Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
I am so in love with the Double Z-Fold Card. It is so easy to make and I had to use the adorable Stamp Set Dragonfly Dreams, which also has the co-ordinating dies. This Set has not only dragonflies, but bees too! The bees very often tend to get overlooked. The clarity of these images is quite remarkable. Such an enchanting Stamp Set and what could be more apt in the Summer months than BEES!!
It took me quite a while to design this Card today but it was so worth it. It is not that it was difficult in style or anything, but its deciding the layout that takes the time. That is the hard part.
So I have used the Daisies, or they could be Sunflowers from the pack of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers. The large images work perfectly with my bees, of which I stamped out 5 of them, and die cut them out using the dies. The card base uses Pool Party Cardstock, layered up with Whisper White and the Delightful Daisy Designer Paper.
It is such a pleasure to stamp these sentiments and images on the Whisper White Cardstock that runs across the bottom half of the card using Pool Party, Old Olive and Early Espresso Inks. Those gorgeous little bees were stamped out using Early Espresso Ink. They say that “the devil is in the detail” and after die cutting my bees using my Big Shot I had to add some of the Clear Wink of Stella to the wings! Absolutely gorgeous, don’t you think? I hope you love it too. An easy card with a great looking style.
In the attached video I demonstrate how easy it is to add yellow colour to your stamped bees, along with lots of other hints and tips.
Happy Crafting with LOVE from Sandra xx
