Bee Happy Sentimentals Card!


While making Friday's card using the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge, I came across this bee and the word art, "bee happy" and thought it would make a fun card for today's simple card Monday.  In fact, the more I studied the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge, the more little gems I found on it!


Today's square card was cut at 5" using the Card feature and the "label1" on page 68 of the Sentimentals  cartridge handbook.  I cut the card three times using yellow, white and black cardstock.  Then, I trimmed down the white and black sections to make an additional scalloped border along the the yellow edge.


I cut the "bee happy" and the bee at 1-1/2", also from the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge.  I cut the black wing layer twice. I glued down one layer and then created the second black wing layer by gluing on the yellow swirl parts and then just glued down the center section so I could fluff up the wings.


White pen dots adds interest to the "bee happy"- try not to smudge it like I did (grrr!).  Scalloped white circle cut using Papertrey Ink dies run through the Cuttlebug.


Using a black pen, I created faux stitching along the scalloped edges and the card edges.  I also used some pen marks to make a trail from the bee.


The inside is finished off using a bit of paper.  I made the white section inside by cutting down the white card I used to create one of the scalloped border edges.  I adhered it flush with the bottom.  Paper is by Basic Grey (Urban Prairie line).  Ribbon from Michaels.

I have an additional giveaway to announce this morning!  Have you seen the new Cricut magazine?


Well, the Northridge Media folks have given us two issues to give away here and two on Obsessed with Scrapbooking.  I have also written a review of the magazine over at Obsessed with Scrapbooking so head over there to check it out.  It's quite thorough.  To be eligible to win, leave comments on each post this week to maximize your chances and be sure to follow or subscribe to us!  That's it!

Melanie has a new project up at Courtney Lane Designs also so pop over and check it out - it's sure to rock!!

 Have a great day! This post may contain affiliate links.
