces so you could easily cut the bee from different colors of felt or cardstock. I used the white cardstock included in the box and applied the adhesive sheets to one side (though I wish I had done both sides! Haha!) and cut out all the pieces, except the wings. The kit comes with two pots of glitter - yellow and black. I peeled back the adhesive and applied the glitter to the different parts of the bee and rubbed it in with my fingers. OMG! This glitter is so smooth and velvety! It's like it's molded to the paper! It's amazing! I wanted the wings of the bee to be glittery like the rest of the bee, so I used some glitter embossing powder on the wings.
I mean seriously! The shimmer and shine!! I used the Buzzin Around stamp set to stamp a background with Versafine ink and embossed it with clear powder. I also stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto black cardstock and added a strip of gold glitter cardstock to the bottom.
This is a simple card to recreate, but I am obsessed with the fine glitter!! Watch my process below!
